Cyclists raising funds for cancer research stop in city

Posted

UTICA — More than 200 cyclists arrived in the city on Thursday, completing the fourth leg of a more than 500-mile ride across New York to raise funds for cancer research at Roswell Park Comprehensive Cancer Center in Buffalo.

The cyclists were scheduled to arrive, starting at 4:30 p.m. at the Donovan Middle School, 1701 Noyes St., with a dinner and program following their arrival.

The riders, hailing from more than two dozen states from across the country, each raised at least $3,500 for critical cancer research. To date, the 2022 Empire State Ride has raised over $1.4 million.

Over seven days, the riders travel through the Hudson River Valley and Mohawk River Valley before joining the Erie Canal corridor. The group will cycle through some of the most scenic parts of the state and make overnight stops in the Hudson Valley, Albany, Utica, Syracuse and Rochester. On Saturday, July 30, the Empire State Ride will complete its 558th mile at the top of Niagara Falls.
