Ride Through the Rockies is a 375 km, four-day cycling event that takes participants from Cochrane to Banff and back in support of Habitat for Humanity Southern Alberta’s affordable housing program. Each of the cyclists is challenged to raise $5,000 to help break the cycle of poverty. Last year’s riders and sponsors managed to raise $115,800!
This year, the riders will be challenged to raise $125,000 and will push themselves to the limit by completing 150 kilometers of biking before competing with hundreds of other riders in the GranFondo race through Banff National Park. After the race, they’ll ride another 75 kms to get back to Cochrane.
