2021 Comox Bike Company YANA Ride
Bikes Will Keep Us Together….One Pedal at a Time
We thought we would be back to "normal" for 2021, but here we are, one year later. We'll keep moving forward together, one pedal at a time, until we see our way through to the other side of the pandemic.
The 2021 event will be a fully flexible ride! You decide when, where and how far you choose to ride, all while following the latest provincial guidelines. Registration is entirely by donation, and you collect donations to support your efforts or pledges per km or per minute towards the goal you set for yourself or your team.
Chart your own course and take some fun photos or videos along the way. No matter which way you flex your ride, you’re doing your part to raise funds and support YANA families!
Remember- If it has wheels and pedals, it’s perfect for this ride! Road bike, mountain bike, gravel bike, e-bike, trike, unicycle. Your ride, Your pace, Your way!!
- Registration by DONATION
- Fully Flexible Event- Ride WHEN, WHERE and WHAT you like

YANA (You Are Not Alone) is a registered charity available to Comox Valley families who need to travel for the medical care of a child under 19 or a pregnant mother. YANA offers accommodation and provides funding to help with expenses while families are away from home.
YANA was founded in 1986 by Sandra Williams after the financial and emotional devastation resulting from her daughter’s diagnosis of congenital heart failure and lengthy medical treatment in Vancouver. Sandra and her family committed to building an organization that ensured Comox Valley families would have the support of their community during these stressful circumstances.
YANA is proud to be the steward of Sandra’s legacy and assists with an average of 400-500 medical trips each year, supporting hundreds of children and families.
Every dollar raised in the community goes to help provide financial support and accommodation to Comox Valley families who need to travel to access medical care for a child or pregnant mother.
$50 = 1 night stay at a YANA apartment in Vancouver near BC Children’s Hospital
$100 = 1 night stay near Nanaimo Hospital
$200 = YANA envelope of cash for family’s emergency hospital transfer
$400 = 2 weeks stay at Jeneece Place in Victoria
$1000 = 1 month travel expense funding for a family away from home
Thank you for your donation in support of Comox valley families..
