A Note from our Founder

Mark Griffith

Mark Griffith

Duane. It’s been 18 years since my brother died of cancer at too young an age. The following year I put purpose to my cycling and founded the Skinny Tire Festival. Many of you are returning cyclists, some from the very first year when we had 12 people and raised $2500. Thank you!  Since that time, you’ve contributed over $6 million to cancer research and a variety of survivorship programs in an effort to make a difference for those in the cancer situation.

And I know many of you have someone in your life, perhaps it’s you, with a cancer story.

I invite you to join me.

Ride your bike through the amazing landscape of Moab where one’s soul comes out to play.

Be inspired by the views that makes one feel empowered and insignificant at the same time.

Join me as we celebrate Life and the Sport of Road Cycling.
