By: JackieThe Tour of Alberta Ride the Road Tour is a public bike ride in Calgary that kicks off the Tour of Alberta. This year’s ride, as in previous years, affords an opportunity to enjoy cycling in a group under traffic-free conditions. Participants will be able to discover cycling and feeling completely safe on Calgary’s roads. Cyclists of all skill levels are encouraged to participate in one or more of the four rides, all of which can be found on the Tour de Nuit website.
Our first ride is the North Spoke ride, assisted by temporary police rolling closures. The second ride is the unescorted South Spoke ride meant for advanced cyclists. Both rides will meet at Stanley Park where the main ride and the children’s ride take place. The main ride of the Ride the Road tour departs Stanley Park, loops through Downtown and then returns to the park. The last ride is a Children’s Tour, in Stanley Park. Stanley Park is the hub of all activity where there is free entertainment, children's activities and food trucks.
