The Ride to Con­quer Cancer draws a large num­ber of par­tic­i­pants in four prov­inces each sum­mer. Rid­ers range in abil­i­ties, but share the drive to raise funds for a cause, cancer re­seach, that means so much to so many. Que­bec’s event is smaller and younger than Toronto’s, and gives par­tic­i­pants a chance to do a pointto-point ride start­ing in Mon­treal. Camp is set up (tents, food, mu­sic and mas­sages are pro­vided) in Trois-rivières, giv­ing ev­ery­one a spot to rest be­fore set­ting off on Day 2 of the ride to the fin­ish in Saint-au­gustin-deDes­mau­res. The Ride also has events in B.C. and Al­berta.
