Rally's Britton to Ride 300 Miles Along Vancouver Island for Mental health Fundraiser

Rally's Britton to Ride 300 Miles Along Vancouver Island for Mental health Fundraiser

Rally Cycling's Rob Britton will embark on a 300-mile ride across Vancouver Island to raise funds for the WIRTH Foundation, which benefits mental health.

Rob Britton will tackle the longest bike ride of his life on the longest day of 2020. 

Britton, Rally Cycling's GC rider, plans to ride the length of Vancouver Island, from Victoria to Port Hardy, on Saturday. He's calling his ride the UpIslander

According to Britton's Strava route, the ride will encompass 504 total kilometers of riding (314 miles) and 4,650 meters of elevation gain (15,266). He is completing the journey with his training buddy, Taylor Little, and the two will be self-supported during the trip.

"We'll be hitting Tim Horton's along the way and praying there's no line outside," Britton told VeloNews. "That's just about the most Canadian way to do a trip like this."

The route traverses the eastern coast of the island and goes through Nanaimo, Courtenay, and Campbell River, before turning inland to complete the route to Port Hardy. The entire route is on paved roads, however Britton and Little are riding their gravel bicycles during the challenge.
