A 200km scenic route from South Surrey to Cultus Lake and back, hundreds ride annually in support of the 1 in 5 British Columbian’s who struggle with a lung condition. Each trekker is required to raise a minimum of $650 towards the fight against lung disease. In return,the BC Lung Association provides cyclists with a fully supported route from start to finish.
A ride, not a race, the event is designed for everyone from the occasional rider to the experienced cyclist. “Trekkers” range from 14-80 years of age, with rookies and veterans with up to 34 Treks!
Together they’ve raised $6.5 million in support of lung health since Trek was established in 1984. Funds raised support vital lung health research, education and patient support programs.
