The Great Bucket List Cycle is back in a whole new way! The event has been recalibrated and is going virtual to ensure everyone stays safe while still being able to participate. We can’t offer the full experience of past years’ events, however, we still wanted to provide you with the opportunity to challenge yourself, have fun and help Hospice!

The virtual ride will kick off on Saturday, September 19 and run until Saturday, September 26 allowing participants to meet their kilometre goals throughout the week. The event will include a Gran Fondo distance of 100 km, along with both a 70km and 40km option.

This event is for all levels of cyclists and ages – join as a whole family! Our goal is each cyclist either donating or raising at least $1/km. All proceeds raised go towards providing compassionate care through end-of-life at ARCH and supporting local families. All types of cyclists are welcome to join in – there are many beautiful, local trails for Mountain and Fat Bike riders!

General Information:

ARCH will be using Strava to provide predetermined routes for riders as well as PDF maps, but riders can also choose to do their own route. Riders are encouraged to track their results on Strava, or another tracking app that can be shared on both their personal and ARCH Hospice’s Facebook and Instagram – we’d love to share your story! ARCH encourages as many cyclists to participate on Saturday, September 19 on the traditional and scenic St Joseph Island route while ensuring the following are met: 

  • ONLY cycle with people in your household or social circle
  • For safety, please do NOT make plans to meet up with others that aren’t in your circle
  • If passing someone on the route, do it quickly but courteously! Passing someone on the route is not considered a close contact or a significant risk for exposure to COVID-19.
  • If you must be behind other cyclists, stay well back and try to stagger yourself.
  • If stopping on a trail or path be sure to pull over to the side so others have room to pass safely while maintaining a physical distance.
  • Consider changing your route or the time of day that you go out so that you can follow these guidelines.
  • It is important to remember that trails may be busier than usual, and as a rider, you must remember to yield to pedestrians/walkers
