- Starts at 8am from Heritage Bikes
- Time: 8-9:30. Please note that some rides may be shorter.
Please make sure that your bike is in top shape for each ride. If you need to pump your tires or make small adjustments before your rides, come early (7:45a) and we'll get you set up.
Heritage Bikes is committed to promoting safe cycling in Lanark. Please wear Hi-Viz clothing, have a bell, your helmet, and light on your bike. Riding with a helmet is mandatory.
Lastly, make you you have plenty of water and a snack bar for each ride. We recommend wearing cycling shorts, light athletic clothing, sunscreen and sunglasses.
What is Wheels of Hope?
Sometimes simply getting to treatment can be difficult. If you can’t afford the cost of travel, or if you are not physically well enough to use public transportation, CCS can work with you to help find a solution.
Our Wheels of Hope Transportation Service covers 2 programs: Volunteer Driver Provided Program and Family Provided Program. These programs are intended to assist an eligible client and escort (if required) with their short-term travel to attend cancer-specific medical appointments or supportive care services delivered by a professional recognized by Ontario's Health Care System. Patients must declare a financial, physical or emotional need for service. Read more:
