Windup at Shekinah

Looking for an event to get out of the house and onto your bike? Like to feel the wind in your hair and the sun on your face? Like to support a great cause, get together with other people, and have a food-filled windup in one of the most beautiful settings around? The Shekinah Bike-A-Thon is for you!

The Bike-A-Thon was a successful event that raised many needed dollars for Shekinah for many years.  We are thrilled that a few dedicated people have volunteered to get it back up and running. 

To address the fact that not all people are professional - or even really serious - bikers, there will be two start points for the event. If you are feeling up to a bigger challenge, there will be a 65KM route that will be starting out in Martensville and ending up at Shekinah. If you are feeling in the mood for a more leisurely pace, there will be another starting line about 30KMs from Shekinah. This will ensure that people of all ages and abilities can take part in this fun event. There will be rest stations on the way so you can take a breather if you need it.

There is no registration fee associated with this event. Instead, we are asking you to raise money through pledges to support the work of Shekinah. Pledge forms can be found by clicking this link. The committee has set an ambitious goal of raising $30,000, so start raising those pledges!

An event like this can't happen without some dedicated volunteers. If you would like to volunteer to take part in this event by driving a support vehicle, setting up and running a rest stop, fixing flat tires or broken bike chains, or many of the other things that need to happen, please see the contact information below.

You might be thinking that you really don't want to ride a bike; instead, you might want to support a rider. If there isn't a rider you know participating in the bike-a-thon, you can still support the event by making a donation. To do so, please click the Donate Now link. In the comments section, just leave us a note as to who you are supporting. 

Not all of the details are worked out, so we will be updating this page as time goes on. For more information, here are a few ways to sign up or find out more:
