Ride founder Mitch Flynn addressed a joyous crowd at the end of the ride.

"It looks like we're dead on with last year, which is $4.5 million (raised)," Flynn said. "That's great, isn't it?"

The cumulative total raised over the years now tops $38 million.

Proceeds from the Ride for Roswell are earmarked for research and patient care at the Roswell Park Cancer Institute.
