26 cyclists and 22 drivers have embarked on an epic 8-day cycling adventure covering over 4,000 km to raise funds to support Wellspring. The cyclists will ride in pelotons (teams), for six hours, and cover more than 150 km/day, keeping wheels on the ground 24 hours a day, until they reach Las Vegas on September 29.
Upon arrival in Las Vegas, the cyclists will be greeted by their family, friends and a team of Wellspring Warriors – individuals who are currently or have gone through the cancer journey and serve as daily inspiration for the cyclists.
What is The Peloton Challenge?
It's an epic life adventure, an adrenaline kick, it’s friends for life and it's the thrilling challenge of the body, of the mind and of the spirit, all coming together to achieve a milestone. Completing The Peloton Challenge is an impressive accomplishment that only a few have the privilege of boasting, and it is an inspiring story of being able to help support those most in need.
What The Peloton Challenge is not, is another typical group charity ride. Instead, it's a unique cycling challenge in which teams of cyclists (pelotons) ride together for six hours at a time, travelling distances between 120-150 km for 8 days, to travel more than 3500 km to raise funds to support those living with cancer.
And only 30 riders will get this opportunity to change their lives and the lives of someone living with cancer.
Advanced training, some special gear (a bicycle), and a big heart are all you need to be part of the next epic cycling adventure that will take you from Toronto to Las Vegas.
