Two professional cyclists plan to chase down as many El Tour de Tucson cyclists as possible in order to raise money for a non profit organization advocating for cyclist safety.

Travis McCabe and Eric Marcotte will be the last cyclists to roll through the starting line of Saturday’s El tour de Tucson and attempt to pass as many cyclists as possible before they finish the ride more than 100 miles later.

McCabe and Marcotte are looking for pledges to benefit the advocacy organization Look! Save a Life, which was started by Brendan Lyons.

Last year only about 1,600 cyclists finished the 100+ mile version, but in years past the number of cyclists in the 100 mile version has been closer to 3,000.

The pledges are on a per cyclist passed basis.

Check out the pledge site to learn more about the program and make your own pledge.
