The only bike ride for breast cancer in Atlanta, YSC Tour de Pink is the fastest growing charity cycling event in the metro area. Take part in routes from 1 to 100 miles, exploring the northern suburbs as we ride to fight breast cancer in young women. Bring your family and experience our community expo, featuring entertainment, food and more! YSC Tour de Pink Atlanta is more than an event with cyclists. It’s a chance to honor survivors, raise local awareness and support important Atlanta programs for young women with breast cancer.

What is YSC Tour de Pink Atlanta?As Atlanta’s only bike ride for breast cancer, participants enjoy the opportunity to ride from 1 to 100 miles in the Northern suburbs.  The inaugural ride in 2009 saw over 350 registered riders and raised almost $150,000 for local programs. This year promises to be bigger and better, from short family rides and a survivor loop to professionally designed routes for the more expert cyclist.  We’ve even added an opportunity for walkers to join us on our short route!

Who is YSC?Young Survival Coalition Atlanta is the oldest and largest affiliate of YSC, ensuring no young woman faces breast cancer alone.
