Add Meaning to your Ride

EVENTS

We are planning an excitement packed riding season, check out all of our events below. We are hoping that this year we can all forget about COVID-19 and just enjoy the ride!

Until all the restrictions are removed, we will follow all COVID-19 restrictions, guidelines and orders very closely and will continue to rethink and replan events as necessary. We thank you for your patience and support during these trying times. 

We have recently introduced a few new KCR PROGRAMS, last year was the KCR EMERGENCY FUND; and this year we started BIKES FROM BIKERS. Learn all about them by clicking the button below

The Kawartha Charity Riders need a little more time to plan this event. Ryker was an amazing little boy and anything done in his memory has to be absolutely perfect. We are working hard to figure out all the details and how this event can be the most successful for us and the charity we are donating to. 

We thank you for your patience...

NEW PROGRAMS

From time to time, a member comes up with a great idea that we know will be a very successful fundraiser. 

Last year, we started the KCR EMERGENCY FUND and it turned out to be a good thing indeed, with tornadoes and fires and motorcycle accidents, we exhausted the fund and then some. This year we need your help to replenish the fund so that we can again help out families in our community that come on hard times through no fault of their own. Check out the WHEEL OF NAMES fundraiser below to see how you can help...
__________

We are proud to announce a new program that will benefit kids of all ages. BIKES FROM BIKERS is designed to provide bicycles (new and used) to BGC (Boys and Girls Club) who will then distribute the bicycles to kids and teens who would otherwise not be able to get one. Look below to see how this program works...

BIKES FROM BIKERS

This event was a great success. In less than 2 hours we gave away over $8000 in bicycles. The need for this program is overwhelming. We will be doing the same thing again next year with a few tweaks to how we do it along the way.

To donate money, message us on Facebook, send an e-mail to info@kcr-rc.ca, send an e-transfer to donations@kcr-rc.ca with “Bikes From Bikers” in the comment section or as always contact a KCR member.

Thank you to all those who donated bicycles this year. We would also like to thank Canadian Tire & Sportchek (Lindsay Stores), Cochrane Property Maintenance, and Keeley Ward Realtor for there generous donations to the program.
