About-The-Ride.png

The 33rd Annual Bicycle Trek for Life & Breath is an exhilarating ride along the rural roads of Fraser Valley, complete with mountain views and waterfront scenery. Join us on September 9 & 10,  2017, as hundreds of riders will challenge themselves by cycling 200km over 2 days in support of the BC Lung Association's fight against lung disease. 

Over the past 30 years, the Bicycle Trek has raised over 6 million dollars. This money is used to fund Canadian lung health researchers, clean air initiatives, and patient support programs. For more information on the BC Lung Association's ongoing initiatives, please visit our website at www.bc.lung.ca.
