Wellspring Ride for Cancer Support 2020

If you are longing for a Canadian adventure, a unique cycling challenge, and the opportunity to make a difference in the lives of people living with cancer, then the 2020 Wellspring Ride for Cancer Support (aka Wellspring Peloton Challenge) is for you!

Teams of up to 30 lucky cyclists ride together in pelotons (teams), relay-style for 8 days and 7 nights to complete a distance journey to some exciting destination.

Held annually since 2012, the Peloton Challenge has raised more than $3.1 million for Wellspring Cancer Support Foundation. The funds are used to provide life-enhancing programs and services for cancer patients, their family members and those who care for them. Every year the event serves up a new adventure destination. Previous Rides have ended in Austin, New Orleans, Miami and Las Vegas. In 2020 the Wellspring Ride for Cancer Support will head across Canada to the Maritimes.

Key Facts:

  • This is not just another group charity cycling event. It is an epic adventure and a unique cycling challenge.
  • Each cyclist is committed to raising a minimum of $10,000 for the Wellspring Cancer Support Foundation.
  • Wellspring Friends of the Peloton supporters have donated money to help the cyclists reach their fundraising goals. Grants of up to $2,500 per cyclist are already in place. We also have past cyclists, drivers and supporters who are looking to provide support to other cyclists in need. Bottom line: we can help you fundraise.
  • Each peloton team cycles for six hours, covering a distance of up to 150 km each day. Over the next 24 hours, they then travel to their next anticipated relay point. At the end of the journey, the cyclists are greeting at their destination by Wellspring Warriors – people who are currently living with cancer who serve as the inspiration and motivation for our cyclists along the journey. Together, the cyclists, the volunteers, the warriors and the cyclists’ families come together to celebrate the success of the ride, enjoy their host destination and honour those who have been, and will be, impacted by cancer.
