Ride your motorcycle to support guide dog training

Bikers, get ready to ride! Ottawa’s longest running charity motorcycle ride returns. The 34th annual Guide Dog Motorcycle Ride takes place this year on Sunday, September 12th. Motorcyclists are invited to ride to raise money towards the training of guide dogs and assistance dogs.

The entry fee is $20 for just the ride, with a BBQ later in the day (BBQ subject to cancellation based on local bylaws and public health regulations at time of event) available for an additional $10. To register for the event, stop by Canadian Guide Dogs for the Blind – 4120 Rideau Valley Drive North – between 9:00 a.m. and 10:00 a.m. on Sunday, September 12th, then head out for the ride! Cash, credit, and debit are all accepted on site. All are asked to please respect physical distancing.

Vision loss has not stopped during the pandemic, and neither has the Guide Dog Ride! A beautiful route has been planned of more than 200 kilometres through Eastern Ontario. Individual riders and clubs are welcome and encouraged to help fill the route with bikes for a great cause!
