Obliteride Fundraiser Bicycle Ride to Cross MI on Sunday, Aug 14

This weekend the Obliteride fund-raising bicycle ride rolls through Mercer Island on Sunday, August 14. About 500 participants are navigating routes ranging from 10-150 miles around Lake Washington and beyond, with a portion of the 50-mile race option traversing the Island (see map).

Every dollar raised from the event benefits the globally-recognized Fred Hutchinson Cancer Research Center, whose mission is the elimination of cancer and related diseases as causes of human suffering and death. Home to three Nobel laureates and interdisciplinary teams of world-renowned scientists, the "Hutch" is a global leader in research to prevent, detect and treat cancer and other life-threatening diseases.
 
Residents will encounter bicyclists after about 10:30am on Sunday along East and West Mercer Ways, and are asked to accommodate the event; riders must follow all traffic laws.
