Spirit of Hope

July 3 – 5, 2024

Spirit of Hope, now in its 5th year, is a fantastic cycling fundraiser that gives you a taste of a long distance, fully supported ride specifically curated for beginners and intermediates.

This year, Spirit of Hope ventures east to ride through the picturesque landscape of Lake of the Woods, Ontario. The meticulously planned, looped routes, from Kenora to Minaki, Rushing River Provincial Park, and Reddit Ontario, promise challenging terrain and spectacular scenery. As you pedal through lush Boreal forests, rugged Canadian Shield, and serene lakeshores, you will be making an impact one pedal stroke at a time.

This incredible cycling event includes nourishing meals, comfortable accommodations, and a dedicated support team, so your focus remains on the ride while contributing to a meaningful cause. Embrace the challenge, become part of a community, and make a difference. 

We are also looking for volunteers to sign up as support team member on this three-day excursion. There is NO registration fee for volunteers. Volunteers are encouraged to fundraise and suggest a minimum of $250 for those new to the event. For returning support volunteers, please set the minimum higher: $500, $1,000, or more!

Registration fee per cyclist: $499

Registration rebates will be issued in December, based on individual fundraising above the minimum commitment.
