Local charity, You Are Not Alone (YANA) is excited to be working on the 2013 Simon’s Cycles YANA Ride.

“This is a new partnership for us, we are delighted that Simon’s Cycles are working with us to continue the legacy started by Les Black from Black’s Cycle in 2008,” says Marcie Dumais, YANA executive director.

She continues, “We love that Patti and Simon are helping to develop this event, they really appreciate that fitness and fun are crucial to happy family life which seems the perfect way to approach this fundraiser.”

“We have a lot of work to do between now and ride day. We are currently finalizing the routes and aim to have a variety of terrain and challenges while showcasing the beauty our community has to offer,” adds Patti Fletcher, co-owner of Simon’s Cycles.

“We will continue to offer cyclists the choice of distance they ride for YANA, be it 100km, 50km, or 25km. We’re planning a single loop for the 100km so cyclists can enjoy a gorgeous ride through all three communities as well as the regional district.”

The event will be supported with rest stops along the routes and promises more fun for all ages back at Marina Park after the ride.

Fletcher continues, “Of course we’re keen to have the whole family come out and join us on the day regardless of age and ability, we will host a 5km family ride as well as a much shorter run bike race to engage all those cyclists not yet using pedals.

The Simon’s Cycles YANA Ride takes place on Aug. 18. For more information, or to join the ride visit www.yanacomoxvalley.com.
