Experience cycling the rural beauty around Kitchener Waterloo and better yet spend the weekend in our beautiful community. Chances are good that you’ll ride by Old Order Mennonites driving horse and buggies on their way to Sunday services. The clip-clop of hooves will briefly drown out the zing of bike chains connecting you to this unique region of Ontario. You’ll ride past historic buildings in the small, quaint towns of the region.
Proceeds from the 4th Annual Tour de Waterloo will support cancer and mental health care programs in the community.
The Grand River Regional Cancer Centre (GRRCC) at Grand River Hospital is one of the top rated cancer centres in Ontario, providing high-quality care services to residents of Waterloo Region, Wellington County and surrounding areas with timely access to cancer treatment.
