BATTLE OF THE ATLANTIC CHALLENGE
In lieu of physical community events, the Navy Bike Ride will be conducting the Battle of the Atlantic Challenge, a virtual and free event that encourages members, families, friends and their communities to go out and cycle. Whether indoors or outdoors, we are inviting cyclists to get out and ride, all while respecting the rules of social distancing and maintaining the health and safety of individuals and their communities.
The goal is for participants across the country to cumulatively conduct 25,000 rides between 13 June and 30 August 2020, in honour of the 25,000 voyages Canadian Naval and Merchant Marine Forces conducted during World War II in the Battle of the Atlantic 75 years ago. In doing so, participants will also be able to qualify for prizes during this challenge.
