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.

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 toStan’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

Announcing the 2018 Grand Prizes!

Stan’s Club Luxury Trip Grand Prize

Tuscany (Valued at $13,990 CDN)

Tuscany Trip Prize

A Butterfield & Robinson Adventure like no other…

This 5 Star Luxury Adventure for 2 will take you to one of Italy’s most beautiful and beloved regions, Tuscany has earned every accolade and exaltation bestowed upon it. While some come for the sun and to be seen, we’ve got better plans: sumptuous spreads laid out by close friends, behind-the-scenes tours of medieval towns, wine tastings with award-winning oenologists, and spectacular biking through picturesque hills. As much as we appreciate the comfort of its fine hotels, it’s the rustic charms that capture our imagination. Tuscany is magical. Believe the hype.

Open to all Stan’s Club members who hit that minimum. Roughly a 1 in 20 chance of winning!


Puglia Trip Winner Congratulations to the 2017 winner, Elayne Freeman who wrote us during her 5 Star trip to Puglia on the Adriatic saying, “We’re having the trip of a lifetime in Puglia. B&R has become the gold standard of biking outfits for a good reason!”

All-Rider Oenology Adventure Prize

Burgundy (Valued at $10,760 CDN)

Tuscany Trip Prize

Butterfield and Robinson’s Home Turf: Burgundy, France will be yours to discover.

For those whose evenings are woefully incomplete without a well selected vintage, Burgundy is hallowed ground. This region has been whetting its palate since the Roman era, and is mouth watering proof that practice makes perfect. So naturally, it’s B&R’s first love—and second home. Stay in our pied-a-terre in historic Beaune and try our signature pairings: like cycling through verdant Cote de Nuits and dining at the Michelin-starred Le Montrachet, enjoying garden picnics and Butterfield’s own wine, or biodynamic wines.

Open to All Riders who hit their minimum, apart from Team fundraising! Get an extra ballot for every increment of $500 over your minimum!


Congratulations to the 2017 All Rider Prize Winner, Andy Reiken who described his trip as, “Awesome and perfectly planned. It is French wine country the way it was meant to be seen- picturesque does not describe well-enough what is around every bend. Thank you B2B and B & R!”
