Sponsor Gastown Cycling
Gastown Cycling Association ("Gastown") is a B.C. based, non-profit organization created in 2009 by local cycling enthusiasts to provide a forum for education, fitness and camaraderie. We share an enjoyment of cycling in all its forms, and attract riders from across the spectrum, from weekend warriors to Cat 2 racers. Our club’s mission is to foster a greater awareness and appreciation of cycling as a way of life, while focussing on becoming leaders in fundraising for cancer research. We are well on our way to meeting our objective: since its inception, club members have raised over $665,418 for the benefit of the BC Cancer Foundation.
The club’s objectives include continued engagement in fundraising initiatives, while we expand and improve our racing team, all while enjoying the love of the road and the friendship of a great group of cyclists. With a recognized brand, and an infectious attitude, Gastown is spreading the good word of cycling, one ride at a time.
Gastown is looking for corporate support to assist in attaining its organizational objectives. To our supporters, we offer a unique opportunity to participate in this growing phenomena that is cycling, through a low cost, high impact sponsorship relationship.
Cycling has everything your company needs for mass public attention: speed, drama and inspiring feats of athleticism. It is “of the moment”, has broad demographic appeal, and has been embraced as the “new golf”. The result is a sport that promotes a lifelong activity that appeals to people of all ages making it possible to reach a broad audience that goes beyond the limitations of other sports.
How does your contribution work?
We want your company to be a part of the Gastown Cycling community. We recognize that our educational and charitable fundraising objectives cannot be met without an organization, and your financial support is necessary to help the club operate, and grow, for years to come. Our budget, while small, greatly benefits from the generosity of our sponsors.
The cost of participating in organized cycling events – which includes licenses, insurance, race fees, travel, uniforms, equipment and club / event administration & operations, quickly absorbs funds generated by club dues. Your support ensures that our club members and racers have an opportunity to contribute to the cycling community, while we spread our sponsors’ brand and grow their reputations as leading contributors to worthy community causes.
To our Prospective Partner

We believe that an association with Gastown will bring real and measurable benefits to your company / organization.
