The Payton & Dillon Budd Memorial Ride
The Payton & Dillon Budd Memorial Ride is back, and we’re ready to get moving for mental health! Join us this June 12th for our annual community bike ride where everyone is invited to come together for ourselves, for each other, and for mental health.
After two years of all the uncertainty, stress, exhaustion, and isolation the pandemic has brought, we all need a breath of fresh air. Ride is a chance to connect – with your own mental health, with each other, and with the movement that’s bringing mental health into the open.
Choose your route and ride for you. Raise funds for our community.

A pit stop with bathrooms and refreshments will be provided along this route at roughly the halfway point (Lions Park in Rutland). Don’t know if you can do the full 50km?
