UPDATE: January 29, 2021
2021 is gearing up and it's time to save the date for this year's Cycle of Life Tour! Please mark your calendar for July 24, 2021.
Thank you for your patience as we work behind the scenes to plan for this coming year. I would also like to thank you for your amazing support last year. Because of you, your local hospice was able to continue providing compassionate care for patients and families during an especially difficult year.
Our team is working on some exciting ideas to ensure this incredible community of riders stays connected and pedaling for hospice care. This year will most likely look different than the traditional event, but our fingers are crossed that we will get to ride together in some way.
Hospice care is more important than ever and we hope you will continue riding with us to the finish line in 2021.
What will happen to the funds I have already raised?
The money you raised in 2020 has been carried forward towards your 2021 fundraising goal. However, the actual dollars have already been distributed to each local hospice to provide care and comfort for patients and families in need.
Do I need to register for the Tour again this year?
No, your registration has been carried forward and you are automatically registered in the 2021 Cycle of Life Tour! If you signed up as a virtual rider in 2020, you will be considered a virtual rider again this year. If you would like to be added to the wait-list for the ride on the July 2021 weekend, please call 250-213-9863.
Can I start fundraising for 2021?
Yes! Vancouver Island hospices need your support now more than ever. The fundrasising site is open and your fundraising page will remain the same for 2021. Your 2020 fundraising has been rolled over into this year's goal, so simply set your 2021 goal and start fundraising!
Please ensure you continue to follow all Provincial Health Officer regulations and social distancing protocols with any fundraising events or rides.
How do I submit cash or cheque pledges?
Please mail or drop-off a completed pledge form, along with the payment to Victoria Hospice (address on pledge sheet). Please do not mail cash. If you have cash, please write a cheque to cover the amount and include with a completed pledge form.
I have a friend who wants to join the Tour, is there room for them to sign up now?
All our spots for the 2021 weekend ride are currently full, pending plans for 2021, however we have an unlimited number of spots for virtual riders! Virtual riders can join at any time, to any team and are included in training rides and fundraising initiatives but are not eligible to join the group ride weekend in July 2021. If you would like to be added to the wait-list for the 2021 weekend ride, please call 250-213-9863.
What are the plans for this July?
Our team is working on some exciting ideas to ensure this incredible community of riders stays connected and pedaling for hospice care. This year will most likely look different than the traditional event, but our fingers are crossed that we will get to ride together in some way. Please stay connected on social media and Strava!
