Pedalling with passion: The origins of B2B

In 1995, Stan and Susan Feldman met Larry Saltsman and Michelle Lavine on a bike trip through the French countryside. After their return to Canada, they decided to ride together again – but this time, they would do it to raise funds for an organization they love: Baycrest. Over a two-day period, they rode 250 kilometres from Bala to Toronto and raised $5,000. The Bike for Baycrest idea took off, and they enlisted Jonathan Feldman to be a founding member of the Barrie to Baycrest organizers’ group. In 1996, riders raised about $45,000.

Over the years, the B2B group has grown, and hundreds of participants have raised a total of more than $10 million.

To all our riders, whose support makes a difference every day in our therapeutic recreation programming at Baycrest, we say: Merci and bonne chance!

B2B loves a good birthday party!

We have celebrated tremendous growth in riders, donors and supporters over the years, as well as B2B milestones.

  • B2B had its 10th anniversary in 2005 – the same year YouTube launched, and Steve Nash became the first Canadian player to win the NBA MVP award. Riders raised a record One Million Dollars!
  • For B2B’s Sweet 16 in 2011, riders sported a jersey and shorts kit that we bet most of you still keep in reserve and sport when you want some attention on the road.
  • In 2013, the ride saw incredible community support for the 18th Chai event, raising more than $1.1 million. Wow!

September 2017 marks B2B’s 22nd year. We wish to thank all our riders, donors, sponsors and friends for supporting Baycrest for over two decades.
