Bike enthusiasts took on 28 miles to fight a deadly affliction.

Nearly thirty bikers took on the course through Parkersburg in hopes to raise money and awareness to fight cancer.

This is the second year for bike for the cure with all proceeds going to Wood County's relay for life event.

Bike for a cure chairwoman, Kristine Green, says it's a project that's close to her heart.

"Probably everyone in the listening area has been touched one way or another by cancer. I know I certainly have. I lost my dad in 2009, lost my mom in June of last year. Cancer is a disease that we have to find a cure for so that these wonderful people don't keep dying. And that's one of the main reasons we do this event," says Green.

Biking for a cure also doubled as training for the Regional Community Emergency Response Team.
