The  Manteca Presbyterian Church will be hosting a group of 25 bicyclists from Austin, Texas, tonight during their stop-over in the Family City on their way to Anchorage, Alaska.

This is the third year the Texas 4000 for Cancer bicyclists have stopped in Manteca, and the first time they will be giving a program at Manteca Presbyterian Church which will start at 7 p.m.

A small group of bicyclists also will be at Big Dan’s Neighborhood Diner in Lathrop to give the same program which will also begin at 7 p.m.

Both the Manteca and Lathrop presentations, which are open to the public, will focus on the group’s fund-raising efforts to fight cancer as well as to share some cancer-prevention wisdom.

“Manteca Presbyterian Church is pleased to host this group of fine young people for dinner and breakfast every year in early July.  They are an inspiration to all as they travel through the Western U.S.,” a church spokesperson said.

The Texas 400 for Cancer is comprised of some 50 college-age bicyclists who started the nearly 5,000-mile bike trek in June in Austin, Texas. Half of the group is making its way to Anchorage, Alaska, by way of the Rocky Mountains route. The group that’s stopping over in Manteca is taking the Coastal route to the 49th state.

The Manteca Presbyterian Church, formerly known as the Valley Community Presbyterian Church, is located at 275 North Main Street on the corner of North Street.
