The Canada South Coast Bike Tour takes place Saturday September 29th and there is still plenty of time to register.
“Participants can register online right up until September 25th,” advises Danielle Breault Stuebing, ERCA’s Director of Communications and Education. “As well, we will accept registrations on the day of the event. We’d just recommend arriving at your starting location a bit early if you plan to register on the day of the ride.”
The Canada South Coast Bike Tour includes three cycling events across the region with routes available for every age and fitness level. The event will include a 15 kilometre family ride and 42 kilometre intermediate ride along the safe Chrysler Canada Greenway trail, with the 15km event beginning and ending at Schwab Farm Community Entrance on the Arner Towline. The 42kilometre intermediate ride will begin and end at the Harrow Community Entrance.
The 106 kilometre advanced road ride will begin and end at the Ciociaro Club of Windsor and stretch along beautiful urban and rural roads. Rest stops with water, snacks and washrooms will be available approximately every 20 kilometres along this route. All funds raised will be used to help construct the Essex-Amherstburg Greenway, another heart-healthy trail for the Essex Region. All routes will lead to the Kingsville Train Station Community Entrance/Mettawas Station Restaurant for lunch, which is included in the registration fee. Costs range $25 – $30/participant, with a family maximum of $75. There is no charge for children in bike trailers.
