About Bike for the Cure XX

In Summary

“Bike for the Cure XX” is a 450 mile bicycle ride,
along the Pacific Coast, from San Francisco to Los
Angeles CA for the 33rd Annual HDSA Convention
(June 7-9, 2018). It is the 100th anniversary of
the birth of, Marjorie Guthrie, the widow of famed
folksinger Woody Guthrie. In 1967 she founded the

Huntington’s Disease and to raise funds for family
services and research towards a cure.

About the Route

This year’s ride will be from San Francisco to Los Angeles along the Pacific Coast. It is considered by many to be a truly epic ride, one of America’s premier cycling routes, with spectacular ocean vistas. We will ride through many quintessential cities, like San Francisco, Monterey, the Big Sur area, and Santa Barbara. We will also visit the Hearst Castle on the Central California Coast and perhaps one or two of the California Missions.
