Rides & Events

Velo Cape Breton is a group of concerned bicyclists who advocate for better cycling awareness and cycling infrastructure throughout Cape Breton Island and beyond.  To support that effort, we organize many social and riding events to raise money, promote awareness, develop camaraderie among cyclists, and just for fun.  The following are a list of rides and events that we typically organize each year, or a cycling event organized by others, but  which may be of interest to our members.  For a full list of this years rides and events, please see our Schedule page.
