Eventbrite - 18th Annual Brandywine Valley Heating & Air Conditioning Challenge for Cancer Bike Tour / Registration Opens 1/1/16

A fun, healthy, meaningful way to celebrate life!

For young families, the family ride is just 5 miles. Bagels, juice and fruit are provided for breakfast and there is a great barbecue following the ride. This year, we will also have bouncy castles, face painting and balloons.

For more experienced riders, the 10, 25, 50 and 63 miles tours are challenging rides through the scenic countryside of Chester County. Spend time making new memories with dad while you make our community a better place for patients living with cancer.
