On Sunday, June 24 a fourteen person team from RRC cycled 21K in Canadian Mental Health Association’s annual Ride Don’t Hide event. Ride Don’t Hide is Canada’s largest bike ride for Mental Health with 31 communities across 7 provinces and over 7,000 people riding.
Our team rode to raise awareness and highlight the importance of mental health, fight the stigma associated with mental health problems, and raise funds for quality mental health services.
The community ride began in Vimmy Ridge Park and took cyclists through Wolseley, along Wellington Crescent, through River Heights, to the Legislative grounds, The Forks, along Waterfront Drive, and through Downtown before returning to Vimmy Ridge Park for refreshments and live music.
In addition to supporting a good cause, the morning ride provided a chance to be active and social while enjoying nature- all of which contribute to good mental health. Three cheers for all of our riders and to the College for sponsoring our team!
