Important information for all riders:
Bike drop off will take place the day before the event at the Halifax Forum Multi-Purpose Centre. This is mandatory for all riders as bikes will be transported ahead of time and safely stored inside on our new bike racks – awaiting their owner’s arrival at their individual start locations on the morning of the event.
Like previous years, all participants will arrive at LED Roadway & Lighting parking lot for our Opening Ceremonies on September 28 and will be bused to their individual start locations.
This years, 100, 130, and 160km riders will start at the Bayview Community School in Mahone Bay.
Pit stops will be located every 20-25km along the route – along with roving medical and mechanical support on the trail and road.
Please invite your family and friends to join us in celebrating your epic finish and the incredible impact we have made together on cancer care for Atlantic Canadian patients and their families.
Please check back frequently for updates. All times are subject to change, and any scheduling information changes will be communicated via email to all riders ahead of time.
