A bicycle ride that raises funds for sarcoma cancer research at the University of Iowa is returning with a bigger event than ever this August after a virtual ride was held last year.

The 17th annual Courage Ride takes place on Saturday, August 14th with two rides that will traverse through Washington County starting and ending in the cities of Washington and Iowa City. The ride was founded by Riverside residents Tom and Jackie Bailey, whose son Seth passed away after a battle with sarcoma in 2003. The event has been held in various locations around Washington County, and this will be the first year the ride uses the Kewash Nature Trail, just before the eastern portion is closed for a resurfacing on August 16th.
