After a successful 2008, The Friends of the Greenbelt are announcing the 2009 schedule for their casual rides in the regions surrounding Toronto.
Designed for fun, rather than competition, this family-oriented cycling Tour is both accessible and affordable to all, with numerous attractions and a variety of rest stops along the way. Described as a ‘fresh air festival on wheels,’ the Tour takes place over four fully paved, marshaled routes.
The four routes include:
• Saturday, September 12 - Niagara-on-the-Lake
• Sunday, September 13 - Burlington, Halton & St. Catharines
• Saturday, September 26 - Newmarket & Lake Simcoe
• Sunday, September 27 - Rouge Valley & Durham
At the end of each route, riders will enjoy a chance to rest and mingle with fellow riders while enjoying freshly prepared local Greenbelt food – all included in the price of your ride!
See the attached pdf for all the details, or check out their Tour de Greenbelt web site.
Surprisingly, I had a hard time finding photographs of the rides from last year. The only ones I found were of these people having fun on the Niagara ride.
