For its fifth edition, the event has been moved to mid-summer – almost precisely at the halfway point of our hot and sunny season – from July 18 to 20, 2014. Cyclists of all experience levels will come together to ride for the cause of sick and underprivileged children and also, to get the younger generation moving! First and foremost, the event is a donation drive for three organisations that work with children: the CHU Sainte-Justine Foundation, the Grand défi Pierre Lavoie and the Tremblant Foundation. Since its inception, the 24h of Cycling has raised more than $1.8 million for the beneficiary organisations.
An offshoot of Tremblant’s 24h of Skiing, the relay bicycle challenge is accessible to participants of all ages, from the very young to seasoned cyclists and people who ride for pleasure. In teams of 6 to 12 participants, cyclists may register for one of three categories, depending on which experience best suits them: for the cause, for fun or for the challenge.
The only prerequisites are that participants be active-minded and enjoy cycling. Each may ride at their own pace. Join us for this event where your effort makes a real difference for children and where everyone who takes part enjoys the ride on Circuit Mont Tremblant, a superbly maintained race circuit that features some incredibly majestic scenery.
Together for the children
Whether you’re a participant, a donor or a spectator, you will be able to put faces to the beneficiary organisations and better understand the real impact of your involvement. All of the teams are symbolically paired with one of the nine sponsored children who represent the beneficiaries. Come meet Marine, Emile, Kloé, Alexis, Maëlle, Xavier, Nathan, Julien and Anakin… and learn more about these children, who benefit from this fundraising event.
What if you can’t participate?
Support the cause and promote it! You might have friends, neighbours or co-workers who enjoy cycling and would like to make a difference in the lives of thousands of children.
