We're all set for Saturday, May 27 at Kitsch Wines! Fundraisers will explore local wineries, distilleries & a cidery in support of Canucks Autism Network (CAN).

Rider Info Pack: Ride guidelines, suggested routes & more

The "DM Ride" is for cyclists of all abilities & non-cyclists too! This year, Wicked Tours is offering a shuttle for those who don't bike.

Most importantly, the event will help CAN support children, youth & adults on the autism spectrum in Kelowna!

The Stober Foundation will be doubling all donations up to $150k, so your fundraising efforts will go twice as far!
