Why Should You Participate?
So many of us don’t feel like ourselves these days, and the pandemic is making it harder to get the help we need.
Ride Don’t Hide and Spirit Week, is one way to take care of your own mental health, physical health and your community.
It costs approximately $330 for each Canadian to have access to mental health resources in Canada. How can you help ensure your friends, family, colleagues and neighbours will have access to mental health programs and services, when they need it?

How It Works
Ride Don’t Hide Manitoba and Spirit Week 2021 is a “choose-your-own-adventure.”
You decide how—and how much—to get involved. Ride Outside, Ride Inside or Ride in Spirit.
Ride Outside with a goal of 100 km or simply go out for a “leisurely” Sunday ride.
Ride Inside by participating in one or more Spirit Week activities or dust off your stationary bike and track your kms while binging on Netflix. Or Ride in Spirit. Because it doesn’t have to be a literal ride. Cross fit in your basement, do yoga in the living room, take a brisk walk before you start work or take 10 minutes in your day for mindfulness. However you take care of yourself this spring – that’s your Ride.
And sharing it with others – that’s your ‘Don’t Hide.’ Take care of your own mental health, while taking care of others.
RIDE DON'T HIDE MANITOBA IS A CHANCE TO...
Set your own goal, move your body in your own way, and improve your physical and mental health!
Ride Don’t Hide Manitoba brings together teams, families, friends, workplaces and communities to rally around the most important cause of our lifetimes.
As a participant, you’ll get tips, tools, ideas, and activities to help you take care of your own mental health, while taking care of others.
