COVID-19 UPDATE: The safety and well-being of everyone in our Baycrest community is our first priority. This includes you, our event participants. The situation with COVID-19 is rapidly evolving and the Baycrest Foundation is closely monitoring the situation and reviewing all possible outcomes.
As more information arises, we may need to modify aspects of our event for the safety of all our participants, volunteers and supporters. We will keep you informed of any changes related to the event.
Thank you again for your understanding and support as we do our part to reduce the spread of COVID-19.
Choose From Three Ride Lengths
The 50km ride is a great beginner route that covers beautiful countryside and guarantees a fun and memorable experience for participants. This route will finish with lunch at Holland Marsh Winery, and you will take a coach bus to the Finish Line Carnival at Baycrest.
This route allows you to enjoy the full B2B experience without the difficulty of hills! This route will begin in Barrie and continue to Holland Marsh Winery. You will then travel by coach bus to Maple Downs and finish the ride with the 100 km riders at Baycrest.
The scenic 100km ride begins in Barrie and makes its way through the valleys and farmland north of Toronto. It’s a challenging and exhilarating course for recreational riders.
ABOUT THE RIDE
The B2B brings together an incredible group of riders who return to support our cause year after year. There is a real sense of community and friendship to the ride, with people establishing lifelong relationships (and potential cycling partners!) at each event.
This fully supported ride begins with a light breakfast and a coach bus trip to Barrie. Your bike will be waiting for you at the starting line upon arrival at beautiful Heritage Park. As you cycle your way back to Baycrest, you will ride through beautiful countryside roads and stop to refuel at our well-stocked rest stops, then break for lunch at Maple Downs before hitting the busy city streets. All the while, police escorts ride with you to keep you safe! The ride concludes with some family friendly festivities at the always popular finish line party.
Over the years, the B2B Ride has grown to include hundreds of participants who have raised more than $12.5 million! We continue riding to support Baycrest in its mission to ensure that older adults have the ability to keep moving, engage with others socially and remain independent. Our B2B co-founder, Stan Feldman, z”l, once said: “Ride Until You Can’t.” At Baycrest, we’ve added to that mantra, with: “Ride Because You Can!”
Join us for the 25th B2B Anniversary Ride on Sunday, September 13, 2020, and help us to Pedal Past Dementia!
