Road to the Podium is a charitable event supporting the next generation of Canadian Olympians. We host an annual fun ride and BBQ reception in the beautiful Muskoka region of Ontario with the goal of raising $25,000 each year for future Olympians. 3-time Olympian Georgia Simmerling will be hosting interactive workshops for these youth in conjunction with the event thanks to Alpine Canada.
Georgia Simmerling is the only Canadian to compete in 3 different sports in 3 different Olympic games. After a successful career of Alpine Skiing that included the 2010 Winter Olympics in Vancouver, Georgia switched to Ski Cross. She has won 5 World Cups and competed in the 2014 Winter Olympics in Sochi. With her 2014-15 ski season cut short due to injury, Georgia decided to take on a new challenge and quickly became one of the best track cyclists in the world as a member of the Canadian Track Cycling National Team. A year later, she helped her team win a bronze medal in Track Cycling: Team Pursuit at the 2016 Summer Olympics in Rio de Janeiro. Georgia enjoys mentoring future Olympians while she trains for both the 2018 and 2020 Olympics. Learn more about Georgia.
Event Organizers: Jeff Flemington, Rob McFarlane, Dave Burrows, Rob Dymond, and Charlie Cummings.
