This year, with Canada turn­ing 150 years old, a cross-coun­try trip might be ap­pro­pri­ate. The Sears Na­tional Kids Cancer Ride takes rid­ers from Van­cou­ver to Hal­i­fax in 17 days in Septem­ber. Spa­ces fill up quickly for the ride, which makes stops in com­mu­ni­ties along the way, in­clud­ing at seven pe­di­atric on­col­ogy cen­tres. Am­bas­sadors are part of the team go­ing the full dis­tance, each rid­ing about 150 km and 220 km per day, but more cy­clists can sign up to take part in shorter seg­ments start­ing and fin­ish­ing in ma­jor cities.
