Participants will ride up Cypress Mountain beginning at the junction of Cypress Bowl Road and Cypress Lane and finishing at the Cypress Mountain Lodge. Again this year there will be two rides, one on the 17 km road (course map) and another on the 11 km BLT mountain bike trail, a medium grade logging road with some steep sections, (course map). (To see a video of this trail, click here.)
The registration fee is $50 for early bird registration received on or before May 23rd and $60 after May 23rd. Participants are asked to raise a suggested minimum of $100 in pledges. Tax receipts are issued for pledges of $30 or more. (Riders must be 13 or older.)
Join family and friends for an Event Expo and a free pancake breakfast at Cypress Mountain Lodge from 9:30 until 11:30 am. You will have an opportunity to speak with North Shore Rescue volunteers and inspect their vehicles and rescue equipment. You can also enjoy a massage or get official individual and team photos taken.
Bring cash to buy raffle tickets for prizes such as Arc’Teryx jackets. See the Rotary Ride for Rescue Facebook page for information about the prizes.
100% of the funds raised through pledges and rider registrations will support North Shore Rescue and other Rotary humanitarian projects. North Shore Rescue offers a variety of search and rescue services at no charge including mountain search and rescue; helicopter rescue; and public education.
