More than 100 bike riders Sunday morning took to the streets to raise money for cancer research. The bike tour was organized by the Lauri Strauss Leukemia Foundation, which has been raising money for cancer research since 1987. The Ride for Research tour offered two routes - either 6.8 or 4.3 miles - through the Port Washington area.
