The 16th annual Renaissance Cyclists Defeating Cancer United fundraising ride is once again in-person, after a two-year hiatus due to the Covid-19 pandemic.

The money raised will be donated to the Robert Wood Johnson University Hospital, RWJ Barnabas Health at Somerset to help defray the cost for prostate screening, and the Rutgers Cancer Institute of New Jersey.

Registration is open now. Fees are $45 for the 30- and 50-mile rides, $35 for the 10-mile ride and $15 for the 3-mile walk/ride.
