"Bike For Kam" rolls through the Central Coast

Posted: Updated:

A swarm of blue-shirted cyclists are riding down the Pacific Coast Highway this week.

The annual "Bike for Kam" event kicked off a few days ago. Eight cyclists left San Francisco on Saturday with a seven day ride ahead of them, trekking nearly 500 miles to Los Angeles. 

Kam Redlawsk was diagnosed with a rare debilitating muscular disorder in her early 20s called hereditary inclusion body myopathies (HIBM). The group "Bike for Kam" rides to raise funds and awareness for those afflicted with the same disorder.

Even though this is the sixth year of the event, this year is special for one reason.

"One of my friends, Marcum, he custom built the rig and this is the first year that we're doing it that I'm riding along with them on the PCH," said Kam Redlawsk. 

Each day the group rides 60-to-100 miles before stopping for the night to camp. 

The cyclists are nearing the halfway point in their journey as they end Thursday's ride in Pismo Beach.
