Gearing up for a Great Cause

On Saturday, June 13th, the Royal Canadian Navy hosts the fourth annual Navy Bike Ride.
This family-friendly event is a great way to get active for a cause that supports our military families. In its first three years, the Navy Bike Ride has had over 4500 participants and has raised nearly $20,000.

In 2020, the Royal Canadian Navy (RCN) is preparing to honour the 75th anniversary of the end of the Battle of the Atlantic. The longest battle of the Second World War, the Battle of the Atlantic, was fought at sea from 1939 to 1945 with the strategic outcome of being in control of the North Atlantic Ocean.
Over the course of 2,075 days, Allied naval and air forces fought more than 100 convoy battles against the submarines and warships of the German and Italian navies.

Enemy vessels targeted convoys of merchant ships transporting supplies and troops to the war in Europe. Without these supplies, the war effort would have collapsed.
