Cape Fear cyclists got it in gear to help fight breast cancer Sunday. The Cape Fear Cyclists Bicycling Club held its first Can Bike Fundraiser at Blue Clay Bike Park. Riders of all ages participated in the mountain bike event. While there were 11 competitive classes, organizers say the start of the day had special meaning for everyone involved. “The most important part though is the in honor of lap, or the in memory of lap that we're starting off with. And that's for people that don't want to compete, they just want to come out and support it,” said Jay Pearce, Can Bike organizer. All the proceeds from the event will benefit New Hanover Regionals Pink Ribbon Project. The project provides comfort bags to breast cancer patients and helps provide free mammograms for uninsured women through the Coastal Care van. Pearce said they hoped to raise $5,000 for the cause.
