The cycle club will slow down in September to focus on planning and, to catch up with letters of thanks owed to the local businesses that kept the wheels in motion this year. Unfortunately, the club can no longer afford insurance, and will no longer be hosting family rides in Petawawa as a club. However, there is nothing stopping parents and friends of this awesome community from bringing their kids out for bike rides. Hopefully everyone can continue to connect on Facebook and ride together again.
If you are interested in supporting this by displaying a bike and sign in your neighbourhood, agency or place of business, please contact Susan Patterson. Let's reduce stigmas around mental health in our communities, open up and share. Mental health affects all of us, we are all in this together.
We have sold out of our Beautiful Blue Bikes. Businesses and not-for-profit organizations and families have been wonderful supporters of this campaign. Thank you for purchasing a Beautiful Blue Bike to proudly display at your place of business. To show support for Clara’s ride and as an awareness tool during her ride across Renfrew County, the bikes will be temporarily moved and placed along Clara’s route throughout the county. This is a great opportunity to get involved and show support for mental health in our region and across Canada.
