Become a RIDER!

Be a part of Fresh Start Recovery Centre’s 11th annual 12 Stop Ride for Recovery Motorcycle Road Rally.

WHEN - Held on Saturday, August 24, 2019, registration begins at 7:30 am. This year we are celebrating ’life is a circus' all day long as we venture out onto the road for over 400 km of some of the best riding in the country. Our scavenger hunt style ride will see over 250 riders and their passengers hit the road at 9:00 am SHARP after breakfast at Fresh Start Recovery Centre (411 - 41 Ave NE, Calgary) and end their day back where they started with dinner, silent auction and more fun and games. 

In our 11th year, we are excited to have Centaur Subaru as a sponsor offering our riders a chance to win a new car (we're not telling how though....)!

We've got some crazy stops planned along the way, including daredevil adventures, skill testing activities, audience interaction and some great entertainment - all while enjoying some of the best scenery Canada has to offer!!

The Rally is an opportunity to join community while traveling through the 12 stops in support of an essential cause.
