Two Unique Routes for Riding Biking for Builds

Cap off the cycling season with a 100km or 60km ride through the Parry Sound and Muskoka regions

I can’t think of a better way to spend a fall weekend than going for a scenic bike ride though the Parry Sound and Muskoka regions of Ontario. Especially when you get choose between a 100km or 60km cycling route complete with volunteers, rider support vehicles, paved roads, stunning vistas, delicious homemade treats and water stops along the way, plus the opportunity to give back to the community.

The Biking for Builds Fall Ride, happening on September 27, 2015, is a fantastic way to cap off the cycling season and experience fall in Parry Sound-Muskoka at its finest. It’s also an excellent way to support your community—funds raised from registration and through pledges from riders go towards supporting Habitat for Humanity Ontario Gateway North build projects.

The Biking for Builds Fall Ride offers two routes this year: A 100km Challenge Route, which starts in Parry Sounds at 9 a.m., and the 60km Cruise Route, which starts at 10 a.m. in Rosseau.  If you don’t think you’re up to tackling the 100km Challenge or 60km Cruise on your own, a 3- or 4-team relay option is available for the Challenge Route. Registration is $100 per rider or $300 per relay team, and riders are encouraged to raise funds through a personal fundraising webpage where sponsors can donate to support riders and receive charitable tax receipts. 

Aside from a safe and scenic cycling route, snacks and water on the course and the satisfaction of supporting the life-changing and community-enhancing work of Habitat for Humanity Ontario Gateway North, the event also includes an official Biking for Builds Fall Ride 2015 Tech Shirt, a participant medal, a post-event lunch and beer ticket for riders, draw prizes and entry to the Finish Line Festival celebration hosted at the Bracebridge Habitat for Humanity ReStore. 

Sound like a fun way to spend a weekend? Then head over to the website to register. But be sure to do so before September 12 to be guaranteed a tech shirt in your size.
