The Canary Challenge is a fully-supported cycling event. Riders help raise funds and awareness for the Stanford Cancer Institute.
Your ride will begin and end at the VMware headquarters in Palo Alto. The Canary Challenge Village will be your gathering place to check-in, eat, grab your goodie bag, visit booths, valet your bike (when you finish) and have fun. We’ll provide breakfast and lunch at the Village. There will be rest stops along the routes to refuel your body, fill your water bottles and, should you need it, provide repair for your bicycle or medical care. Bike techs will be available to keep you and your bike in great condition!
