Five Victoria Breweries & Brew Pubs have agreed to donate their usual fees for beer samplings to VCA rider Lin Chen's Vancouver Ride to Conquer Cancer fundraiser.
We'll sample several beers each at 5 Victoria Breweries & Brew Pubs. Fee: $30 per person.
Since 2009, The Ride to Conquer Cancer® has raised over $59 million for the BC Cancer Foundation and is B.C.’s largest cycling fundraiser.

Lin, a researcher for the BC Cancer Agency, says:
Your donation will go directly to building a T cell clinical trials unit at BC Cancer Agency. It will be run by brilliant and passionate scientists who are innovative and committed. The research is aimed at using our own immune cells to kill tumor cells. We need the funds to make progress by putting ideas to work.
Lunch at Four Mile Pub, where they make a great burger and other pub food. (This is not included in the $30!).
We are starting a little bit later because - who wants to drink beer right after breakfast?
This should be a fun day for a great cause.
Please note: This ride is capped at 24 participants. Only RSVP if you are sure you will attend. If for any reason you change your plans - please cancel your RSVP ASAP!
RSVPs full? Please join the waiting list. Every time we have done this before, everyone has got on to the final ride, there are always last minute cancellations.
Vancouver Island Brewery and Four Mile Pub have confirmed their participation.
Some breweries offer free samplings and accept charitable donations in lieu of a fee. In these cases we will donate $5 from you to Lin's fundraiser.
