The fundraiser is in memory of Barrett Cummings, the grandfather of ride founder and WKU student, Tyler Jury of Elizabethtown.
The group hopes to raise $75,000 to benefit the Greater Kentucky/Southern Indiana chapter of the Alzheimer's Association, and to increase local, state, and national awareness of the disease.
In late May, the students will ride about 3,200 miles from Oceanside, California to Yorktown, Virginia.
In addition to Jury, local riders include Mitchell White of Bowling Green.
