We’re so grateful! There are a few ways you can be part of B2B and help us continue to enrich the lives of older men and women through fitness.
- MAKE A DONATION AND HELP BOOST OUR NUMBERS. If you want to make a donation to B2B without sponsoring a specific rider, click on the icon below. The money will be included in the total raised by the event, however your donation will not show up on an individual rider’s personal web page.
- SPONSOR A RIDER AND HELP THE RIDER REACH A PERSONAL GOAL. If you want to sponsor a specific rider, you can use the box below to search by rider name. Once you find the correct rider, you can sponsor the person directly. Your donation will show up in the rider’s personal fundraising totals.
- VOLUNTEER! You’ll be an important part of the Ride and help the event run smoothly.
No matter how you choose to get involved, you’re making a difference. Thank you!
The ride starts on the beautiful waterfront at Heritage Park in Barrie, ON. A bus will transport you from Baycrest on Sunday, September 8 to the start of the ride. CLICK HERE FOR ROUTES.
The day before the ride, you can drop your bike off at our drop-off location and we will transport your bike to the start of the ride. Your bike will be waiting for you.
Yes! Rain or shine, together we ride!
A B2B event jersey will be provided to you to wear during the ride. Please note that a helmet is mandatory, and must be worn at all times during the ride.
Yes you can. But registering in advance gives you more time to reach your minimum fundraising goal!
It’s never been easier! After you register, log into your fundraising page. From there, you can send emails to your friends and family. You’ll find recruitment, donation request and thank you email templates that will link directly back to your personal donation page.

Registration fees are not tax receiptable. However, donations made to the ride are, providing:
- The donation is $20 or greater.
- The tax receipt is being issued to the person who made the donation.
- The tax receipt information and donations are received within 60 days after the event with all donor contact information.
- All other CRA conditions are met.
Types of donations/sponsorship
- Self-Sponsor: A donation by the rider or his/her spouse towards reaching the rider’s fundraising goal.
- Public Sponsor: All other donations towards reaching the rider’s fundraising goal.
Registration type and minimum fundraising amount
A fundraising minimum is established for each B2B participant based on the fundraising type selected. Riders are required to meet their fundraising minimum in order to participate in the event. Participants who have not reached their fundraising minimum before September 8, 2019 are asked to make a self-donation.
Self-Sponsors will receive a split tax receipt unless total donations from Public Sponsors exceed the fundraising minimum. For a split receipt, the CRA allows Baycrest to issue a receipt for the value of the donation, less the value of the benefits that you will receive as a rider. Riders who make a donation to B2B are asked to only credit their donation to their own ride.
Tax receipts will be issued 45 days after the event.
