Smitten with coastal riding? Then say buongiorno (good morning) to Puglia, your beautiful new seaside paramour, featuring sun-soaked villages, glorious secular olive groves, delicious all-organic food and mile upon mile of soul-stirring biking. After an intimate dinner at a 12thC castle, an exclusive guided walking tour of Baroque Lecce, a visit to the UNESCO-protected trulli and a glass (or two) of prosecco in the shadow of a famous cathedral, you’ll receive the experience you seek—and then some.

Luxurious Burgundy Adventure

(WINNER: Andrew Reiken)


prize-piemonte

“All-Rider” Eligible Prize Courtesy of Butterfield & Robinson (Riders get an addition ballot to win for every increment of $500 raised over their minimum!)

Burgundy is vintage B&R territory—a place renowned for its culinary traditions, celebrated wines and rich history. With our European headquarters based in Beaune, Burgundy for us is literally home territory. Thousands of miles of peaceful, paved roads await your exploration, and our guides are well acquainted with how best to stay off the beaten track when traversing this stunningly varied landscape. We’ll lead you to the top of the gorgeous Hautes Côtes, uncork the splendid vintages from French wine’s ancestral home, and bed down some of the region’s most characteristic hotels, including the delightful Castel Tres Girard in the heart of the Côte de Nuits.

stans clubLead the way! Members of Stan’s Club, which was first created for the 18th B2B Chai in 2013 to honour B2B founder Stan Feldman, pledge to raise or donate a minimum of $10,000 to support the work of Baycrest’s therapeutic and recreational fitness programs. Stan’s Club’s success is legendary, accounting for more than half of all funds raised in its first year.

The B2B committee and founding Stan’s Club members are putting out the call again in 2017: Who will lead and join Stan’s Club? Never has this cause been more critical and timely for our community. Baycrest and Stan’s Club members lead the charge to support brain health and seniors’ fitness.
