Registration & fundraising

hm-ride-2018-cyclist.jpgHeld on Saturday, September 18, join a community of Okanagan cyclists and ride for a cause!

Registration
is $150 per person.

Once registered, we encourage cyclists to begin fundraising! Ask friends, family and coworkers to support your campaign.

Win exclusive fundraising prizes. And this year, your efforts will go twice as far. Thanks to Stober Foundation, funds raised will be generously matched!

All donations made are eligible for a tax receipt. The registration fee is not eligible for a tax receipt.


The ride

Explore Kelowna’s best wineries. This year, riders can choose however many wineries they'd like to visit -- you decide the length of your route!

With eight participating wineries, your ride can be as short as 5km, as long as 40km and everywhere in between!

hm-ride-two-ladies.jpgAll riders will start at Kitsch Wines (3330 Neil Road, Kelowna). Start times will begin at 2:00pm and every 15 mins thereafter.

  • Individuals or teams of up to 8 receive a map with the locations of each participating winery. 
  • Win exclusive prizes! Riders will receive a prize draw token for each:
         1) winery you visit,
         2) challenge you complete and
         3) bottle of wine you purchase.*

         *Volunteers will transport purchased wine back to the route end for you.
  • e-bikes are welcome!

Picnic and celebration

Once you've completed your route, settle in for a picnic in the beautiful orchard setting at Kitsch Wines.

The post-event picnic will also feature live entertainment from local singer-songwriter Joshua Smith.

And what fundraiser would be complete without prizes and a silent auction?

Have an item to donate for our silent auction? Email tillie.williamson@canucksautism.ca!


In the event of inclement weather, riders will be able to take their individually-packaged picnic box to go. All necessary health and safety precautions will be made along the entirety of the route, at each stop and at Kitsch Wines. Our team is closely monitoring provincial health orders and recommendations as they develop. Stay tuned for health and safety updates.
