Cancer Journeys Foundation King & Queen of the Mountain Competition | The 2020 Edition
2019 marked the 7th edition of the King and Queen of the Mountain (KOM / QOM) cycling awards at Jeremiah Bishop's Alpine Loop Gran Fondo in Harrisonburg, Virginia.
Every September we sponsor the Alpine Loop Gran Fondo with Jeremiah and Erin Bishop. 500+ cyclists descend on the Shenandoah Valley to test themselves against some of West Virginia's most challenging hills and Virginia's legendary Reddish Knob, which is a virtual copy of one of the three routes to the top of the iconic Mount Ventoux in France.
We love awarding these jerseys because the winners demonstrate the #NeverGiveUp! spirit that cancer survivors need to have on their cancer journeys. The Alpine Loop Gran Fondo also is one of our best fundraising programs and generates several thousand dollars each year to support cancer survivors.

Not everyone can make it to Virginia so we're considering establishing regional competitions using Strava.com!
Basic Rules: Register below to compete in one of our six Strava segments. You may enter multiple segments and complete the segment as many times as you'd like, in order to earn your best time. The male and female winners of each Strava-based cycling age group will receive a Cancer Journeys Foundation KOM or QOM jersey and a hometown press release! We will also be sending out a special Lanterne Rouge award in the spirit of #NeverGivingUp!
