Ride with purpose. Ride as one.

November 1-2, 2019

Lowvelo is no ordinary bike ride. Rather, it's a bold idea to pull the entire state together to raise funds for cancer research at a level that’s never been tried before in South Carolina.

100 percent of every rider-raised dollar goes directly to life-saving cancer research at Hollings Cancer Center, Medical University of South Carolina.

"It's not a race. You don’t need a fancy bike or have to be in the best shape. It's a community experience of building partnerships to attain health and achieve the unimaginable - a cancer-free world for our kids and their kids."

- Hollings Cancer Center Director Gustavo Leone, Ph.D.
