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 Safe Harbour

Have you heard about Pictou County Safe Harbour?


Pictou County Safe Harbour (PCSH) is a community-based refugee sponsorship group that was founded in 2015 in response to the Syrian Refugee Crisis. PCSH began with the sponsorship of one family from Syria in 2016, but in the years since, PCSH has remained an active sponsorship group and has welcomed nearly 50 individuals to the community from both Syria + the Democratic Republic of the Congo. These newcomers have become vital citizens within our community - working as teachers, nursing aids, construction workers and cooks. We want to continue this efforts and invite you to join us in raising funds to sponsor additional families in 2021 - increasing the strength, diversity and friendships within our community!

Route Details

Safety First!

If your team is outside on Event Day, keep a close eye on everyone, their plans, whereabouts, and safety.

  • Youth and children should always be supervised.
  • In case of any accident or injury, immediately call 911 for emergency support.
  • If an accident does occur, please contact the RIDE Head Office by phone or email.
  • All participants are expected to be aware of and respect all Covid-related health and safety guidelines for their area, including but not limited to exercising social distancing protocols and wearing masks as required.


What to Bring

Common Sense Mainly!

  • A cell phone for emergencies (recommended but not required)
  • 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
  • Warm layers with moisture-repelling clothing in case it's cold or windy. Late September / early October weather can be cool, with rain and wind. The weather might also be gorgeous and sunny. Be sure to keep your eye on the forecast!
