Q&A

I want to help, but don’t want to ride a bike. What can I do?

We’re so grateful! There are a few ways you can be part of B2B and help us continue to enrich the lives of older men and women through fitness!

No matter how you choose to get involved, you’re making a difference. Thank you!

Where does the ride start?

The ride starts on the beautiful waterfront at Heritage Park in Barrie, ON. A bus will transport you from Baycrest on Sunday, September 16 to the start of the ride. Click here for routes.

How does my bike get to the start of the ride?

The day before the ride, you can drop your bike off at our drop-off location and we will transport your bike to the start of the ride. Your bike will be waiting for you.

Will the ride take place if it rains?

Yes! Rain or shine, together we ride!

Can I register the day of the ride?

Yes you can. But registering in advance gives you more time to reach your minimum fundraising goal!

How do I fundraise online?

It’s never been easier! After you register, log into your fundraising page. From there, you can send emails to your friends and family. You’ll find recruitment, donation request and thank you email templates that will link directly back to your personal donation page.

How do I collect offline donations/pledges?

Your supporters can donate using cash, cheques or credit card. Simply download the fundraising form and use it to record your sponsors’ information. Once you’re finished fundraising, you can submit the offline donations/pledges by mail or in person to:

Team and Couple Registrations

Note: Unfortunately, we are unable to offer a discounted minimum fundraising amount for families that include parents, siblings and/or children at different addresses. Should you wish to register family, select the Team Registration option and the minimum fundraising level will be determined by the number of team members x their individual age category.

Can I change my route distance?

Yes, at any time! Just give us a call and we’d be happy to change your route distance.

Types of donations/sponsorship

Registration type and minimum fundraising amount

A fundraising minimum is established for each B2B participant based on the fundraising type selected. Riders are required to meet their fundraising minimum in order to participate in the B2B event. Participants who have not reached their fundraising minimum before September 10th, 2017 are asked to make a self-donation. Self-Sponsors will receive a split tax receipt unless total donations from Public Sponsors exceed the fundraising minimum. For a split receipt, the CRA allows Baycrest to issue a receipt for the value of the donation, less the value of the benefits that you will receive as a rider (as indicated in the value of the benefits chart).A fundraising minimum is established for each B2B participant based on the fundraising type selected.
