The Eighter from Decatur Bicycle Rally is a charity bicycle ride that benefits Raquel's Wings for Life, an organization that flies local cancer patients to MD Anderson in Houston, Texas, for treatment free of charge to the patient. This event is a fun-filled, family-friendly ride designed to get our participants out of the city to enjoy the back-country roads of Wise and Montague counties, all while raising money for a worthwhile cause. The countryside is beautiful, the roads are good, the people are friendly, and the after-rally meal is free! Come join us for a great rally and fun day!
