KVC Celebrates Canada’s Proud Heritage
This season, the Kingston Velo Club is offering a series of heritage rides in recognition of Canada’s 150th birthday. The Canadian Heritage Ride Series will feature one ride per month, from May to September. Each will offer stops at locations that hold some historical significance in the development of Kingston and Eastern Ontario. Riders can pick up a passport on any ride, and will receive a stamp for each ride completed. Those who complete a minimum of 3 rides will qualify for a special raffle prize. Check out the online calendar below for information on all the heritage rides.

Life Cycle 2017
This is a non-KVC event. Life Cycle is more than a cycling event. It’s about giving back to the hospitals that have helped your family, friends, and neighbors during all stages of life. By joining us on the ride, you are contributing to the next exciting chapter in the history of your Kingston hospitals. Check the Life Cycle 2017 website for details.
