Tour Description

Always our most inspiring and powerful tour, this year’s Battlefield Bike Ride will not disappoint.  BBR 24 sees us returning to the shores of Normandy to commemorate the 80th anniversary of the WWII D-Day Invasion – the launching point of the Liberation of Europe and the end of the war.

Since 2014, Magic Places has been a keen supporter of Wounded Warriors Canada, a non-profit organization that provides badly needed support and care programs for ill and injured members of Canada’s Armed Forces and their families.  WWC has been instrumental in championing public awareness and support programs for Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder resulting in the saving of countless lives and families.

We are incredibly proud to be asked by Wounded Warriors Canada to conduct their annual charity bike ride, the Battlefield Bike Ride.  A 5-day ride, BBR traces the route followed by Canadian soldiers in campaigns of the Great Wars and combines roughly 400km of riding through beautiful countryside with a powerful historical narrative.  Each summer, this ride shows how and where our brave soldiers gave their lives to defend the oppressed while forging our nation’s history and reputation.

This year we retrace the footsteps of our heroes during one of the most pivotal moments of the 20th century: the D-Day landings of World War II. Our meticulously curated itinerary takes you on an exploration of the Normandy coastline, where Allied forces launched their audacious assault against Nazi-occupied Europe. From June 9th to June 14th, experience the past and present merge as you ride along the same roads that witnessed courage, sacrifice, and unwavering determination.
