Our philosophy at Centurion Cycling is to encourage the growth of cycling, promote healthy lifestyle choices in our communities and among our competitors, and to give back through our Charity Partner Program and Centurion Cycling Foundation.
The following organizations are partnering with Centurion Cycling at Subaru Centurion The Blue Mountains, Canada in 2016. Please click the logo below to register to join one of the Charity Teams or to support them directly through a donation.
At Centurion Cycling, we seek to align ourselves with large and small non-profit organizations in search of an unique platform in which to increase awareness of their efforts and raise much needed funds. Through this partnership, organizations can focus their energies on building awareness, increasing team participation and raising more funds while leaving the event planning and execution to Centurion Cycling.
In 2015 Centurion Cycling Charity Partners raised a combined total of $100,000!
For Charity Partners with 25 or more team members, Centurion Cycling will provide the following benefits:

CENTURION CYCLING FOUNDATION
We strongly believe in giving back and the North America Sports Community Foundation has allocated more than $1 million in grants to support a wide variety of charitable programs.
Since 2010, here is how the Centurion Cycling Foundation has supported our event communities.
In Ontario, a partnership was established with the aim of encouraging Ontario’s young road racers and rewarding the riders who competed in many of the Youth Cup Road Races and achieved outstanding results. The U15 category was selected as a focus and at the Ontario Cycling Association’s Cycling Celebration awards banquet, U15 series champions Adam Jamieson and Farleigh Creswicke were presented with brand-new 2011 Cervelo road bikes to recognize their achievements this season and motivate them to continue to achieve great results.
In Ontario, the Centurion Cycling Foundation made donations to the following groups in recognition of the volunteer efforts for Centurion Canada: Clearview Midget B, Harmony North Chorus, Jean Vanier High School, Gray Grannies, 1944 EME Royal Canadian Army Cadet Corps, Stayner Minor Hockey Assn, Collingwood Clippers Swim Club, Clearview Ice Cats Midget B, Thornbury Clarksburg Rotary Club, Valley Out Reach.
In Wisconsin, we partnered with DreamBikes the last two years to support their programs and to host community bikes drives in the week leading up to Centurion Wisconsin. Dream Bikes is a non-profit used bicycle store strategically placed in low-income troubled communities. Their goal is to make a real difference in the lives of the kids and their communities, by changing the world one kid and one bike at a time. In addition, the Centurion Cycling Foundation hosted a Charity Challenge donating money to the charity group with the fastest Time Trial time and to the charity group who raised the most money through their charity team.
In Wisconsin, the following groups received donations from the Centurion Cycling Foundation for their volunteer support: Team Survivor, MHS Ski Team, Madison Area Outdoor Group, Oregon Band Boosters, Mad City Ski Team, Middleton Boy Scout Troop 87, Zion City Church, Henry Vilas Zoo, Madison FC U14 Soccer Club.
In Colorado, we partnered with the Davis Phinney Foundation to donate five Cannondale tandem bikes to the Cleveland Clinic’s Center for Neurological Restoration. The Center is nationally recognized for expertise in medical management and innovations in the surgical treatment of movement disorders (Parkinson’s disease, essential tremor or dystonia). In addition, the Centurion Cycling Foundation made donations to the following groups in support of their volunteer efforts for Centurion Colorado: ProJect Yes, BHS Lacrosse Team, Lyons Youth Softball Assoc/ LYBSA, Lyons Community Foundation, Lyons High School Band, Volunteer Connection, Boulder Bison Junior Hockey Team.
CENTURION NEXT WAVE CYCLING
The Subaru Centurion Next Wave Cycling Team is Ontario's new program to develop the next wave of Canadian Cyclists. The team consists of (10) elite male riders, (2-4) elite female riders and (6-8) 12-14 year old entry level riders. The team was developed to support these young cyclists who have the desire and talent to make national teams and more and will stand for excellence, dedication and mentoring them in sport and life. The real benefit of supporting these youth comes from developing healthy young people who learn what it takes to succeed in life. Young people who can influence other of their generation. The support package includes: 2 team coaches for 4 training days per week for 11 months a year, team apparel, cycling shoes, helmets, training camps, travel to events, race entry fees, etc.
