We are pleased to announce that for the second consecutive year, Think Communications (a local Enterprise IT and Cloud Solution Provider) will be the presenting sponsor of the Cycle of Life Tour on July 22nd and 23rd. Registration opens on Friday, February 10th. The annual two-day group cycling fundraiser has raised more than $365,000 for hospice care on Vancouver Island.
Registration for the fifth annual Cycle of Life Tour opens on Friday, February 10 and there are only 80 spots available. This much-loved event sells out every year so interested riders are encouraged to register at www.cycleoflifetour.ca. On Saturday, July 22nd, riders will embark on an unforgettable two-day cycle tour through the beautiful Saanich Inlet, Cowichan Valley and Gulf Islands. The route covers close to 200 kilometers and includes camping overnight on Salt Spring Island.
To participate, cyclists must commit to raising a minimum of $500 in pledges for their local hospice. There are ten hospice societies on the island including Victoria, Salt Spring Island, Sooke, Cowichan Valley, Nanaimo, Oceanside, Alberni Valley, Pacific Rim, Campbell River and Comox Valley.
More sponsorship opportunities are available. Thanks to our generous sponsors, every dollar raised by our riders will stay on Vancouver Island to support local hospices.
We would like to thank the Oceanside Wheelers team for all of their hard-work and support last year!
