Angela Meyer has asked me to share the following information about….
Le Tour de Terra Cotta – August 5 2013
Envisioned by Senior Cycling Olympian Ted Webb in 2005, the Tour de Terra Cotta began as a collaborative effort between the community and the Brampton Cycling Club. In 2008, the race became a 100% community-driven event and has grown to include close to 700 racers, attracting participants from across Canada, the United States and internationally.
With participant ages ranging from eight years all the way up to eighty, the Tour de Terra Cotta is a unique event involving all ages within the cycling and local community, helping to promote the sport to future cycling generations. It is also Ontario’s largest youth cycling race and features full road closures (no yellow line rule), electronic timing and age group cash prizes three deep.
Set in the scenic hills of Caledon, spectators and racers alike will have a chance to participate in a “Tour de France” type of experience and enjoy a vendor expo, barbeque and beer garden. The event has become a fundraiser for local community efforts, and this year a portion of the proceeds will go to Caledon Meals on Wheels and to Terra Cotta’s Community Centre restoration project.
