The purpose of The Ryders Cycling Society of Canada, spearheaded and supported by Canadian professional cyclist, Ryder Hesjedal, is to create and sustain opportunities for young Canadians to ride bicycles.By doing so RCSC will support and expand the social benefits of cycling and the cyclist’s lifestyle. Those benefits include, but are not limited to: better individual health and fitness; enhanced environmental awareness and ecological impact; improved community cohesion; and greater economic sustainability.

“I like to give back to the sport that has given me so much, so that is part of the mission of the RCSC. If I can inspire young folks to get on the bike, then that is a success in my eyes.” – Ryder Hesjedal
