OPP Provincial Constable Adam Belanger is the Provincial Bike Coordinator & Tammy Heidbuurt is the Executive Director of New Hope Community Bikes in Hamilton. They join the 10-5 Podcast for our 100th Episode to talk about the James Bay EPIC Fat Bike Ride.
The Ontario Provincial Police, Nishnawbe Aski Police, New Hope Community Bikes and Ontario Cycling partnered together to build Youth Bike Programs in five communities along the James Bay Coast.
To raise awareness and funds for the program, five cyclists from across Ontario, a mix of OPP officers and members of the public participated in the James Bay Epic Fat Bike Ride from March 7-9, 2023.
The riders cycled 300 km from Moose Factory to Attawapiskat, on Fat Bikes, to raise awareness and funds for youth cycling education programs and resources to the remote communities of Moose Factory, Moosonee, Fort Albany, Keshechewan and Attawapiskat, along the northwest coast of James Bay.
All of the programs focus on positively engaging, influencing and mentoring youth through cycling and bicycle care.
