Bridging the Gap Ride #3

Bridging the Gap Ride is an annual cycling event hosted by Motherland Cycling Club (MCC), that aims to bring cyclists of diverse backgrounds and persuasions together for a fun and entertaining ride where participants get to experience different cultures, eat, laugh and dance afterwards—all while also supporting a local charity*. After ride entertainment will feature a DJ, food and games.

Bridging the Gap Ride #3 promises to be even more fun and exciting. We have added a complimentary second day of riding that is open to all registered participants! Last year, we had over 400 cyclists and are limiting the registration to 500 cyclists this year so please register early and share the word. 

Event Give Away – All participants will receive a meal and drink ticket as well as a raffle ticket. A few lucky participants will win several nice gifts. Details will be provided subsequently. Some of the prizes that will be won include a brand new Scott Speedstar 20 Carbon roadbike, a set of Bontrager Aeolus Elite aero wheelset, and much more!!  All participants who register before September 22, 2022, will receive a T-Shirt in their size.
