CMHA Victoria's Ride Don't Hide
U-bicycle provided complimentary bicycles for use to those who participated in the event with our team. Our U-bicycle team, participated in a number of rides, including the 7 km, 18 km, and 28 km rides; participants included team leader Raviv, Diana, the Mike Family, and the Susan family.
Mike had his own bike, but his sister and brother just moved to Victoria and they didn't have a bike. Thus, they used our bikes. Surprisingly and inspiringly, David, who hadn't ridden a bike for 30 years, jumped on our bike and finished 7 km!
We were thrilled to have Mike, and two new Victoria residents, his sister and brother join us at the event. Due to their recent move, we provided the siblings with our easy to ride Green U-bicycles! David, Mike’s brother who hasn’t rode a bicycle 30 years successfully and proudly finished the 7k ride! Go David!
Susan and her family also joined us for this fantastic event. Susan and her family also recently moved to Victoria and we couldn’t be more ecstatic that her and her family wanted to join our team using our complementary U-bicycles!
Rider Diana commented how the U-bicycle was a fantastic choice to use during the 28k ride. She mentioned how the seat was comfortable, and especially enjoyed the manual features, along with the three-speed gears that allowed her to ride the 28k course with ease.
It was an event full of love and joy! We would love to take part again next year!
