About The Ride
The 2016 EnbridgeŽ Ride to Conquer CancerŽ is an EPIC, two-day cycling event spanning over 200 kilometres throughout Ontario’s picturesque countryside. Sure, it sounds like a lot — and it’s meant to be. But make no mistake, this event isn't just for athletes or cycling enthusiasts. The Ride is for anyone who wants to challenge themselves for a great cause. All you need is motivation, a bike and a helmet. Join us on June 11-12, 2016 for the Ride of your life!
You can also call our Ride Guides at 877-699-2453 [BIKE] with any additional questions.
Dollars at Work
Since 2008, The Enbridge Ride to Conquer CancerŽ has raised over $138 million for the Princess Margaret Cancer Centre and currently is Canada’s largest cycling fundraiser. Funds raised through The Ride support Personalized Cancer Medicine, including research, treatment advances, education and new standards of care at Princess Margaret Cancer Centre. Princess Margaret Cancer Centre is one of the world’s top 5 cancer centres and is a leader in Personalized Cancer Medicine.
Personalized Cancer Medicine is a multi-faceted, integrated approach to cancer care that focuses on the unique nature of each patient. Because every patient is unique, every patient’s cancer is different. Funds raised through The Ride are enabling the researchers, scientists and doctors at Princess Margaret Cancer Centre to better understand the unique genes of each cancer and each patient, which are leading to more effective, targeted and less toxic treatments for cancer patients in Ontario and around the world.
