Each cyclist contributes at least $10,000 towards the cause. The ride is expected to raise about $450,000 for the Hospital.
Welcome to Muskoka George, Steve, Chris and the Gang…I am sad that I can’t be there to cheer your on…as I am racing in the Bracebridge Olympic Distance Triathlon at 9:00 am. Your Tour de Blue route is taking you down Muskoka Road 13 (Southwood Road), and then down to the Rama area. Sadly, the Bracebridge Triathlon travels west along Hwy 118 – it would have been quite a thrill if the Triathlon, travelling along hwy 118 could have crossed paths. At any rate, I will be sort of on the same road at the same time as you!!! Ride on – and Thanks for coming to Muskoka and support the Markham Stouffville Hospital.
