BBR17 Route Guide | Daily updates
Beginning June 9, 2017, BBR17 will host up to 150 Canadians, commemorating Canada 150, and cover over 600kms in distance beginning in Canterbury, England and culminating at the iconic Vimy Ridge memorial in France. The tour will pass through sites steeped in Canadian military history as we pay our respects to the 619,638 Canadians and 11,988 men of the Dominion of Newfoundland who served during the First World War. We will remember and honour the nearly 61,000 Canadians and 1,305 men of Newfoundland who gave their lives.
The Battlefield Bike Ride represents the largest single fundraising event for Wounded Warriors Canada each year and embodies the charity’s guiding ethos to Honour the Fallen and Help the Living. Over the past three years, the cyclists, their donors, and ride sponsors have raised over $1.1M. This incredible achievement has allowed Wounded Warriors Canada to expand the delivery of their national mental health programs and services they provide across the country in support of our ill and injured Canadian Armed Forces members, Veterans, First Responders and their families.
