Inspired by a dream of bikers in pink T-shirts, Shane Stanford started the "Ride for the Cure NM" event to raise money and awareness for cancer treatment and research. This year's event proceeds will benefit the UNM Cancer Center.

Shane spoke with Charles Maynard, KSFR-FM Santa Fe, about the event recently:

Both rides end in Madrid, where family-friendly festivities (open to the public) include a children's corner, live bands on 4 different stages, craft and vendor fair, and food. The festivities are free; the motorcycle ride is $20 and includes a rider's packet and a Sunday ride through the Sangre de Cristo mountains on March 30.
