About The Ride

June 8-9, 2013. Riding throughout Ontario's picturesque countryside in two days. 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 Enbridge Ride to Conquer Cancer® is for anyone who wants to challenge themselves for a great cause. All you need is motivation, a bike and a helmet.

In 2013, we are offering multiple route options to encourage people to participate and challenge Riders in search of a bolder experience. So choose the best route and distance for you.

The money you raise for The Enbridge Ride to Conquer Cancer will benefit The Campbell Family Institute at The Princess Margaret, one of the top 5 cancer research centres in the world. YOUR epic ride will move us closer to our vision to Conquer Cancer In Our Lifetime.


To provide even more people the opportunity to experience this life-changing event, we’re growing and expanding in 2013!
