Your Big Ride

A rich part of the Waterloo Cycling Clubs history is a Big Ride. A Saturday ride, near the end of the road cycling season, to celebrate the great cycling we’ve all done through the summer and to raise money for a local cause.

If you ride on the road with WCC this event will be Your Big Ride! There are three distances to challenge you: 100km, 160km and 215km.

The Cause

The Waterloo Cycling Club is thrilled to partner with Alzheimer Society Waterloo Wellington. Alzheimer’s has touched many of us and the Society provides services to people living with dementia, and their families. The funds we collect will enable many people in our region to take part in the awesome Minds in Motion program! In 2018 we enabled over 40 people to participate in this program.

With three distances in 2019 we have set an ambitious fundraising goal is $15,000!
