The The LAB Ride organizers are proud to announce that funds raised from this year’s ride will benefit CURE Ocular Melanoma (CURE OM), the Melanoma Research Foundation’s new initiative focused on ocular melanoma.
Established just recently in late 2011, CURE OM is dedicated to the advancement of research as well as providing and expanding a support system for people affected by this disease.
The LAB Ride is very proud to donate the money raised with this year’s ride to the Melanoma Foundation’s Cure OM initiative.

The LAB Ride | May 19, 2012 | San Francisco, CA | 9 AM
The LAB Ride is a 34.7 mile bike ride along the San Francisco Bay. This is a “fun ride” intended for riders of all skill levels. Some of the highlights include: sweeping views of the San Francisco skyline, a cycle over the world famous Golden Gate Bridge and a ride through beautiful Marin County. If 34 miles sounds a bit too much, then simply ride to the turn around point and jump on the ferry back to San Francisco. Or ride to when you feel you’ve had enough and turn back. It’s really that easy.
In keeping with The LAB Ride tradition, every rider must get donations from at least 10 sponsors. These sponsors may give any amount they desire in the form of a check, cash or electronic contribution. Cash and checks can be turned in during the check-in prior to the ride.
At the request of several people associated with The LAB Ride we have decided to add a “fun walk” portion to this year’s event. If bike riding is not your thing, but you still want to participate? No problem! Our start/finish is the perfect location for a fund raising “walk.” The same donation requirements are in effect for those who wish to walk.
Riders will receive refreshments at the turn around point, emergency support throughout the ride and a BBQ lunch at the end of the ride. If you are traveling to San Francisco and need a bike, please send us an email and we will help with arrangements.
The BBQ following the ride will be held from post ride (usually between 11:30-12:00) and 3:00 pm. Food will be served and any sponsors are welcome to join in the post ride fun.
