The Texas 4000 For Cancer is the longest annual charity bike

of Texas and cyclists from around the state who train, raise funds,
educate, and bring hope to those with cancer by raising money for
cancer research. The Atlas ride brought together cyclists from
across the state to support the 2012 team on the first day of their
journey to Alaska.
