"A TRULY AMAZING EXPERIENCE!"

About PWA’s Friends For Life Bike Rally

Are you ready for a life-changing experience? This is a Ride like no other.

The Bike Rally originated as a 6-day, 600 km bike ride from Toronto to Montréal. In 2016, the Bike Rally introduced a 1-day, 110 km bike ride from Toronto to Port Hope. Now in its 19th year, the Bike Rally has engaged over 3400 participant as cyclists and crew and has raised over $15 million dollars for the Toronto People With AIDS Foundation (PWA). The Bike Rally is the sustaining fundraiser for PWA supporting its ability to provide critical services and support to individuals living with HIV/AIDS in Toronto.

"The Bike Rally encourages you to get out on the road and do something you think you can't do...but you can!"

~Allyson - 7 year Rider

Making a Positive Difference

Bike Rally Participants of all ages and levels of experience share a common passion in supporting their friends, family and neighbours living with HIV/AIDS. Join PWA’s Friends For Life Bike Rally for the experience of a lifetime and help make a positive difference.

"I do the Bike Rally because I know how important the work is that the Toronto People With AIDS Foundation does."

~Rodney - 2nd year Rider

It’s so much more than a Bike Rally

Raising critical funds and spreading awareness about HIV/AIDS is what you do for PWA. PWA is the largest practical support service provider in Canada serving people living with HIV/AIDS. Funds raised through the Bike Rally ensure that people living with HIV/AIDS get access to programs and services that nourish their whole self in a welcoming and healing space.
