The Ride to Conquer Cancer (RTCC) is a pledge-based fundraiser that began as a single event in 2008 and has grown into a nationwide phenomenon. Five years on, the RTCC is Canada's largest cycling fundraiser and consists of four distinct regional events held across the country in British Columbia, Alberta, Ontario and Quebec. These inspirational rides attract cyclists from all walks of life and create a sense of unity that must be experienced to be believed. The RTCC has raised nearly $150 million in support of cancer research and attracts more than 10,000 riders every year.
Norco is an official RTCC sponsor, and we do more than offer financial support. Since 2011, we have served as the RTCC’s official bicycle and technical support sponsor at all four regional events. Norco event teams attend each ride and work from dawn to dusk offering technical and mechanical support to RTCC riders. Norco is on the ground, offering our wrenching expertise to ensure that every participant has an opportunity to complete the ride of their lifetime.
Norco Bicycles wants to help you reach your personal and fundraising goals.
From now until June 30th, purchase a new Norco Valence or Tactic from an authorized Norco Bicycles dealer, and we will donate up to $150* towards your Ride to Conquer Cancer fundraising efforts.
