All events and dates subject to change. Please be sure to check the Events Calendar for the most up to date information!
On Saturday afternoon on September 23rd, sixty-one road cyclists from Edmonton Bicycle and Touring Club departed on Georgian Way in Sherwood Park to make their way on RR 231 and TWP 510 to Collingwood Cove on Cooking Lake for an Italian Picnic. This event is patterned after the end of the Italian cycling season and suitably named “The Tour of the Falling Leaves”. This was the 8th successful ride celebrating this event. The picnic was a feast of cheese, grapes, and wonderful Italian goodies courtesy of Charles World (EBTC Safety and Education Co-ordinator) and his wife Julie as well as Lorraine Keast wife of Tour Director Scott Keast. After this picnic stop the Tour continued to baseline TWP 530 and back through the acreages. Scott had placed Italian flag markers at almost every turn. We were capably guided and supported by Terry Fannon, EBTC Vice President and Touring Co-ordinator. Ultimately we all returned to the starting point and from there many of us enjoyed an Italian dinner at Pasta Pantry. I was told by my cycling friend Cleve that this would be a great tour and it certainly was! Mother Nature was very kind that day.
Edmonton’s Food Bank sent a letter of thanks for the 60 kg of food plus $40 donation they received from EBTC as a result of the generosity of members attending the Elk Island ride.
Thanks again to all who participated!
We collected two overflowing containers with food bank contributions ending up with a total of 60 kg of food and $40 cash for which we’re receiving a letter of thanks! So thank you everyone for your generous donations! Special thanks to Aurie for delivering these to the Edmonton Food Bank in addition to helping us wrangle the grills and barbecueing the delicious smokies.
