BEING TOGETHER IS THE RIDE

For two unforgettable days, June 11-12, The Ride will celebrate our 15th year of contributing to life-changing cancer research. It’s also when we all switch gears from a virtual event to the in-person epic past Riders have come to know and love.

Once again, our 200+KM route will be filled with determined cyclists of all kinds, cheering supporters, and an overwhelming sense of comradery and community. Thanks to you, we’ve raised $230 million for cancer research, helping millions of people in Canada and around the world.

But the journey isn’t over.

The pandemic has changed the way we bring back our in-person event and safety is our top priority. Our COVID Safety Plan will be updated with the most current information available.

HERE ARE YOUR ROUTE OPTIONS FOR 2022:

2-DAY TORONTO TO NIAGARA

Raise at least $3,000 to Ride 
This is “The Epic ride” that takes you over 200km from Toronto to Niagara with overnight camping in Hamilton at McMaster University. You’ll finish in front of a cheering crowd at the scenic Niagara Falls on day two. 

See tentative Day 1 and Day 2 routes.

1-DAY TORONTO TO HAMILTON

Raise at least $2,500 to Ride* 
Experience the electric atmosphere of The Ride and take advantage of all the camp amenities after your ride. Then get free transportation back to Toronto after the camp festivities end on day one.

See tentative 1 Day route.

THE HAMMER

Raise at least $4,000 to Ride 
For those wanting an extra challenge in both fundraising and from The Ride itself, you can go an extra 60km on Day 1 (for a total of 160km/100 miles) from Toronto to Hamilton. Plus, enjoy a half-way point premium lunch experience and you’ll earn the awesome Hammer cycling vest sponsored by The Carpenters Union.  

See tentative Hammer Route.

RIDE YOUR WAY

Ride as far as you want, wherever you want. You can be part of the Ride community from anywhere in Canada — or the world! Choose your own route and ride where you’re most comfortable, we'll be with you in spirit. This option has no minimum fundraising but raising $1,500 will get you the official Ride jersey.

EPIC IS BACK IN 2022.
