The origins of B2B
In 1995, Stan and Susan Feldman met Larry Saltsman and Michelle Lavine on a bike trip through the French countryside. After their return to Canada, they decided to ride together again – but this time, they would do it to raise funds for an organization they love: Baycrest. Over a two-day period, they rode 250 kilometres from Bala to Toronto and raised $5,000. The Bike for Baycrest idea took off, and they enlisted Jonathan Feldman to be a founding member of the Barrie to Baycrest organizers’ group. In 1996 riders raised about $45,000.
Over the years B2B Ride has grown, and hundreds of participants have raised more than $13 million!
