March 5/10 6:53 am - First Annual The Tour of Bronte Announcement

Posted by Editoress on 03/5/10

Tour of Bronte, April 11th, 2010  

If the idea of bicycle road racing on narrow, winding roads in uncertain weather and an historic setting makes you think of Europe, think again and get ready for the first annual The Tour of Bronte, in Oakville , Ontario.

Taking place in Bronte Creek Provincial Park in Oakville, Ontario, the  road race circuit is a mix of smooth and not so smooth paved and unpaved winding, narrow roads.  It evokes the feel of the historic classic races in northern Europe and modern ProTour retro classics like the Monte Paschi Eroica in Tuscany.

What makes it unique?  Several things… A minimum cash prize list of $5,000, it is only 20 minutes from downtown Toronto, takes place on a closed road circuit (no yellow line rule, ever), half of the course is unpaved, has events for the bike racing neophyte all the way up to and including elite amateur and professional  riders and has a ton of family friendly activities to complete the day.  The children’s farm, playbarn, and walking trails add to the family friendly atmosphere.  Race proceeds will benefit Hamilton Youth Cycling, an organization providing opportunities in Road, Track and Mountain Biking in the greater Hamilton area.

Thank you  to a fantastic sponsorship group including Bronte Creek Provincial Park, Gears Bike shop, Brant Cycle, Main Cycle, Ancaster Cycle, Cramaro Tarpaulin Systems, Nella Cutlery and Frishkorn Audiovisual.

Come and ride, or watch, what is sure to be one of the most interesting races in Canada in 2010.
