VanCycle joined the Ride to Conquer Cancer during its first day of the ride on June 18th. We helped provide mechanical support to all the riders who raised $11.1 million for cancer research and support. Getting up at 3:15am wasn’t very fun, but it was great to see all the riders getting ready for their big ride. We were impressed by the spirit and determination of the riders: riding in the rain, climbing up those hills, and getting up the next day to do it all again! We hope to see you out their next year!

From The Ride website:
“Right now, 2 in 5 people will hear the words: “You have cancer” in their lifetime.
The money you raise for The Ride to Conquer Cancer will benefit BC Cancer Foundation and support leading clinicians, scientists, and researchers whose search for new discoveries and improved patient outcomes will have a real impact in our communities throughout the province, across Canada, and around the world. In other words, your participation will accelerate the conquest of cancer.”
