RM 3 Ride Race Description

Bike ride starting in Historic downtown Waxhaw, NC.  The ride ventures into the country side of beautiful Union County where you will see farms, horses, cattle, goats and donkeys.  The rolling fields are beautiful in mid April.  At mile 14 you will pass by a wonderful vineyard on your left.  There is a treasure chest full of picturesque sights.  There will be an after party with music food and beer. This is a charity event with proceeds going to The Leukemia and Lymphoma Society and Bicycle Awareness.


RM3 is a Charity Bike Ride in Waxhaw NC for the benefit of the Leukemia and Lymphoma Society and Bicycle Awareness.  The ride honors the memory of Robb McNaughton and Stacy Stranick


Stacy lost her father to complications due to non Hodgkins Lymphoma the same cancer that took Robb's life.  Stacy was actively involved in the promotion and development of the first RM3.  She was committed to making RM3 a success our inaugural year and pledged to help even more in years to come.  Stacy was tragically killed by an inattentive motorist in 2018 weeks after riding in RM3.  Stacy was a ray of sunshine who loved her husband, family and her cycling community.  We will honor Stacy with a section of the ride called Stacy's Sprint.  A portion of the proceeds will also benefit Bicycle Advocacy.



The Leukemia and Lymphoma Society (LLS) has announced an upcoming charity bike ride in association with RM3 Ride. A charity fitness ride – RM3 Ride – will raise money to help those who are battling Blood Cancers.
There is a huge need to help cancer patients to receive benefits and funding through their most difficult health challenge. Simple financial resource assistance is a huge concern for many cancer patients and LLS is there to help.
Fortunately, with fundraisers like RM3 Ride LLS is able to supplement many services including research in many life saving programs.
RM3 is preparing for its second annual event this year,” stated James Allison, founder of the Ride and the best friend of Robb McNaughton III (RM3), who is a cancer victim and the namesake of RM3. He shared that “Everyone knows someone who is effected by cancer. But it is only when I lost someone very close to me that I decided to stand up and make a difference.  I may only make a small difference but every small amount adds up to the lives of someone diagnosed with cancer and I plan to make every effort to end all blood cancers”.
Riders may register online for RM3, to be held on Saturday, April 13th, 2019 at 8:00 AM, by visiting www.rm3ride.com to register. Donations and “virtual rider” registrations are also encouraged and accepted on the website or by e-mailing rm3ride@gmail.com for more information on direct donations.
The registration fee is $50 and includes a free T-shirt (t-shirt offer ends 3/01). Additionally, everyone is encouraged to attend the Silent Auction on March 28that Dreamchasers Brewery in Waxhaw from 7:00 PM to 10:00.  Dreamchasers has generously donated $1.00 per beer sold that night to LLS.
The 100-KM bike ride (with shorter distances of 35 miles) takes place on the beautiful country roads of Union County. The ride is supported by the Waxhaw Police Department and the Union County Sherif with SAG support for any mechanical issue.  Three rest stops will refresh cyclists and a lunch and beer (over 21) will be provided at the finish along with other entertainment and programs. Additionally, $10.00 photos, massages, and chiropractic care will be offered after the ride.. Friends and neighbors are also encouraged to participate as virtual riders and to cheer along the route. Come join in the fun for a great cause!
The goal is for 500 riders to participate in the event for 2019 and for local sponsors, donors and volunteers to both enjoy the ride and develop lasting relationships with the annual event.
