1. Help your neighbors. Last year in Elgin-Middlesex 540 Local Patients were provided rides by our volunteer drivers through the Wheels of Hope Transportation Program.
2. Enjoy the ride. It’s a non-competitive ride, meaning it’s all about the camaraderie, sights and fun.
3. 1 in 5 cancer patients in Ontario have trouble getting to their lifesaving treatment appointments. Help them get there.
4. Be active. About one third or all cancers can be prevented by eating well, being active and maintain a healthy body weight.
5. 200,000 kms. This is how many kilometers 147 volunteers drove in Elgin-Middlesex in 2017 through the Wheels of Hope program. This is the equivalent of driving our cycling course 2,576 times.
Join our pack for a cycling adventure. Ride with us on August 25th in support of the Wheels of Hope Transportation Program.
This year offers participants a 60km, 30 km or 100 km country ride from London to Ingersoll and back. This non-competitive fun ride is all about getting out and getting active while helping our neighbours. If you chose you can ride to Ingersoll and you can have your own transportation back or we will return you to London. Route may be slightly altered on ride day due to any construction. We check the route often.
100 km route, there and back along same path. Main portion of 100km will be blue signs with yellow arrow
60km route will follow same path there and back, signs will be yellow with blue arrows
The cycling event will begin at London City Chrysler at the London Airport Auto Mall (Dundas between Veterans Memorial Parkway and Crumlin Side Road) and head east then south. The 100 km route heads east then north and connects up with the 60 km route at Gore Road. There is plenty of parking available at the dealership and on the street just North of the dealership.
Riders will be provided with snacks and water at the start, turn around and finish locations and the ride will be supported with volunteers cheering you on along the way. Post event lunch and celebration will be provided for all registered participants.
Helmets are mandatory for all participants regardless of age. Escort vehicles follow along to assist in case your legs wear out before your enthusiasm.
