Mission


The Tour de Rio Blanco was founded by Dr. Steve Alley. An avid cyclist, he has spent many years riding through the Blanco Canyon area near Crosbyton, Texas. The ride was created to share this scenic region with other cyclists.

His wife, Kay, is a breast cancer survivor. She is the inspiration for the ride's dedication to breast cancer research. Each year we have been able to make a great donation, and we will continue to do so with every successful ride.

Breast cancer is the primary cause of cancer-related death among women between the ages of 20 and 59. In 2016 it is estimated that there will be 307,660 new cases of breast cancer among women and 2,600 new cases among men in the U.S. The warning signs may differ between individuals, so it is important to be aware of the possible symptoms.
