A Signature BLU Event, VELO BLU is a charity ride and celebratory event that is designed to impress with the high-end experiences for each rider and event guest.
Velo Blu allows multiple routes for all cyclists to enjoy the ride with the option of adding a challenge. Our inaugural ride in the fall of 2019 and our modified ride in 2021 took place at the beautiful Peller Estates Winery, where riders were guided on a challenging scenic ride through Niagara-on-the-lake, culminating back for a celebration with great, food, wine, company and sense of accomplishment. Velo Blu continues to raise necessary funds to advance gene therapy research for rare diseases.
We were thrilled to bring Velo Blu back with a larger more inclusive event for 2022. On Friday September 16th Velo Blu – presented by Milborne Group took place at the Peller Estates in Niagara-on-the-Lake. The event took riders on challenging routes through the Niagara landscape and non-riding guests participated in a painting experience overlooking the vinyards or a leisure bike ride through Niagara’s wine country. We had an exciting action packed day and celebratory meal with new and returning sponsors, donors and guests. Thanks to all who supported Velo Blu 2022 we surpassed our fundraising goal and increasing participating and awareness this year.
