History and Photo Gallery


The first Wellspring Peloton Challenge took place in 2012 from Toronto to Austin, Texas and the following year (2013), 24 dedicated riders once again cycled to Austin, Texas.

 

Then in 2014 and 2015, the riders went from Toronto to New Orleans, Louisiana. Also, in 2015, the Wellspring Peloton Experience, a 1-day cycling event with 60km and 110km options, was introduced for those to experience the first leg of the Wellspring Peloton Challenge. 

 

In 2016, a new destination was selected with the the riders going from Toronto to Miami, Florida. The riders were set to return to Miami in 2017, however, due to Hurricane Irma, the ride was rerouted to Austin, Texas.

 

The event has raised over 2.6 million since its' inception in support of programs and services at Wellspring for people living with cancer, and those who care for them in the Greater Toronto Area.
