Bicyclists Gather Once Again To Ride Against Prostate Cancer

More than 130 bicyclists took part in this year’s RCDCU bike-a-thon “Bike to Fight Prostate Cancer,” held at Franklin Middle School – Hamilton Street campus.

This was the 12th year the charity ride was held. Cyclists could choose a 10-, 30- or 50-mile route, all of which took them through different parts of Franklin Township.

On hand to cheer the participants on was Township Councilwoman Kimberly Francois (D-At Large).

“I’m very, very honored to be a part of kicking off this 12th annual RCDCU bike-a-thon,” she said. “This is a great event, and when you do your 10 miles or 30 miles and 50 miles, whatever you do, you’re going to see how beautiful our township is as you go by the canal, our historic Rocky Hill, Kingston, Colonial Park.”

“We are committed to preserving open space here in Franklin Township, and you will see that,” Francois said.

“We are really grateful that you are here today, this is such an important cause, to fight against prostate cancer,” she said.

After the ride, awards were given to members of the Central New Jersey chapter of the Major Taylor cycling club for having the largest team, and to the New Brunswick Fire Department for their members’ fundraising efforts this year.
