The West Nipissing Cycle for Charity grew out of our passion for cycling and the desire to promote healthy living. The West Nipissing Cycle for Charity is an annual event and all proceeds go to an active fund raising activity.
In October of 2016 was held the first West Nipissing Cycle for Charity event. Ninety-six (96) cyclists and sixteen (16) volunteers participated in this event.
In June 2017, 152 people registered for the FUN BIKE RIDE!
Proceeds go to BIKES FOR KIDS. This project, in conjunction with the West Nipissing Commmunity Health Centre, will give bikes, helmets and locks to children in need.
