2022 Atlantic Challenge, Wellspring Ride for Cancer Support

If you are longing for adventure and looking for a unique challenge while making a difference in the lives of others, then the Wellspring Ride for Cancer Support is for you. Teams of cyclists ride together in pelotons (teams), for 7 days to complete a journey from Toronto, Ontario to Halifax, Nova Scotia. The ride will go through the stunning Quebec countryside, along the breath-taking Cabot Trail in Cape Breton, and will end in one of Canada’s most historic locations, Halifax.

Held annually since 2012, the Wellspring Ride for Cancer Support has raised more than $3.4 million – funds which have provided life-enhancing programs and services for cancer patients, their family members and those who care for them. Every year the Wellspring Ride for Cancer Support serves up a new adventure destination. Previous destinations have included Austin, Texas; New Orleans, Louisiana; Miami, Florida; Las Vegas, Nevad;,San Antonio, Texas and The Blue Mountains, Ontario.

This is not another group charity cycling event. Instead, it is an epic adventure and a unique cycling challenge.
