Welcome to the 401 Bike Challenge

The 401 Bike Challenge is a charity bike ride from Toronto to Montreal. A committed group of cyclists and volunteers will depart from the Toronto SickKids Hospital on Wednesday, August 21, 2019 and arrive at the Montreal Children’s Hospital on Friday, August 23, 2019, travelling 580kms over 3 days!

The cyclists, having fundraised for many months before the event start, will make the inspired ride linking these two renowned pediatric institutions and making a difference in lives of the children and families these iconic institutions serve. Please note $15,000 of the total funds raised in 2019 will go to the Canadian CP Registry under the auspices of Dr. Michael Shevell, Head of Department of Pediatrics at Montreal Children's Hospital, with the rest of the funds being equally divided between the pediatric oncology department at SickKids Hospital and Montreal Children's Hospital.
