"Ride For Hearing"

The Rotary Club of Vancouver's 35th Annual Bike-A-Thon will be held on Sunday July 14th, 2019.



Last year's ride raised over $156,000.  146 Riders and Participants joined us for a glorious day and a mountain of fun in Harrison Hot Springs.  Every year is another step forward as we help the development of new technologies, new clinical procedures, and teaching techniques.  

Our ride is 120km from Brentwood Town Centre to Harrison Hot Springs Resort.  We have 5 checkpoints along the way for refreshments, security cars en route in case anyone gets into difficulty, a repair van to assist with those inevitable blown tires and an enthusiastic welcoming committee at the Finish.  The resort spas are open for your enjoyment and the day is concluded with a delicious banquet and prizes galore.


Please Help Us Bring Back the Sounds of Life!


You can register for the Bike-A-Thon 2019 online at Register On-Line after January 1st, 2019.  Riders must be 13 years of age or older.  Helmets are required by law.  Online registration will require acceptance of the waiver plus your name, address, and email, banquet and transportation requirements.

After you register you will have a personal web page where you can monitor your progress, email friends for support and solicit new riders. Just Login here and enter your email address and password you created when you registered.

As a Donor, you can Pledge to a Rider On-Line

As a Rider you have two options:

     1. Register as an Individual Rider and ride the 120 km
     2. Register as a Member of a Team where each Member rides the full 120km
     or register as a Partnership Relay where each member rides a portion of the 120km.

Team members who decide to ride as a partnership relay are responsible for transportation of partnership relay team members and their bikes from checkpoint to checkpoint

Please note that this is a fundraiser in support of the Deaf and Hard of Hearing in BC. 

To participate, each individual Rider and each Team Member must raise a minimum of $300 in pledges


The ride begins at 6am from the Brentwood Town Centre at the corner of Lougheed Hwy and Willingdon in Burnaby.  Riders should arrive between 5:30 and 5:45 and proceed to the registration table to receive their rider number and 2 wristbands.  Please pin the number to the front of your shirt so it can be seen by the checkpoint volunteers.  One wristband is for you and has the phone number of our support team in case you get into difficulty.  The other is for your bicycle for security purposes. 

If you wish to have you ride timed, proceed to the timing chip table to retrieve your chip.  Assistants will help you fasten the chip to your bike.

Attendants will help you in parking your car in the appropriate area where they can be left all day.

Riders can expect to take about 1 hour to reach each checkpoint and most will arrive in Harrison by Noon.  Any riders not finished by 2pm will be picked up and driven the rest of the way to Harrison.

An experienced group monitors riders along the route keeping in touch by radio and assisting riders as necessary including help up and down Mount Woodside if required.

A bike repair van is on-call and medical assistance is available along the entire route.



Upon arrival in Harrison, riders can have a light lunch in the Lite Bite room. 

The Resort spa and pool facilities are available to all riders and their families.  Check the lobby signs for directions to the change rooms and the spas.  Pease do not leave clothes or valuables in the change rooms.  The rooms are not secure.
