B2B Riders Are Building Baycrest in 2018!

In 2018 Baycrest celebrates 100 years and the B2B is making an historic contribution! All funds raised will go towards building the new state of the art health and wellness centre at Baycrest. The first of its kind in Canada, the Kimel Family Centre for Brain Health and Wellness will be located on-site in the Terraces-Wagman Centre complex. It will integrate brain health, physical fitness, nutrition and social engagement for older adults – everything the B2B has raised funds for these past 22 years!

A built-in research component will produce evidence-based programs. The Wellness Centre will have the tools and resources that are necessary to completely change the way we age with a focus on therapeutic fitness. Any breakthroughs made at the Wellness Centre will be shared with our network, improving the way people age on a global scale.

Classes, programs and social opportunities go a long way in helping older adults stay healthy, mentally sharp and vibrant. The Wellness Centre will increase vital resources for aging adults, marrying customized seniors’ programming with research and clinical care

Ride with and for your community, and help us build Baycrest into its next 100 years! Be part of an important future and join the best and most successful Ride in the GTA today.

The Most Successful Community Ride in Ontario!
  • Most Scenic routes (50km/100km)

This truly is YOUR Ride!

Stan’s Club is Building Baycrest too!

All fund raised by all Stan’s Club Members this year will be directed to the ”Stan’s Gym” Campaign to raise $1 million to name the fitness centre within the Kimel Family Brain Health and Wellness Centre in the B2B Founder’s name, Stan Feldman. Stan, one of the Founders of the B2B has always been the ‘heart of the ride’ and the man who focused all of our attention on improving the lives of the older men and women in our community that Baycrest serves in so many ways with a special emphasis on the silver bullet that fitness represents in terms of improving lives and adding ‘years to life and life to years’.

For more information on the Stan’s Gym tribute campaign, please go to Stan’s Gym website.

 

stanStan’s Club Members pledge to donate and or raise a minimum of $10,000, taking a leadership role in advancing the brain health and wellness of seniors everywhere.

This year they will be building a state of the art fitness centre and paying tribute to the man that made this ride happen

Join this leadership group by making your Stan’s Club Pledge when you register or by emailing Brian Dunphy (bdunphy@baycrest.org) today!

Smitten with coastal riding? Then say buongiorno (good morning) to Puglia, your beautiful new seaside paramour, featuring sun-soaked villages, glorious secular olive groves, delicious all-organic food and mile upon mile of soul-stirring biking. After an intimate dinner at a 12thC castle, an exclusive guided walking tour of Baroque Lecce, a visit to the UNESCO-protected trulli and a glass (or two) of prosecco in the shadow of a famous cathedral, you’ll receive the experience you seek—and then some.

(WINNER: Andrew Reiken)


prize-piemonte

“All-Rider” Eligible Prize Courtesy of Butterfield & Robinson (Riders get an addition ballot to win for every increment of $500 raised over their minimum!)

Burgundy is vintage B&R territory—a place renowned for its culinary traditions, celebrated wines and rich history. With our European headquarters based in Beaune, Burgundy for us is literally home territory. Thousands of miles of peaceful, paved roads await your exploration, and our guides are well acquainted with how best to stay off the beaten track when traversing this stunningly varied landscape. We’ll lead you to the top of the gorgeous Hautes Côtes, uncork the splendid vintages from French wine’s ancestral home, and bed down some of the region’s most characteristic hotels, including the delightful Castel Tres Girard in the heart of the Côte de Nuits.
