Registration is now open for the Essex Region Conservation Bike Tour staling place in late September at  Mettawas Park in Kingsville.

Building off the momentum of last year’s event, the Foundation is hoping to attract more local and regional organizations to enter corporate teams and take part in some friendly competition to raise funds to create a new community entrance along the Cypher Systems Group Greenway.

“Last year, event participants raised nearly $25,000 to support trails in the Place for Life,” says Danielle Breault Stuebing, Director of Communications & Outreach. “This year, we’re aiming to reach a $35,000 goal in order to build a new community entrance along the Cypher Systems Group Greenway at County Rd. 15. The Bike Tour is ideally suited for teams and families interested in health, wellness and team building to explore the region’s fantastic trails while raising funds for additional parking and access locations.” The top fundraising team will be recognized with a tree and plaque prominently featured at the new community entrance.

This year’s event will be held on Saturday, September 28th. Riders will be able to take in all the final sights of summer with the choice of five different routes catering to all skill levels. Road routes will range from approximately 60km – 110km, while Greenway riders can choose from a 15km, 32km or 60 km trail experience. The tour will conclude with a lakefront festival offering delicious local food offerings from Rob’s Culinary Motion and the Hub Windsor. Local bike shops and cycling groups will also be part of the celebration.

Registration is open and available online at
