Since I was a boy, cycling has been a big part of my life. I think of bicycles as a force for good... a timeless means of transportation, making new friends, discovering new places, and practicing a healthier lifestyle. By its very nature, Paceline is encouraging people from all parts of the community to do something meaningful by riding a bike. Together we can cure cancer faster.


James Holmes

Vice President

My father-in-law and grandfather both passed from cancer, and my wife and I have lost friends and know many others who continue to fight. In Georgia, nearly 140 people are diagnosed, and 50 people pass each day due to this indiscriminate disease. Paceline Ride funds the critical research being done at the Georgia Cancer Center, and together, we'll cure cancer faster.


Cayla Long

Project Lead

I have watched many friends, and family members face their own journey with cancer. It is never easy, but having a support system can make all the difference. Paceline mimics this as we are all coming together to support the Georgia Cancer Center. Through Paceline, I know that each day I am working to make a difference for researchers, doctors, and cancer patients. 


Degan Cheek

Communications Lead

I feel very privileged to spread the mission of Paceline. I believe what we are doing will lead to more significant cancer outcomes for many people in our community, state, and world. It's easy to see, especially from our collective experience over the past few years, that investing in our health is essential. With Paceline, I am proud to support the thought leaders, researchers, and scientists that are going to cure cancer faster.



Don Belisle

Partnerships Lead

Like many of us, I've lost far too many family members and friends to cancer. That's why I channel every ounce of energy and passion each day into finding a cure. Being part of Paceline helps me support critical research at the Georgia Cancer Center that will make a difference!



Dag Grantham

Chairman and Founder

I ride to service others. To be a part of something bigger than myself. To raise funds for researchers at the Georgia Cancer Center to advance a cure. I hope my ride will encourage others to ride/volunteer because we can cure cancer faster together!
