The Ride4UnitedWay is a cyclist ride held in August that supports the work and services of the United Way of Durham Region. There are three courses throughout the day that take the cyclists from suburban Whitby, Ontario and travels north through the country-side of Durham Region. The three routes consist of different distances (60k, 100k, and 160k) and the ride can be challenging depending on the weather, road conditions, and the previous experience of the riders.
The North Shore Amateur Radio Club has been assisting the Ride4UnitedWay, formerly the Oshawa Cycling Club Circle Century, with their annual road tour for several years now. NSARC members help United Way volunteers man checkpoints and tour vehicles along the routes while providing instant communications with the control area should an emergency or a need arise.
