High fiber ain’t just for all us old people! Young women with a high fiber diet have a lower incidence of breast cancer. I know many of us struggle to figure out what constitutes a healthy diet. Many times a study is published that exalts something like “dark chocolate is good for you”, only to disprove or cast doubt on it the very next week. Figuring out what to eat and in what quantities is usually a struggle for most of us. If you are like me, I know Continue reading →
As with each one of my seven 3Day walks, I could not have made it without my amazing team sherpas and walker stalkers who cheered us on every step of the way. Day 1 We started Day 1 at the Opening Ceremonies at the Del Mar Fairgrounds and walked down the coast through Del Mar Village. I knew this was walk was going to give me a run for my money, as I got a blister on mile two. We continued through Del Mar for three more miles Continue reading →
This is a recap of Michelle’s 3 Day SGK walk, why she did it, and how she started The Boob Ride Pennsylvania. In August of 2014, I found a large lump in my right breast. I had already had breast cancer 7 years prior and had clean mammograms every year – It didn’t even cross my mind that this could be a cancerous tumor. That month and the tumor grew to over 9cm and was extremely painful. I spent months in treatment and several surgeries Continue reading →
We are so excited to announce that our PA Boob Ride director is taking part in her first Susan G. Komen 3 Day 60 mile walk this weekend (Oct 2nd-4th). Michelle is a second time survivor of breast cancer and she is quite the inspiration. This has been a year of firsts for Michelle, as she held the first ever Boob Ride in Pennsylvania in July as well as a several other fundraisers for her team. In addition to her fundraising efforts, Michelle has been recognized Continue reading →
In 2015, The Boob Ride added the Pink Bra, aka the Maglia Rosa. This newly and highly coveted award is for women only (sorry fellas)! This award is given to the Best Woman overall on the D-Cup route. While purely a popularity contest, the Maglia Rosa is still quite the award. Our first winner was Kim Froeschner. She tried to take it home with her, but we reeled it back in until the perpetual trophy is made. Here she is winning the inaugural Maglia Rosa. A Continue reading →
The most coveted award in all of cycling is the yellow jersey in the Tour de France. Well, it was until The Boob Ride started awarding the Yellow Bra. This sexy thing is awarded to the person that appears to have arrived first on the D-cup 90 mile route. While The Boob Ride is not a race, many people vie for this award every year The real yellow jersey is awarded to the rider in the Tour de France with the fastest time after 21 Continue reading →
The King of the Mountain (KOM) trophy is sponsored by Benjies, a New York style deli in Tustin. The deli’s owner, Lloyd Weinstein, has supported The Boob Ride every year as a participant. He cannot make the event this year and desperatly wants to have his name on one of the trophies. This is the only way Lloyd will get his name on a KOM trophy. King of The Mountains The King of the Mountain award in grand tours like the Tour de France is given to the Continue reading →
The Boob Ride has another big supporter with the TriClub San Diego. We were graciously invited to present our 2015 event at their monthly meeting. Our San Diego specialist, Anna, gave the presentation to over 100 members. Mike Plumb, President of the Triathlon Club of San Diego kept his hands off the bra, but he is definitely a big supporter of the cause. This trophy is for “The Most Supportive Club or Organization” and it is a double DD bra with a back-up support bra to Continue reading →
The Best Young Rider award for The Boob Ride is a white training bra. In the Tour de France, the Best Young Rider is awarded for the fastest time by a cyclist who is under 26 years old. They give the jersey out on a daily basis to the person with the lowest amount of time. This means the jersey will often move from rider to rider during the race until the final day. The fastest time on the last day by a rider under Continue reading →

The Boob Ride has officially added a start in Solana Beach for the 2015 ride. Over the years we have had many folks from the North San Diego County area join us for the ride and post-ride party. So, we added an official starting event there. The ride will start in the Distillery parking lot at 7:00 am on 4/18/15. There are 3 routes ranging from 30 – 90 miles. The 60 and 90 mile route will meet the Orange County riders at Las Pulgas. The big Continue reading →
The Boob Ride has completed our transformation from Biking4Boobs to officially be branded as “The Boob Ride”. The last five years we ran our operations under the name Biking4Boobs, but as we grew and the event developed it’s own personality, we realized a few things: Someone has a trademark on “Biking4Boobs” and we would eventually run into trademark infringement issues. A local group had been selling clothing that was branded “Biking4Boobs”, which created confusion with our effort. Most importantly, nearly everyone on the ride called Continue reading →

This is a simple award to win, get everyone on your group to register under the team name. The most people under one name wins. The first two years have gone to OCCyclist as Continue reading →
