While we are hoping to gather in person this September, the health and safety of our participants and volunteers is our highest priority. Please click the following: COVID-19 Updates for the most up to date information regarding this event.
Cancer doesn't stop for the COVID-19 pandemic, and neither can we. Since 2013, the Breakthrough Bike Challenge has funded over $1.675 million in cancer research.
100% of the money raised funds breakthrough research at Penn Medicine's Abramson Cancer Center.
The BBC is working to assess whether it can hold an in-person ride at the Daniel Boone Homestead on September 12, 2021. Regardless, with virtual events August 30 –September 12, 2021 for bikers, spinners, runners, and walkers, BBC is a great opportunity to connect with friends, family, and the cancer community!
All participants can track their progress on the free Strava app and join our Breakthrough Bike Challenge private clubs for biking/spinning and running/walking to track your miles and physical activity.
