Important Update on Bike to Blue:
We have made the difficult decision to cancel this year’s Wellspring Ride for Cancer Support – Bike to Blue. Despite our best efforts, we were not able to recruit enough participants to make the event financially viable.
We hope to resurrect our highly popular, long, relay-type ride to an even more exciting destination for next year.
As always, we are grateful for those who support Wellspring through the Ride for Cancer Support. We look forward to sharing news of our next event with you soon.
Wellspring Ride for Cancer Support: Bike to Blue
The Wellspring Ride for Cancer Support is a unique cycling challenge in which teams of cyclists (pelotons) ride together in pace groups to raise funds to support those living with cancer. As part of the team, you will cycle over 120 km a day for three days, taking in Ontario's beauty on your way to the scenic Blue Mountains. As you end your journey on the banks of the Georgian Bay, a celebration with friends and family will be held to commemorate the end of another successful adventure.
Advanced training, some special gear (a road bicycle), and a big heart are all you need to be part of the next epic cycling adventure! But don't take our word for it, watch the video to hear from past riders about their experience.
All driving positions have been filled!
At Wellspring, you will find a range of programs designed to help provide connection and belonging, ease physical pain and emotional distress, build strength and mobility, and reduce fatigue. Specialized financial, workplace, counselling and other cancer-related supports are also available.
Wellspring programs are available across Canada online, and through centres in Ontario and Alberta, all at no charge, and without referral.
When is the ride?
Bike to Blue takes place on September 21-24 2023.
Where does the money I fundraise go?
Funds raised through the Wellspring Ride for Cancer Support will help provide the many supportive care programs and services offered at Wellspring, to help those living with cancer and their loved ones overcome the practical, emotional, physical and informational challenges that come with a diagnosis. Wellspring receives no government funding and is entirely supported by donors like you!
What is a Champion?
A Wellspring Champion is someone who is facing a cancer journey or who has survived the cancer experience. They motivate and encourage the Wellspring Ride for Cancer Support “Bike to Blue” ride teams, help raise funds, and spread the message about Wellspring throughout the ride.
