Bikes Will Keep Us Together…Even When We’re Apart

The 2020 Ride Comox Bike Co. YANA Ride happened in a time unlike anything any of us had experienced before, and it was a ride like nothing we’d ever seen before too! 

Thank you YANA riders, donors, sponsors, volunteers and supporters across the Comox Valley and beyond for jumping on board and achieving success that far surpassed our biggest, boldest dreams!  Together, we raised an absolutely unbelievable $110,000 (updated total)!

Check back for exact details to follow, but we will ride again in August 2021!  Registration will open in early June 2021.

Thanks to our sponsors!

Looking Back

2020

Amidst the COVID-19 global pandemic, 424 Riders registered by donation for the first ever socially distanced, “virtual” Comox Bike Co YANA Ride.
An incredible $110,000 was raised for YANA families by these mighty riders and the sponsors, donors, and volunteers who supported them. Make no mistake, when our community comes together like this in such a huge way, under such troubling circumstances, we are showing our youngest, most treasured people, and everyone who loves them, that we care. That we show up. That we will forever promise them – You Are Not Alone.
