On Thursday August 16th 2018, members of the Victoria Beach Police will once again lead a group of enthusiastic civilian cyclists on a 100 mile, (one day) epic journey. We are happy to announce that we have a new major sponsor this year - “South Beach Casino”. This year’s event will start and finish at the South Beach Casino Hotel having us complete the cycling marathon distance of over 160 kms on an out and back course.
2018 marks our 8th bi-annual event that raises funds for Children’s Wish Foundation. Children’s Wish grants the wishes of children ages 3-17 coping with high risk, life-threatening illnesses. Our last event in 2016 raised over $20,000 and helped grant 2 heartfelt wishes. In total, we are well over $100,000 in donations from our previous 7 events. Please consider a donation to our cause and help us grant wishes!
This year’s event will be capped at 40 cyclists who will each be required to raise a minimum of $400.00 in donations. Our first class event takes participants south down nostalgic Highway 59 through Lockport with our usual stop at the original Skinners for lunch. Since we are doing an out and back course this year we will not be entering Winnipeg. We have not completely confirmed our route as of yet but we are hoping to swing through Birds Hill Park for a lap (or two) before returning to South Beach.
This year we have changed our distance from our regular 130 kms to a true “Century Ride” distance of 100 Miles (161 kms). This is the Marathon distance for long distance Road Cyclists. This distance may seem daunting but trust me it is not as we break every 90 minutes to get off the bikes, hydrate and stretch.
For more information on this year’s event or to enter please contact Event Coordinator – Sergeant Clyde Raven of the Victoria Beach Police at (204) 756-2322. Donations may be made by contacting any participant or Children’s Wish at 1-800-267-9474 or through this website.
This year’s Entry deadline will be June 30th 2018. Donations will be accepted until the end of August.
