Kawartha Lakes Classic Cycling Tour is back, celebrating 20 years

By Lindsay Advocate

If you are looking for something truly exciting to do this August, then look no further because the Kawartha Lakes Classic Cycling Tour is back celebrating their 20th anniversary on Aug. 26. This year they would like to acknowledge the significant contribution of George Skerratt, previous Board Member at A Place Called Home, who was the founder of this event that to this day is the organization’s biggest fundraiser of the year, according to a media release.

This year’s Kawartha Lakes Classic Cycling Tour, presented by Boston Pizza, Lindsay, is an Ontario Cycling Association sanctioned event that has also been endorsed by the Kawartha Cycling Club.

This fun-filled cycling tour features the most breath-taking routes in the Kawartha Lakes painstakingly created by our expert route master.  Whether you are a beginner or an avid cyclist, we have routes to fit everyone’s skill level.  The following routes are offered: 18 km, 33 km, 48 km trail routes and 50 km, 100 km, and 160 km road routes. The event will start and finish at I.E. Weldon Secondary School in Lindsay, Ontario.  A delicious lunch is included to all registered participants thanks to our friends at Boston Pizza – Lindsay.

Jen Lopinski, Fund Development coordinator says, ‘What I love most about this event is that families and friends can team up together to “Fundraise to Ride”, to lower the cost of their own registration fee and to raise even more funds for A Place Called Home.  To me, this is all about having fun and giving back to our community to support the homeless, definitely a win-win! Be sure to register by Aug 10 to receive a free cycling cap and for early bird rates”.

All proceeds from this event will go to A Place Called Home’s emergency shelter to support the homeless in the City of Kawartha Lakes and Haliburton County.
