Looking Back

2016

A total of 600 riders took part in the 2016 Simon’s Cycles YANA Ride on August 21 raising over $55,000 for local families. Participants were supported by over 150 enthusiastic volunteers. 45 business sponsors ensured event expenses were covered so that all dollars raised could go directly to local families. It was an incredible day of cycling and a wonderful example of the love that surrounds YANA. Check out the event photographs here.

2015

A total of 525 riders took part in the 2015 Simon’s Cycles YANA Ride. Participants were supported by over 145 volunteers and the community spirit on ride day was tangible. Together, over $44,000 was raised for local families. Thank you to Boomer Jerritt for leaving us with beautiful memories of a fantastic day of cycling and community spirit! More photographs here.
