For the summer months, all donations to the VIU General Fund are being allocated to our special bike riding fundraiser!

Bike Fundraiser: About Us
Bike Fundraiser: About Us


Our goal is to fundraise $5,000 for this ride. The funds will be directly used in our ministry this year in the following areas: 

  1. Health of the ministry through maintaining our current initiatives and ministries

  2. Launching the new harm reduction program, called Red Frogs

Donors can make a one time or recurring donation through the VIU General Fund this summer.

August 26, 2023.

80km roundtrip with an option to just bike 40km to Tofino and drive back (ride provided.)

Ucluelet, lunch in Tofino, then back.

Paved cycling path, 95% complete, less than 3km of hwy riding to avoid gravel.  

Christ Community Church will allow us to camp out on Friday and Saturday night. The church has a shower. Bring your own bedding and towels. 

Friday supper through Sunday lunch are provided. We will have snacks and hydration on the route! 

Details: Arrive in Ucluelet Friday afternoon or early evening. Supper at the church and getting our bike ready to go. Bike Saturday after breakfast, starting at 9am. First break will be at Long Beach (23km in), and then lunch in Tofino (40km point). We will head back to Ucluelet after lunch and a bit of time to tour the town of Tofino, stopping again at Long Beach for a snack, and then finishing back at Ucluelet mid afternoon. 

The ride has 500m of elevation gain. For a moderate biker, who bikes at 23km/hr, the riding time would be about 3.5 hours. If you plan to ride slower than 23km/hr, consider starting about 30 minutes ahead of the rest of the riders or enjoy the 40km one way ride. For advanced riders, the path doesn’t really allow you to carry a faster average speed due to 30 gates you have to go through that keep motorized vehicles off (besides, it's a fundraiser, not a race!) The road is in excellent condition and winds gently along Hwy 4 with multiple beach views. 

All riders will receive waivers to sign. 

We ask all riders to promote the ride and get friends and family to donate to the cause. Let’s do this together! 

If you would like to ride, please email or call Lydia!
