On Thursday September 8, the Campbell River Grandmothers Group will welcome members of this year's Victoria Grandmothers Cycle Tour to a celebratory dinner to mark the start of the 2022 ride from Campbell River to Victoria, the first since COVID. 27 women aged 55 and older have been training for months for this day, and the excitement is building in this last week leading up to the ride. Two of the riders are from Campbell River while the others are from the Victoria area; 11 riders are doing this tour for the first time.
Follow this blog to hear stories and see pictures from the road. Ride with the team virtually as they ride it on the beautiful roads and trails en route to Victoria.
Here's a photo of the Launch of the Virtual Ride which has been going on for the past month, with riders collecting kilometres to map across Africa. Many of these riders are now switching gears to ride the Campbell River to Victoria Ride.
