The 'Ride the Road' tour on Sunday June 5th is an on-street, closed-road bicycle tour that highlights the need for dedicated bicycle infrastructure to encourage 'more people cycling more often'. The tour starts in Tuxedo or Millrise and Stanley Park. More info from Tour de Nuit Society:
This year we kick off Alberta’s Environment Week as we usher in a new season. Experience Calgary like you never have before. Traverse the city cycling on roads in complete safety on your bike! It only happens once a year. The 'Ride the Road' tour is a hub and spoke ride modelled on London, England's Skyride. This is billed as a commuter event and is not a race - no one is left behind.
Calgary Police Services provide a rolling closure to give participants the experience of cycling in complete safety on major roads. You can ride all 25 km or customize the length. The proceeds are used by the Calgary tour de nuit Society to offset the substantial costs of mounting an event of this size.
Come out and promote the substantial benefits of cycling to: public health, the environment, traffic congestion and the social fabric of our neighbourhoods.
