The RIDE will happen as scheduled on Saturday, October 3, 2020! However, Covid-related health risks and operational challenges won't permit us to assemble in large groups. So instead, we'll gather virtually, self-organizing in smaller, covid-friendly teams or groups as permitted.

Let's keep our RIDE location communities going! Register for the same RIDE location as last year - or, if you are new, register in a location you're within an hour of.

About The Journey Neighbourhood Centre

The Ride for Refuge is a fun, family-friendly bicycle ride (10 or 25 km), or walk (5km) to raise funds for The Journey Neighbourhood Centre.


The Journey Neighbourhood Centre is a Brampton charity committed to bringing hope and transformation to Brampton’s Ardglen/Orenda communities walking alongside children, youth and families as they take positive steps in their lives. Your support will help to provide programming including arts, science, music and after-school activities for children and teens!

Community Sponsors

Brampton is super grateful for our fantastic 2020 sponsors! View all sponsors >

  • A helmet is mandatory for all riders
  • A face mask
  • Snacks in case you get hungry
  • Your bike or walking shoes
  • Your own water bottle, filled with icy cold water
  • A passion for the charity you're riding or walking for
