A new event goes live...
Ride for Recess now open« Back to Blogs
The inaugural Ride for Recess is now open for registrations and donations. It is a challenging ride, up the toughest hill in Vancouver, B.C. - Mount Seymour.
Ride for reason: Tillicum Elementary is an inner-city school located in Vancouver's East-side on Nanaimo street, near McGill street. The parents of Tillicum students, are raising funds towards building a new playground that can be enjoyed by the school children and the neighbourhood community.
The ride is only 12.5 km, but it is 1000m of steady climbing at a 7.5% grade. It will be a tough ride, but you will have the satisfaction of knowing you can ride up the mountain and that you helped make a lot of kids happy along the way.
All of the proceeds of the ride will be going towards building a new playground for some of the more deserving kids in our community at Tillicum Elementary school in East Vancouver. For more details about the event, please visit Ride for Recess.
