EDM's most revered BBC 1 tastemaker, Pete Tong put his physical strength and stamina to the test over the weekend for a wonderful cause. The internationally-renowned DJ embarked on 500+ mile bike ride from Los Angeles to San Francisco, California in order to raise awareness for childhood cancer in partnership with the Pablove Foundation.

Hear it from the legend himself with this special note he wrote to his fans and the entire EDM community...

"MONDAY 5th October - Today I join Pablove Across America peloton on a monster ride from LOS ANGELES to SAN FRANCISCO as we fight childhood cancer with love, one pedal stroke at a time. We'll no doubt encounter rain, wind, traffic, and hills along the way, but nothing we face will compare to the hardship pediatric cancer kids and their families endure every day.

I have been training and building up my bike " legs" as much as possible between Dj'ing and family holidays hitting the hills in IBIZA, ITALY, LONDON, Washington DC & home base in LOS ANGELES. I love cycling and have riden some decent distances before but never on the level for 7 consecutive days.

I'll also be working on some mixes and playlists for the ride and will post our progress on @petetong on Twitter and Pete Tong Official Instagram

Its going to be an amazing experience and its all for a very worthy cause.

Every dollar you give gets me closer to completing this ride and funding The Pablove Foundation's mission to fund pediatric cancer research and advances in treatment, educate and empower cancer families, and improve the quality of life for children living with cancer through arts programs.

Kids get cancer, too, and it's up to people like you and me to make a difference. To help, DONATE NOW on this page.

Or you can mail a check to:

The Pablove Foundation
6607 West Sunset Blvd.
Los Angeles, CA 90028

Be sure to include a note with my name and I'll be that much closer to my goal. Thanks for your support!
