Westcoast Motorcycle Ride to Live

Right now, 1 in every 9 Vancouver Island men is diagnosed with prostate cancer. The Westcoast Motorcycle Ride to Live raises awareness by staging this event focused on Prostate Cancer early detection and prevention. We have raised over $690,000 towards education and research right here on Vancouver Island. We ride for our dads, our brothers and our friends. Join us Sunday, September 13th!

We are doing things a little differently this year! This event has been switched to a virtual model…instead of getting together on September 13th at Enrico Winery, as originally planned, we encourage you to get out and ride the beautiful route on your own or with your close circle. On the day of the ride we will can all post and share our photos or videos from the day on our social media channels to help bring us together virtually!


All you need to know!

  • For this year only, when you register, this “registration fee” of only $25.00 will be classified as a donation to Island Prostate Centre and will be eligible for a tax receipt.

We need the support of our community more than ever.

During this crisis, we’re committed to being here for the 1 in 9 men diagnosed with prostate cancer and their families — but it’s not easy. We are a small team doing vital work at a precarious moment. Now, we’re relying on the generosity of our community to help see us through.

We know men still need us and we want to ensure that we are here to help!

Your ROUTE, Your RIDE, let’s show some RIDE TO LIVE PRIDE!

  • Although we can’t all get together as normal before the ride begins, we are encouraging you or your circle of friends and family to get out and ride this route on September 13th!
  • Together, but apart we can still create an impact across the Island as we ride the route and show our support for those impacted by prostate cancer.
  • Total time approximately 1 hr 40 minutes.
  • Total distance traveled is approximately 56 kms.

Need some help with your fundraising? We have you covered!

Trust us, we get that asking people for money is a difficult task. But if you have been impacted by prostate cancer in some way – you or someone you know has been diagnosed – you know how important raising money really is to ensure Island Prostate Centre is there to help!

THANK YOU for taking the first step in wanting to help – we are with you every step of the way!
