About the Ride For Safe Streets (RFSS)

Join us for the Ride for Safe Streets (RFSS) and help us raise $50,000 to fund cycling advocacy, including bringing protected bike lanes to Bloor St, Danforth Ave, Yonge St and beyond! There are only 400 ride spots available, so don’t wait!  Registration is $40, and includes a fully escorted ride and lunch at our reception. You can ride the full distance of ~25km, or join us mid-way for a ~10km option. If you want to deepen your impact, you can fundraise to support the cause by encouraging your friends to sign up for Cycle Toronto, or by making a donation. Donate $30 or more and you're eligible for a Cycle Toronto friend membership, granting access to discounts and services. Donors also entered into a draw to win a $500 gift card from VIA Rail.

Want to take your participation a step further? Round up some friends and co-workers and make it a group outing! You can register up to five people in one transaction, so bringing friends and family along for the ridehas never been easier. We're encouraging participants to reach out to their networks to deepen the impact of their participation, and help us raise even more money to support our advocacy work for safer streets. 

Here's how to create a team:

  1. Register for the ride - If fundraising, then select 'Waive Fee'. If not fundraising, then select 'Pay Now'. 

  2. After registration is complete, create a fundraising page via the 'fundraise' button.

  3. Use the TEAM page type to make a team, and customize your page with a description and image, if you like.

  4. Through the same process, use the TEAM MEMBER page type to create your own page that is affiliated with your TEAM page.

  5. If your team is not fundraising, set the team goal to $1 (leaving the field blank or entering $0 will create an error).

Here's how to join an existing team:

  1. Register for the ride - If fundraising, then select 'Waive Fee'. If not fundraising, then select 'Pay Now'.

  2. After registration is complete, create a fundraising page via the 'fundraise' button.

  3. If the TEAM is already created, then use the TEAM MEMBER page type to create another personal campaign page, then link to the TEAM page you want to join.

  4. If you are not fundraising, set your personal goal to $1. Blank or $0 will create an error.

NB. Ride registration and fundraising page creation are separate processes. This means that registering for the ride does not automatically create a fundraising page, even if you register multiple people. Similarly, creating a fundraising page does not automatically register you for the ride.
