Essex Region – The Essex Region Conservation Bike Tour will welcome its participants virtually this year, allowing for maximum flexibility and participation while safely raising funds to support conservation and trails.
“During these challenging times, access to outdoor spaces have become increasingly important for all of us to maintain our physical and mental health,” says Danielle Breault Stuebing, Director of Communications & Outreach. “We have taken vital steps over the past several months to ensure that Conservation Areas and trails remained open and safe, and have observed a major increase in public visitation. We want to encourage anyone who has been enjoying these spaces to participate in the Virtual Bike Tour and help raise funds for its support.
The Bike Tour will be held September 18-28. Celebrity Cyclists will post recommendations of some of their favourite routes across Windsor & Essex County.
With current public health guidelines limiting public gatherings, the Foundation is hoping that a virtual event will create an opportunity for cyclists of all ages and abilities to discover some of the region’s best places to cycle, and celebrate the benefits and importance of having accessible outdoor spaces.
Registration for the Essex Conservation Virtual Bike Tour is free. Donations and pledges are encouraged, with some great prizes for top fundraisers to be announced. Participants can ride anytime, and any distance. They can choose from our posted routes, or cycle a personal favourite.
