With over 600 km of loose surface, a distinct aversion to the Trans Canada Highway, and inclusion of some of the most isolated roads in Eastern Canada, Dispatches’ inaugural group ride is one with the adventurous, determined and tenacious rider in mind. What better embodies the spirit of those who volunteered to serve their country and their communities, and what better to bring those spirits together, than shared challenge and adventure?
On August 6th, 2019, TRB will depart Halifax, NS bound for Victoria, BC. At the same time, 20 riders from Dispatches depart Quebec City, QC to make the loop through the Atlantic Provinces.
The two will once again come together in unity and solidarity as their routes cross in Charlottetown, PEI on August 7th. Whether you are perched upon an adventure bike headed east, or comfortably straddling a westward bound cruiser or sport bike, we hope to see you there!
