Our ragtag group of higher education professionals and friends has combined to form a super team of cancer-fighting cyclists riding in Pelotonia, all the way from Athens, Georgia (and points beyond).
We are a team of twelve strong Georgia residents and friends committed to ending cancer. We’ll be representing Georgia as we each cycle 180 or 200 miles this August in Pelotonia, in honor and memory of friends affected by the disease. (Though, full disclosure: we now have teammates from North Carolina, Vermont, and Rhode Island, too!)
Each of us rides for their own reasons, but fundamentally, we’ve all been affected tremendously by cancer. While we might not have the ability to step into a lab to conduct research ourselves, we are certain of two things in the fight against cancer: we love the freedom of cycling, and we can count on the support of our families, friends, and colleagues.
Our peloton, participating in our fifth Pelotonia, has raised over $100,000 in the last four years. Every single penny of every single dollar donated on behalf of our rides will go to cancer research. Any donations above our individual fundraising commitments will be shared among our team as we reach our final goal.
In 2019, The Midnight Train is proud to be officially sponsored by two amazing companies. Our members depend upon these products to help us through our long training season. We recommend you check them out and absolutely give them a try! And know we're always happy to lend our endorsement of both Zealios and Nuun because they're with us on every ride, run, and visit to the gym.
Sun and skin protection second to none. We never roll out without sunscreen & chamois cream. #teamzealios
