How We Support You
BEFORE THE RIDE
Most likely you’re not used to riding such a distance in one day, then waking up the next morning and doing it all over again. So we’ll help you get ready to do just that! We organize training rides and provide orientation sessions where you’ll learn more about bike basics in case you’ve never changed a bike tire or want to know the difference between a road and a mountain bike. And last but not least, you can always call the Ride Guides at 1-866-996-8356.
Whether this is your first time fundraising, or you’re a seasoned pro, we’ll help you reach and exceed your goals. From your own fundraising webpage to personal advice, we’ll be there for you the whole way.
ON THE ROAD
Your safety is our #1 priority. Every detail of the event is studied and executed with the greatest of care – we don’t take chances when it comes to your safety. To ensure that safety is at the forefront of your mind, as well as ours, all participants attend a mandatory safety video presentation that is informative, inspiring and thorough.
You’ll never be too far from medical attention at any point along the route should you need it. We have an incredible team of volunteer doctors and other medical professionals at camp and pit stops along the route. No matter what, you’re always cared for throughout the event.
PIT STOPS ALONG THE WAY
Out on the road, regular pit stops line the route every 25-30 kilometres, stocked with water, sports drinks, high-energy snacks and other helpful supplies to keep you going as you ride to conquer cancer. Toilet facilities are provided at start, camp, finish and at all pit stops.
We’ll transport your luggage to camp, leaving you free to focus on your journey. Just drop off your gear at the specially marked trucks on Saturday morning and pick it back up at camp that night. It’s that simple!
After a long day’s adventure, you’ll settle into your comfortable, Ride-provided tent. You’ll be sharing this tent with a fellow Rider and will be asked to pick your tentmate during the online check-in process closer to the event. But before you hit the hay, you can enjoy all the amenities available in your new home away from home, including hot showers, catered dinner and an evening of entertainment. You’ll also have free access to medical attention and massage services.
