A New National Virtual Event!

On June 20, 2020

What is this New Cycle for Sight Virtual?

Join us for our new national virtual Cycle for Sight where we ride together safely to fight blindness! Although COVID-19 has created some significant challenges, we're excited that this first ever national event is giving us the opportunity to unite our riders from coast-to-coast on Saturday, June 20th. Cycle for Sight Virtual 2020 is 100% going to be a fun and creative event that we all look forward to participating in together!

Cycle for Sight Virtual is for Everyone!

Truly anyone across Canada can participate in Cycle for Sight Virtual 2020! Registration is free and there are no fundraising minimums. And, for all of our riders that aren't able to cycle, including some of our low vision and blind participants, we're providing other athletic challenges and ideas.

And the technology will be very simple! You will just need access to the Internet and a computer or phone to participate in the event day programming. It's important for our physical and mental health to exercise while we self-distance. And we can continue to stay active together, virtually!


Three ways you can participate:

Cycle Indoors

In the coming weeks we will be sharing a fun half-day program with challenges and activities, including indoor cycling classes, that we can do together virtually on event day.

Cycle Safely Outdoors

If it is safe to cycle solo outdoors at the end of June, then we will provide you with all sorts of route options for your Cycle for Sight.

Run, Walk or Move

If you aren't able to cycle, then set a different fitness goal. Run, walk, climb stairs, jump rope, try yoga…choose your own athletic pursuit!

The Impact You Will Have

Over 1.5 million Canadians are living with blindness or vision loss caused by blinding eye diseases.

Over 5.5 million Canadians are living with an eye condition that puts them at significant risk of losing their sight.

Some were born blind. Others have experienced vision loss as teenagers or during adulthood. Still others lose their sight in retirement when they should be enjoying life. Many have been forced to sacrifice their independence, leaving life-long careers or forfeiting their driver’s license. More still have been losing sight of their loved ones, as blind spots overtake the clarity of their children's faces.

And as field of vision fades, so too can hope.

By raising funds through Cycle for Sight, you are helping Fighting Blindness Canada offer hope to Canadians by identifying the best, most promising research that is driving treatments and cures for blinding eye diseases forward.
