Our Final Kilometer Ride & Community Event

This day is a special one for the team because it’s all about the kids we ride for. No matter how many kilometers we ride during the Pedal for Hope Tour, the last kilometer is always reserved just for them.

The team finishes up their cycling tour in the schools on the Friday afternoon but meets again Saturday morning to finish the tour with the kids. With a full police escort, sirens wailing, the team rides the final kilometer with the Pedal for Hope kids right beside them. Once the tour is officially completed the team enjoys the day with the kids and their families. 

2018 Final Ride & Community Celebration – Saturday May 12th 2018

This year the Final Ride will take place in Bowmanville, Ontario hosted by members of the Durham Regional Police Service. The team will ride in from Milbrook and along Highway 2 until they arrive in Bowmanville. 

Once in Bowmanville the Pedal for Hope team will meet up with the older Pedal for Hope kids and ride 3 kilometers along Highway 2 until they meet up with the younger kids at their second stop of the trip. Finally once all Pedal for Hope kids are on their bikes, the team and kids will ride the final kilometer of the 2018 Pedal for Hope tour.

This Final Ride is also a Community Celebration and a chance for the community to join us in the fight against cancer. Whether you collect pledges to shave your head, cut your ponytail to make a wig, or simply come out to cheer on the kids fighting cancer, it is sure to be an amazing event. 

Activities include bouncy castles, face painting, petting zoo, clowns, K9 Demonstration, police motorcycles and more.

Pedal For Hope is a three week cycling tour delivering a message about kids living with cancer and supporting Pediatric Cancer Research.

In 2005, the Peterborough Chapter of Cops for Cancer took on a new identity. The Pedal for Hope Cycling Team was born and local children fighting cancer had a new support team behind them! Local police personnel, a retired N.H.L. hockey player and a great crew of support personnel have been dedicating time to this worthy cause. Starting in late April, the Pedal for Hope team cycles throughout Central Ontario visiting approximately 50 local schools delivering a message about kids living with cancer and raises funds for pediatric cancer research. As of now, Pedal for Hope has raised over $4 million dollars for pediatric cancer research.
