Like to ride your bike?  Like to sketch?  Like to check out cool, places in Windsor?  Then a unique event being held this weekend is for you.

#tourdesketch is a slow bike ride and sketch tour around olde Walkerville and the riverfront hosted by local artist Owen Swain.

The ride will begin at 2pm the City Cyclery on Linclon Road  where riders can rent a bike or bring their own.  The tour will make three stops for 20 minute live sketches at each location.  The first stop will be at Great Western Park along the waterfront, after a 20 minute sketch there, the group will move to City Hall Square downtown.  The tour will end with a final sketch point at Taloola Cafe / the old Walker Power Building.

At the end of the tour, riders have the option to hang up their hat or helmet at a local Walkerville restaurant to chat with fellow sketchers and share their creations.
