  • Group Ride
    4 Aug 2020

    Hey Team GraysonStrong!

    Some of our teammates suggested a group ride with our team so let's do it!

    I created an Event on the Group Rides section of this website and it includes all the details below.

    We would like to include as many teammates as possible and make it enjoyable for everyone interested regardless of skill/fitness level. Therefore the group ride will be approximately 15 km and fairly flat. If you would like to continue riding after the group ride you are of course welcome to continue!

    We will start at the John Rhodes Community Centre at 5pm and end there likely around 6/630pm. We will head west on the Hub Trail and continue to the turn-around at the end of Canal Drive and return. Due to the construction on Bay St, we will have to ride on Queen St. and Wellington St for a short distance, however I am hoping traffic is quiet Sunday evening.

    Please wear a bright blue or orange shirt or both colours, as they are the Great Cycle Challenge colours this year.

    Hope to see you there!

    This August, GraysonStrong is taking part in the Great Cycle Challenge to fight kids' cancer!

    Why? Because right now, over 1,400 children are diagnosed with cancer every year, and it's the biggest killer of children from disease in Canada.

    Kids should be living life, not fighting for it.

    So we are raising funds through our challenge to help these kids and support SickKids Foundation to allow them to continue their work in developing treatments and finding a cure for childhood cancer.

    Please support us by making a donation to give these kids the brighter futures they deserve.

    Your support will change little lives.

    Thank you.
