Welcome back all Riders from past Cancervive Tours! Our last 3 rides have been in Alberta, exploring the our beautiful countryside with friends of the Cancervive Community.
First time riding with Cancervive? It may seem a bit much in terms of distance and time! We will help you with training schedule suggestions, group rides, bike and accessories recommendations and nutrition advise. We have support vans along the entire ride. You have the option of not completing the entire day’s ride or skipping a day. First time riders will be grouped with experienced riders. We will also have the veteran riders accompany first time riders for 1/2 or 1 day to help build community and confidence and to ensure all riders are having a great riding experience. We want this tour to be a success for everyone.
