In memory of David Regehr who inspired us all to live our lives to the fullest. He loved outdoor activities and this ride and his spirit will continue to guide us all to the finish line.
It is with profound regret I announce the cancelling of Dave's Ride. The increased liability insurance costs and declining participants made it no longer viable to continue the event. Thanks for your support over the years.
Registration spots still available on Events.com
Dave's Ride is not a race. It is a time to ride with like minded cyclists that wish to challenge themselves for a ride through some of the most beautiful scenery anywhere in the world.
