Dawn Ride 2022

Ovarian cancer is the deadliest cancer faced exclusively by women and yet research is woefully underfunded. Fiona Brown from the BMW Motorcycle Club of Ottawa and a group of friends decided to do something about it- and have they ever! Founded in 2021 they put together the Ovarian Cancer Relief Foundation, organized some fund raising activities centred around their love of motorcycles and riding called the Dawn Ride, and generated over $60,000 for ovarian cancer research.

The BMW Clubs Canada Annual General Meeting (AGM) took place on Saturday April 2 and Sunday April 3, 2022. A big thank-you to our hosts, the BMW Club of Southern Alberta for inviting us to Calgary. It was awesome to meet up with everyone after three long years and we really enjoyed the participation of our special guests Eva and Lara from the BMW Club and Community Management team from Munich.

BMW Canada has updated the BMW Club discount program for purchase/lease of new motorcycles. The discount amount has been changed to a percentage of MSRP amount depending on which model is purchased. Please see the Benefits/Discount Program page for full details on the program.

BMW Clubs Canada produces an annual yearbook with contributions from many member clubs. It’s a great way to get an idea of what clubs are up to across the country! From favourite drives and rides, trips, experiences, as well as a handy guide with contact information on local clubs. A big thank-you to Chris Tworek from the BMW Club Southern Alberta for acting as editor, chasing down content and taking on the huge task of getting it all together!

New Club CI

You may have noticed that BMW (the company) has updated their corporate identity with new fonts, logos and look and feel. Likewise, BMW Clubs around the world have been updating their own logos and I’m proud to show the new design. The BMW Clubs Canada logo now looks like this: You can see what the new logos look like for all our member clubs rolling out on their own websites and in the Member Clubs pages.

2020 Year End

As this roller-coaster of a year comes to an end, and with continued uncertainty ahead, we continue to hope for the best and prepare for the worst. While many events were cancelled and participation was often extremely limited, many clubs did in fact host some excellent activities and many of us found a little bit of happiness in a world of chaos. Clubs were creative in matching activities to the new reality – motorcycle rides now required bring-your-own picnic lunches, track days changed to ‘follow the leader’ format instead of in-car instruction, and restaurant-based meetings changed to outdoor ‘cars and coffee’ formats.

The health and safety of all club members, their friends, families and communities continue to be of highest concern to BMW Clubs Canada. However, as the country starts to open up and some activities are being allowed, many of our members and members clubs are cautiously starting to think about holding some events. The national directors are in regular communication and we’ve been looking at resuming limited activity towards the end of May.
