Event Description

Imagine you’re riding down the Gardiner Expressway and Don Valley Parkway in Toronto. There’s not a vehicle in sight and all you can see are 15,000 other Riders around you. You’re pedaling away, faster and faster as you think about how great it felt to beat your fundraising goal and how great it is to help us continue the life-saving work that creates more survivors. As you finish your epic route, you feel completely alive!

Once again this is your chance to ride traffic- free on the Gardiner Expressway and the Don Valley Parkway. I have created a Beaches Cycling Club team, and will be riding the 75 km. route.

As in previous years those interested in riding to the CNE for the 6 a.m. start, we will meet at the Tim Horton's at Lakeshore and Leslie for a 5 a.m. departure.

The past few years the weather has not cooperated with us and saw a smaller turnout than in previous years, so let's show our team spirit while supporting a great cause.

2017 marks the 30th anniversary of this ride.

 Go to the registration page, under Groups click on Join a Group and search for the group or team name Beaches Cycling Club.

Hope the weather cooperates and look forward to seeing the BCC gang.
