The bike check will be held from 9:30-10 a.m. followed by the group ride from 10-11 a.m. Then it will the barbecue (hot dogs and hamburgers) and awarding of door prizes.

It all happens at the corner of Tsolum River and Nelson roads.

Those under 18 must have a parent fill out a release liability waiver (unless there is proof of Cycling BC insurance).

CVCC registration will be available at the event.
