Thank you for your support of CMHA’s Ride Don’t Hide event.
In 2017, Ride Don’t Hide raised $1.6M to support the resiliency and recovery of individuals experiencing mental illness. This could not have happened without the support of thousands of Canadians who participated from Newfoundland and Labrador to British Columbia. They cycled in plain sight to put an end to the stigma of mental illness. They rode to raise funds for mental health programs and services in their communities.
When we hide, mental health stays hidden. When we ride, we create change. This year, on June 24, ride in plain sight. Ride Don’t Hide. It’s more than the name of the event. It’s also the reason we’re riding. Be part of something bigger.
ABOUT OUR RIDE: This is a family friendly event and is suitable for all riders. We start at the CN Centre on Ospika Blvd, and riders can choose from 6km, 15km, 30km or 50km rides. The 30km and 50km rides involve steeper hills and are for the more advanced riders.
Our event includes Kids Zone Activities, Health Fair, RCMP Register a Bike Program, Guest Speakers and a BBQ by donation.
