Event Information


Join us on June 22, 2019, to ride 100, 160 or 200km. Your event registration fee is $50 and gets you to the start line, but your added donations gets us all one step closer to understanding and improving Mental Health Awareness.

Positive Spin is a cycling event that brings together the community, showcases our beautiful roads and raises money for the Canadian Mental Health Association. We’re about having fun, promoting health and fitness, boosting tourism and supporting the Canadian leader in Mental Health awareness and support, the Canadian Mental Health Association. Cycling is great for your physical health, but it also has numerous positive mental health impacts as well. While some people ride to get fit, there are many who ride bikes simply because it makes them happy. In fact, science suggests that mental health may even be a stronger predictor of life expectancy than physical health, or even heavy smoking.

Cycling has the power to engage, inspire and bring a community together. Positive Spin strives to do all of these things while creating a challenging day of cycling and bringing awareness to mental health. We want to promote cycling, provide a challenge, and showcase the mental health benefits associated to the sport. We want to celebrate cycling with an unforgettable ride. We want to educate by showing people the benefits of cycling and taking the stigma out of mental health issues. We want to connect people over a challenging and beautiful cycling route.

You’re invited to join us and your fellow cyclists for a great day on two-wheels exploring the Chilliwack area.
