An Asheville-area cycling event to celebrate life and health and raise scholarship funds to allow 100 local individuals to participate in LIVESTRONG at the YMCA.
Almost 200 survivors in the Asheville area are on a waiting list to participate in the program, which costs $515 per individual. Brainchild of Laurey Masterton, a cycling enthusiast and cancer survivor herself, the goal of the inaugural JOYride is to raise $51,500 in scholarships for 100 Asheville area residents.
JOYriders will participate in a Half-Century (50-mile) or Quarter-Century (25-mile) ride along the French Broad River, ending at Carrier Park for the JOYride Celebration. All participating JOYRiders will receive a JOYRide T-Shirt and LIVESTRONG wristband.
InSPIRIT Riders will ride stationary cycles in their homes or exercise facilities prior to the road ride or raise funds as riders "in spirit."
Throughout the JOYride, activities for children and youth--including a ride contained within Carrier Park--will be ongoing.

To participate is simple—whether you ride on the road, on your stationary cycle or in spirit, the entry fee is the same: $51.50. And so a the rewards. Register to be a road rider, stationary cycle rider or inSPIRIT rider by clicking on JOYride Registration below. To make a donation in support of the LIVESTRONG program, click on Donate Now. And then send a link to this website to 9 of your friends and ask them to join you in giving JOY to one more survivor. Together we can cut the waiting list in half!
