Bicyclists took to the road Sunday to raise money for cancer research as part of PaceDay.
The bicycle ride featured about 500 riders, according to the Paceline website.
PaceDay had several different courses for riders. There was a closed one-mile course in downtown, and there were also open road events of 25, 50 and 70 miles. The event had a goal of $500,000.
Since 2019, Paceline has raised more than $1 million through PaceDay and has distributed that money in the form of grants to researchers at the Georgia Cancer Center.
Mike Adams has won numerous Georgia Press Association awards for photography. Subscribe to the Augusta Good News newsletter here.
