Ride for Roswell will go on, rain or shine

This weekend’s 20th annual Ride for Roswell will go on, rain or shine.

Up to three inches of rain is forecast for the region Saturday, when approximately 8,000 people are expected to ride between 3 and 102 miles to raise money for Roswell Park Cancer Institute.
