The Lymphomaniacs hit a record as membership climbed to 130 riders for the 2018 Scenic Shore 150 Bike Tour. With 80 returning riders and 48 first-time Lymphomaniacs we're ready to ride and raise more than $120,000 for blood cancer research and patient services! Want to ride with us? Send a message via our Contact Form. The Lymphomaniacs can offer FREE registration to new and returning riders...a $100 savings!
The Lymphomaniacs start training for Scenic Shore in the February chill with 8 weekly classes at the wonderful Flyght Cycle. Before getting outside for training rides in April, we hold our annual Fundraising & Hands-on Tire Changing Clinic. Then we hit the beautiful county roads of Wisconsin for our team training rides. With a focus on "coffee shop touring" we follow pretty roads and watch the crops as they grow from seedlings to ready to harvest. Watch our 19-minute video to see how much fun we have. Come join us in 2018!
The 2017 Scenic Shore 150 Bike Tour is done and it was a fantastic event! The weather cooperated this year and allowed everyone to enjoy two days of biking. The Lymphomaniacs and our corporate partner, Team Forte of Forte Research Systems, raised a combined total, as of this writing, of $125,542! Thank you to all our supporters for your generous donations. The money will save lives through research and patient services.
We can't wait to ride again in 2018 at the 26th Annual Scenic Shore 150! Maybe you will join us!
The Lymphomaniacs and our partner Team Forte have raised over $100,000 for the Leukemia & Lymphoma Society! This fun and hard working team of 120 riders continues to raise money to save lives.

As of January 9, the team has 85 riders registered for the 25th Annual Scenic Shore 150 Bike Tour. This puts us way ahead of 2016 -- 66 had signed up by this date last year.
A special welcome goes out to our 19 new Scenic Shore riders! We love first-time Scenic Shore riders and are very happy to have them on the team.
And, welcome back to our 66 returning riders! That's a return rate, so far, of 82%.
Finally, we have 36 returning Sprinters (raised $1,000 or more) from 2016! Our Sprinters raised almost $64,000 of the $83,500 total last year.
As we head into the new season and towards our $100,000 goal, remember that the support from our donors is helping to save lives and improve the quality of life for blood cancer patients.

Post ride at UW Manitowoc, we gather in our BELIEVE t-shirts. The names of our honorees are on the back...we ride for them.
Lymphomaniacs teammate Kathie Smith-Zaremba passed away Sunday, June 19, 2016 from a very aggressive cancer she discovered in May. We will miss her smile, sense of humor, intelligence, and friendliness. Kathie was a strong rider and successful fundraiser for blood cancer research.
The 2016 Lymphomaniacs extend our prayers and thoughts to Kathie's family and friends.
Kathie's family suggests donations to The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society. Please consider a donation via her Scenic Shore 150 fundraising page as a good way to honor her memory. Donate HERE
As a team we dedicate our 150-mile ride to her.
The 2016 BELIEVE T-shirts and Lymphomaniac blood-drop helmet toppers are available to order for Lymphomaniac team members.
The BELIEVE T-shirts show our commitment to the mission of finding cures for blood cancers. We also honor those for whom we are riding by listing their names on the back. Lymphomaniacs wear these shirts at our team tent in Manitowoc at the end of day one.
The exclusive blood-drop helmet toppers, uniquely identify our riders at Lymphomaniacs. These easy to attach toppers show our team identity and help us find fellow teammates on the road.
Order your BELIEVE T-shirt by the July 1 deadline. Toppers can be purchased up to ride day though quantities are limited.
