The Bike Rally Village moves on
Welcome to Johnstown where our journey continues eastward. We hope you enjoyed the journey from Kingston today. We couldn't ask for better weather!

Just a reminder, tonight we're camping at a public campground and our tent area is right beside some lovely families that aren't part of our Bike Rally Village - yet! So please keep the noise down and behaviour in check!
Tips for Tomorrow
  • Tomorrow is POZ Day - a day to reflect on why we are riding. Participants who are living with HIV are able to self-identify by wearing a POZ jersey in a safe and welcoming environment - there is no stigma attached to being HIV positive here. If you wish to wear a POZ jersey, pick one up tonight at camp at the specified location after dinner.
  • For those not wearing a POZ jersey show your solidarity and support for our courageous friends who are living with HIV/AIDS. Plan to give plenty of hugs and smiles!
  • Please do not take pictures of anyone wearing a POZ jersey without first getting their consent. 
  • When you arrive in Lancaster, stop at Dairy Queen for a DQ Blizzard - it's a Bike Rally tradition! For today only, $0.50 of every sale of a DQ Blizzard will go to PWA.

On Sunday, July 30, 2017, a dedicated group of Riders and Crew embarked on either a 6-day 600 km journey from Toronto to Montréal or a 1-day 110 km journey from Toronto to Port Hope, both in support of people living with HIV/AIDS. PWA's Friends For Life Bike Rally is the sustaining fundraiser of the Toronto People With AIDS Foundation. The experience of the Bike Rally promises to have a profound impact on the lives of every participant.
