As you pedal towards your final ride in the 2020-2021 Cycle of Life Tour, you can feel proud knowing that you have made a big difference for hospice patients and families on Vancouver Island. We may not be riding all together, but the compassionate, caring and generous spirit of this amazing group of cyclists can be felt up and down the island.
Your Final Ride Challenge
It's time to see how far we can ride together! Whether you are taking on 50km, 100km or 200km, every kilometer counts as part of this incredible community. While July 24 is the official ride day, we know it's been an unusual year, so please feel free to complete your final ride whenever works for you.
After completing your final personal challenge, please submit your ride details here by July 30. Submitting your ride will enter you in the draw for a chance to win an amazing door prize!
Remember to stay safe, keep fueled and hydrated, and email photos from your ride to email@example.com
