About the Big Ride

An amazing feat of endurance.

The BIG RIDE 2018

The BIG RIDE is one of Canada’s greatest celebrations of cycling on some of the world’s most scenic and challenging routes!

This year’s BIG RIDE theme ‘Cancer is a Mountain’ fittingly, will have riders take on the Austrian Alps in a 7-day cycling loop through Germany, Austria and Italy, and culminate with the Stelvio Pass – a 25 km, 48 switchback, and 1800m climb. Daily rides will range from 80-130km and feature light, moderate and steep climbs. 

Not for the faint-hearted, this year’s event will be epic, and so is our fundraising goal of $120,000 to go to the Dalhousie Medical Research Foundation (DMRF) to support cancer research in Atlantic Canada through the Beatrice Hunter Cancer Research Institute.
