Instead of a big bike ride, the RBC GranFondo is organizing a bunch of smaller, distance-friendly events. One is the 12 Day Challenge—so buckle up your helmet for a dozen days of incentivized cycling. Participants can choose to ride 55km, 122km, or 152km between September 1 to 12. Once completed, you’ll be entered to win a series of prizes (think a road bike, island getaways, DUER jeans, and beer). All proceeds benefit Food Banks Canada and Feed America.
