Great prizes will be given to the individuals and teams who raise the most in pledges. There will also be prizes to participants with the fastest times. Past prizes have included helicopter rides, hotel stays in Whistler, luxury dining experiences, etc. 

Tax receipts are issued for pledges of $30 or more. 


This year we are once again excited to partner with British Pacific Properties for a post-ride celebration at the awe-inspiring Cypress Pop-Up Village. This public gathering space brings the convenience of a park with a food vendor, bike wash and repair, an amazing view as well as local art.

After reaching the finish line at the Nordic area, enjoy a coffee and warm up before heading down* to the Cypress Pop-Up Village for a free pancake and sausage breakfast. Invite your family and friends for the prize announcements, complimentary food and beverages and to celebrate your accomplishment with you and fellow riders.

*A complimentary shuttle from the Nordic Area finish line to the Pop-Up Village will be available. When registering, please let us know if you think you will use these services.

Location Details
Cypress Pop-Up Village is located at McGavin Field (located between Mulgrave School and Cypress Lookout). If you decide to leave your car at Mulgrave school it is a very quick 5-minute ride down to your car after the event. A bike valet service will be available at the popup village starting at 10:00am on the event day.

“For 7 years now I have participated as a mountain biker in the Rotary Ride for Rescue. I am passionate about supporting local organizations like the North Shore Rescue. I can’t think of a better way to donate to North Shore Rescue who put in countless and selfless hours rescuing people in trouble in the mountains.”
