Tanya’s Ride For Brain Injury October 1st
Tanya’s charity ride in support of the Brain Injury Society of Toronto (“BIST”) is being held this year at Albion Hills on Saturday October 2nd. There will be three challenging routes in the beautiful rolling hills of Caledon including a gravel option for those who like to get dirty. The ride will be followed by a tasty light meal.
For those of you who didn’t know Tanya, she was an enthusiastic member of VCC and a leading fundraiser for the Tour for Kids. Tragically, Tanya passed away last year after struggling with a serious brain injury incurred in a cycling accident in 2014.
VCC will be covering the costs for this event, including funding from the grant received from the provincial government, but it is a fundraising event for a very important and unfortunately high risk area for the sport that we all love. As with prior years we are setting the minimum donation at $100 with 100% of the funds going to BIST. To assist in the ease of the event BIST has set up a Race Roster registration site which will include all the choices you need to make. As such we will move away from our usual VCC calendar feature.
Ride choices :
Road (Tempo) – +/- 70 km starting at 11am (27-29km avg)
Road (Social) – +/- 55 km starting at 11am (27-29km avg)
Gravel – +/- 80 km starting at 11am (gravel paced 😊)
Please note that the permit does not allow us to offer a mountain bike option.
Going forward we will be posting the actual routes.
