Tour de Guelph

Tour de Guelph

Join us June 25th, 2023 for the annual Tour de Guelph. Come Ride with other Guelph Cycling Club members or your family and friends in any of the multiple routes and rides. Check out our ride posting for this event.

What does it cost to enter?

$50 is the base entry fee. You are welcome to fund raise beyond that for the benefit of the Guelph General Hospital and the Rotary projects of Guelph. If you’ve entered into any events lately, you’ll quickly realize this is a bargain for what you get!

Registration for the event

Guelph Cycling Club has a ‘Registration Team’ for Tour de Guelph. You can join this ‘Team’ when you sign up to attend the event. The TdG registration page is not great. When selecting the ride length you wish to register for, please choose the Registration Type that is titled Fundraise-to-Ride which has “Fundraise $50.00” beside it in the Price Column (this will get you a tax receipt, ‘Free Wheeler’ does not). You can still fundraise/donate beyond $50 if you wish. All of our entry fees and fundraising will be associated with the GCC Team and will show our collective dollar amount raised.

What is Tour de Guelph?

Tour de Guelph is a fund raiser for the Guelph General Hospital and local projects through the Rotary Clubs of Guelph South and Guelph Trillium. More info can be found at Tour de Guelph.

What do you get?

You get a great cycling event, pre, post activities and food. You also get the satisfaction of knowing that your money is being used for really great causes!

What is the cycling like?

These routes use the roads of Wellington County and Halton Region. Police will be assisting at many of the major road crossings. There will be family-friendly 5 and 10 km routes through the Village by the Arboretum as well. You can find all the Tour de Guelph routes here.

How do you follow a route?

There are signs throughout the routes and there are paper and electronic maps as well. GCC helped TdG choose ‘Ride With GPS’ for their route hosting so you can now load routes into a bike computer. This is another awesome opportunity to figure out how to load a route into your fancy bike computer and have it tell you when and where your next turns are. Do it and quit relying on everyone else to know the route! Details on how to do that can be found here.
