“BOOMER’S” BIKE RIDES IN SUPPORT OF BOOMER’S LEGACY

We wish to draw your attention to three upcoming Boomer’s Legacy Bike Rides that are occurring in Ottawa, BC, and NS in the upcoming months. Since 2008, these Rides have raised thousands of dollars to “help our soldiers help others”. Funds raised by Boomer’s Legacy are used by soldiers, sailors, airmen and airwomen wherever they are deployed to provide humanitarian assistance to men, women and children in need.

Each Ride takes the cyclists on an emotional journey of honour, awareness and commitment. The National Capital Region (NCR) Boomer’s Ride is scheduled to start and finish at Canadian Forces Station Leitrim on Saturday June 9th 2013. The NCR Ride takes the cyclists on a 110km course, through scenic and historic Capital region sites and over challenging terrain including the Gatineau hills.

The BC Ride is a two-day event covering 240 kms from Comox to Victoria, on June 14th and 14th, 2013. Starting at the gravesite of Andrew “Boomer” Eykelenboom in Comox, cyclists will take in the beautiful scenery of the Vancouver Island coastline, and will be challenged just before reaching Victoria by a steep climb up the Malahat mountain.

The Nova Scotia Ride is a challenging one-day event covering 174 kms, on Saturday September 14th, 2013. Departing from CFB Greenwood, the cyclists will pass through rural communities of the Annapolis Valley, follow the south shore of the province, and finish the day with a climb to the top of Citadel Hill in Halifax.

Through their commitment to join and raise a minimum of $300, riders will be supporting Boomer’s Legacy and the humanitarian projects it funds, through our soldiers, to help men, women and especially children in war torn areas wherever our soldiers are serving.

Boomer’s Ride also serves to honour all of our fallen soldiers who have given their lives to our freedom. The bike of each rider with be adorned with a picture and bio of two fallen soldiers who were killed in Afghanistan while serving Canada and Canadians.
