The Forest City Cycling Challenge (FCCC), sponsored by Lerners Lawyers, is a new cycling event in the London, Ontario and surrounding area that is raising funds for youth mental health. Proceeds from the event will go to the MINDS project at St. Joseph’s Health Care London – dedicated to tackling complex mental health challenges facing youth in our region.
As far as the event itself is concerned, COVID has forced us to organize it as a 'virtual' event for this year (we hope to have a more traditional 'in-person' event in 2022). What this means, for this year, is that we will have a list of participating locations (sponsors, tourist sites, coffee shops, etc.) that we will provide to participants, with the expectation that you can visit those locations as part of your selected route. Businesses that participate will have discounts or specials for cyclists who visit.
We will provide suggested routes for all participants by mid-May (although there is no need to follow the routes if you would prefer to create your own). The suggested routes will be approximately 25k (for the 'TVP' level), 30-40k (for the 'city' level) and 80-100km (for the 'county' level).
Everyone who registers before midnight on April 30 will have one entry in a draw for an official FCCC event cycling jersey (approx. $150 value).
All participants will receive a minimum of: an event t-shirt, event sticker and Hammer Nutrition sample pack.
This year's top fundraiser will win a Weekend Stay for 2 at Tailwinds B&B in Hillsburgh, Ontario (once COVID restrictions are lifted).
