2013 Cypress Challenge Registration is Live!

We look forward to hosting the Cypress Challenge every year. We welcome riders of all abilities from across the Lower Mainland to challenge themselves to reach their personal best, while helping defeat a particularly dangerous form of cancer.

Are you ready to join us to ride up Cypress Mountain? Is this your first hill climb? Or will you help by pushing yourself to a personal best on the climb? The choice is yours. All you need is the determination to pedal to the top for the Cypress Mountain Challenge.

Once again you can choose either a 5km or 12 km route and enter in any of a host of different ride categories.  The individual entries are by a minimum suggested early bird donation of $25, or $40 after August 9th.  Click here to register.

To celebrate our 6th Annual event, we have added a few new elements:

  • All 12km rides will be timed from start to finish. So you can accurately track your personal time to the top.
  • An Under 18 age category has been added to both the 5km and 12km rides. For a total of 16 different ride categories.
  • A new Corporate Team Challenge is being introduced.  Teams of four, from participating companies, make the 12 km climb together to the top of Cypress. Registration is $500 per team of four.  Contact cypress@glotmansimpsoncycling.ca for further information on the team challenge.

The fact is that pancreatic cancer has the lowest 5-year survival rate of all cancers – an average of 5% in Canada. With nearly 600 people in BC expected to be diagnosed this year, every dollar we can raise counts to help future outcomes. That’s why 100% of all the money we raise goes to the Pancreatic Cancer Research Fund at the BC Cancer Foundation.
