Another worthy cause that is supported by Cyclemania!
Date & Location: August 29, 2010, Ron Kolbus Lakeside Centre (Britannia Park)
In June 2006, OPP Sgt. Greg Stobbart was hit by a truck as he rode his bike on a rural road. He died as a result of his injuries. Each year, in memory of her husband, Eleanor McMahon has organized “Greg’s Ride” to remember Greg, to remind us all to “share the road” and to raise funds for the cycling coalition she founded and leads.
We are excited that the ride has expanded to Ottawa. Your family can enjoy a scenic ride along the NCC Pathway to the Ottawa River Parkway which on Sunday’s is reserved for bikers, walkers, joggers and in-line skaters. Those who prefer a longer distance will enjoy a 60K or 100K ride along the country roads of Kanata and Carp.

A custom designed Share the Road Cycling jersey (Adult) or Organic cotton T-Shirt (Youth)
