  • DAY 1!
    1 Aug 2021

    Today, we embark on another month of “riding and raising” for Sick Kids Foundation. Thank you all so much for participating!

    We are stoked to see so many returning names to this year's team roster, and a massive welcome to those who are new to #teamnielsens.

    With your help, we hope to reach our $20,000 fundraising goal and reach 15,000KM ridden as a team for 2021!

    MEDIA:

    We are lucky to have been featured on YourTV Muskoka - check out the video here which talks about this year's kick off to the GCC, along with a great article in The Bracebridge Examiner, linked below as well. Feel free to share to gain more awareness!

    GROUP RIDES:

    Where: Meet in the Bracebridge United Church Parking Lot, directly across from the bike shop. (Church Address 46 Dominion St)

    Groups: We will split the group if we have different speeds/experience levels, and we will be riding approx 30-35KM in distance.

    Route: Heading out down Beaumont to Alport and back, and then a loop of Santa’s Village to 118 and back into town.

    SWAG BAGS:

    Swag bags will be available for pickup as of Tuesday August 3rd at the shop. (Open 11am-6pm & group ride to follow). Feel free to take these with you after the group ride if you are attending.

    If posting any swag bag photos on social media, please tag our wonderful sponsors! (Katalyst Brewing, Momma Bears & Muskoka Bear Wear)

    Please do not hesitate to email us with any questions throughout the month, and we can’t wait to kick things off in just a few days.

  • Halfway through July!
    14 Jul 2021

    Hello All!

    We hope you are all enjoying your time on the bike as we prepare for August. We are putting together some swag bags for our team members, and this year the shop has decided to forego t-shirts and head straight into the sock game. Because, there's no such thing as too many socks. These socks are gifted to team members this year, as our token of appreciation for joining such an amazing cause.

    We are working on finalizing our swag bags and pickup date (within the first 10 days of August), as well as determining a few team ride dates!

    Share with your cycling friends, and let's build this team before August 1!

    - Char & Matt

    Halfway through July!
