The Forest City Cycling Challenge (FCCC), sponsored by Lerners Lawyers, is a cycling event in the London, Ontario and surrounding area that is raising funds for youth mental health. The first annual event was held as a virtual event in 2021 and raised over $37,500 for St. Joseph's Health Care Foundation. Proceeds from the event will be used for the MINDS project at SJHCF – dedicated to tackling complex mental health challenges facing youth in our region.

After a very successful first year in 2021, we are starting to work on plans for the second annual event in 2022 - hopefully without the need to plan around a COVID pandemic again. We are currently moving ahead with plans to have an in-person event with several options for riding - from a family-friendly TVP route to more challenging county (paved and unpaved) routes, with a common start/finish, food, prizes and so on. If you have ideas that you would like to share, please feel free to do so, on social media, or via out 'Contact Us' page.
As the plans develop, we will update this website, along with our social media accounts, so please continue to follow us to find out what will happen in 2022!
