You certainly need to be riding at an intermediate level. By mid August, you should be a confident group rider, able to descend safely, know how to ride in poor weather, be able to ride multiple century rides in a row and ascend in one century ride. You should be riding a total of 600 km/week (300-400 km/week for Stage Riders) during your training. We’ll work with you leading up to the event to support you to this level. Training programs are available to help reach your goal.
Think about all the things you need to pack when you go on vacay: medications, phone, laptop, wallet, sleeping bag, pillow, toiletries, rain gear, base clothing, comfy clothes, sunglasses, heart rate monitor, lights and fender for your bike, notepad, photos from home…oh, and your bike.
We’ll review all the items you need to pack and all the items we’ll provide you over the next few months.
Can’t dedicate 18 days to riding across the country? No worries, we have a fantastic option for you! You can choose to ride 3, 4 or 6 days with the National Team. More options will be announced by the end of March including a 5 day ride.

The support crew is vital to the success of the team and event. An organized and highly functioning support team ensures the overall success of the event. The goal is to create an atmosphere that considers the safety of all participants, enhance the experience and allow the riders to focus on pedaling while they’re on their bikes and resting when they’re in their bunks.
If you’re interested in being a crew member, check out details and roles here: nationalkidscancerride.com/support-crew/ and apply as a crew. Once the application has been completed, a phone conversation will take place and those accepted will be ask to register in Great Feats.
Indeed you do! Once you’re in Vancouver in September, you’ll be decked out in the finest National Ride kit including T’s, jacket, water bottle and more!
You are strongly encouraged to fundraise, although there is no minimum requirement.
