We Will Get You Ready to Ride

Sign up for the Ride for Karen training program to get you ready to ride 160kms or 100kms.


160KM Century Ride

kids raceIn the longest course, cyclists will embark on a 160 km / 100 mile ride through the valleys and farmlands north of Toronto. While scenic, the 160 km ride is a difficult undertaking even for a seasoned cyclist and acts as a suitable metaphor for the strength that Karen showed in her tireless battle with Breast Cancer.
