The Brainiacs Cycling Team was founded in 2009 in BC by 4 Brain Cancer survivors. What started off as a team of 8 riders has grown to a team that has raised over 3.1 million dollars for the BC Cancer Foundation.The Brainiacs hold the Canadian record the most riders registered in a single year at 376 riders. They also hold the BC record for the most ever raised by a community team in a single year at $697,323.

Come ride with us, donate towards our rides & cheer us on as we cycle over 200 KMs Vancouver to Hope in 2 days on August 24-25, 2024. It will be hard and it will be long, but it does not compare to the challenge of facing cancer.


The money we raise for the BC Cancer Foundation will support leading clinicians, scientists, and researchers whose search for new discoveries and improved patient outcomes will have a real impact in our communities throughout the province, across Canada, and around the world.

This is your opportunity to do something challenging and rewarding. And you wont do it alone.

Cancer doesnt stop, neither will we.

The BC Cancer Foundation is the largest charitable funder of cancer research in the province, supporting leading-edge cancer research at BC Cancer whose mission is to:

Reduce the incidence of cancer

Reduce the mortality rate of people with cancer

Improve the quality of life of people living with cancer
