“Medicine is good but nothing is more important than love and connection,” says Victoria Mayor Lisa Helps to kick off Ride Don’t Hide, Canada’s nationwide mental health ride.

This year the Greater Victoria ride began in Oak Bay’s Windsor Park this morning (June 24) and is now making its way all around the South Island.

Over four hundred riders ride anywhere from 7 to 100 km routes to raise awareness and funds for public education programs like Living Life To The Full.

The Greater Victoria ride raised more money per capita than any other ride in the country.
