About the Ride

Velo4Yellow is now going into our 7th successful year and with that we are extremely happy to announce our partnership with the Kay Yow Cancer Fund for 2018.  With the support of the Velo4Yellow community, we’ve contributed $40,000 to LiveStrong.  We expect 2018 to be our best year ever.  Help make our 7th Annual Ride a huge success and join us on Saturday, June 9th at the Wake Forest Carolina Ale House.

This year we have added a new 5/10 mile course for those who feel that the longer distances may be too big a challenge. We continue to offer 33, 63 and 100 mile routes as well. So, whether you are a greenway rider or racer, a weekend warrior or hard-core roadie, there's a distance for you.

Ride along North Carolina's scenic country roads in Northern Wake, Granville, Person, Durham and Vance counties. Enjoy the ride with stocked rest stops, SAG vehicles and mechanical support. A buffet lunch provided by Carolina Ale House accompanied by live music will make for a festive post ride party!

All riders are expected to follow the rules of the road. HELMETS ARE REQUIRED!

Why We Ride

We are proud to partner with the following cancer charity organizations.

Kay Yow Cancer Fund


For our 7th annual ride we are inviting the cycling community to partner with us in the fight against cancer, with 1 in 3 in our community affected by this deadly disease. Success is greatly increased with individual fundraising by our riders! You will receive rewards  based on your donation. (Click on My Fundraising Tools for instructions on how to set up your fundraising page).  We ask, but do not require, riders attempt to meet the initial $100 incentive level but welcome those who are motivated to raise more for the fight.

Looking for even more excitement?

As if the 100 and 63 mile courses weren't challenging enough, we have added a Strava segment for each course. 1st and 2nd place finishers on each segment will be awarded prizes at the end of the ride. Signs will be posted on both routes showing the start and end of each segment. Just show us your time for that particular segment and we will add you to a running tally of other riders to see who will take the prize. So, let the competition begin!
