Ride For Doug is an Annual Fundraiser Ride for Muscular Dystrophy Canada. Doug is my 13 year old son, and he has Duchenne Muscular Dystrophy. Ride For Doug provides motorcyclists in Langley, throughout the Lower Mainland, and around the world the opportunity to get together, go on a ride, and raise some money. We started with 17 riders raising just over $2,000 in 2007. Our largest ride had 113 bikes and raised $34,000. Over the last 9 years, we’ve raised over $150,000 for the cause. 2016 is our tenth year
It’s time to join us for the Eleventh Annual Ride For Doug. This is a 3-4 hour ride tours some of the Lower Mainland’s nicest motorcycling roads. Oh yeah, you get to raise money for a great cause too! We will be following the successful recipe of last year’s ride with “sportbike roads at a cruiser pace” followed by a delicious BBQ dinner. This ride is suitable for riders of all abilities and styles of bikes. We’ll start and end in the parking lot of the South Langley Church (20098 22nd Ave, Langley).
Registration for the ride will be $20 – but this fee is waived if you arrive with $50 or more in donations from your friends, family, co-workers, or riding buddies. All funds not collected online will be collected on the ride day. The BBQ is included for all riders and their passengers, and is by donation for everyone else. Pre-registration is greatly appreciated so that food and rest stops can be planned.
Online pre-Registration IS AVAILABLE NOW.
We are raising funds and awareness for Muscular Dystrophy. All proceeds are donated directly to Muscular Dystrophy Canada. There will be prizes for the top fundraising riders! Donations above $20 are eligible for tax receipts from Muscular Dystrophy Canada. Please use Muscular Dystrophy Canada’s online donation system to track your fundraising.

If you've never been on this ride, it's a great one. Not only are the roads first rate, but Doug is still able to ride with us. He is 14 years old, and every bit as much a biker as the rest of us. Once you've ridden with him, you'll never be able to think of Muscular Dystrophy the same way.
If you can't make it out for the ride - join us for the BBQ (by donation). In 2013 we had 86 motorcycles, but the BBQ fed over 300 people.
And if you've read this far - make sure you check out the ride website www.RideForDoug.com and find the video of previous rides, as well as Ewan and Charlie's greeting to Doug filmed on Long Way Down.
