TPR British Columbia 2022

The 2022 British Columbia Tour Paramedic Ride registration period has now closed. Thank you all for your support! Please follow social media during the dates below to see the great riders and how they remember our fallen. 
 

The British Columbia Tour Paramedic Ride began in 2017 with a small group of riders cycling from Osoyoos through wine country to Kamloops over 4 days. In 2018 and 19 the ride has grown in numbers and popularity raising thousands of dollars for the Canadian Paramedic Memorial and Honour House BC. After a two year pause due to the COVID-19 pandemic the BC TPR returns with a new route through the southwest coast of BC We invite you to participate in this year’s ride or donate in support of the National Tour Paramedic Ride and it’s various causes

Join us June 13-16, 2022 as we ride Southern Vancouver Island and the Gulf Island of Saltspring. This fully escorted and supported ride will take 40 riders over 334 kms of rolling sea scape and old growth forests.  This year’s ride will pay tribute to fallen Paramedics with a ceremony June 15, in the BC Capital of Victoria at the BC Paramedic Memorial on the grounds of the BC Legislative Assembly.
 
The BC ride will start on the Mainland near the Tsawwassen Ferry Terminal where we will enjoy the trip over to Nanaimo. We will then ride south to Crofton for lunch at Third Wave Coffee. After lunch we catch a short ferry ride to Saltspring Island.  After a loop of Saltspring along winding coastline and beaches, we will arrive in Ganges Harbour and stay at the Ganges Harbour House Hotel.
 
Day 2 will start with the Reading of Names then we ride back to the ferry to return to Vancouver Island.  We ride from Crofton west to the town of Cowichan for lunch.  We then do a return trip south to the City of Duncan where we will be staying at Best Western Cowichan Valley.  Dinner will hosted by Boston Pizza.
 
Day 3 starts again with the honouring of our fallen before we ride south to Mill Bay to catch a short ferry to Brentwood.  From there we link up with the Galloping Goose Trail system that takes us through the Capital Region on dedicated bike routes.  Lunch will be on the southern shoreline of Esquiamalt before our last push into the Capital City of Victoria.  After a brief stop at Mile Zero of the Trans Canada Highway, we will ride onto the lawn of the BC Legislature for a full honour ceremony at the BC Fallen Paramedic Monument.
Victoria’s overnight will be at the Double Tree Inn Victoria.  Out last night together we will pay visit to the historic downtown of the provincial capital and enjoy some of the best craft beers available at one (or a few) of the brew houses in the area.
 
Day 4 we will head out a bit later than usual and ride north along the Galloping Goose trail to the BC Ferry Terminal at Duke Point.  After a trip across Georgia Straight we arrive back in Tsawwassen and ride through Delta and part of Richmond to the Offices of the Ambulance and Dispatchers of BC for a final group photo and say our fair wells.
 
There will be an optional ride on June 17 for anyone interested where we will ride part of the BC Ale Trail through Vancouver visiting some of the many Craft Brewery and Distillers and ride through some of Vancouver’s beautiful spots like Stanley Park and the Seawall.
 
We hope you will register and join us as we tour this beautiful region of British Columbia and pay tribute to our colleagues who gave all in the service of others.
