Tour De Terra Cotta Cycling Race Supports Community In Bigger Way
New Bikes Donated to Big Brothers Big Sisters
Brampton  (May 27, 2014) –
Le Tour De Terra Cotta is celebrating the 10 th anniversary of its upcoming cycling race by inspiring more young people to take up the sport through the donation of 16 new bicycles to Big Brothers and Big Sisters of Peel.

“We’re excited to share our passion for cycling and its benefits with young people who might not ordinarily have the opportunity,” said Brad Hains, Race Director and a Big Brother. “Each year, we play a greater role in our community. We’re very proud of that.”

Sixteen young people will be equipped with new bicycles, helmets and locks during a special presentation ceremony at the Big Brothers Big Sisters office, at 71 West Drive in Brampton on Monday, June 2 at 7pm. The ceremony will be attended by race organizers and members of Big Brothers Big Sisters of Peel.

The donation was made possible through a joint partnership between Le Tour de Terra Cotta and the Brampton Cycling Club. The bicycles were purchased at a discount from Caledon Hills Cycling.

Proceeds from this year’s race, to be held on Monday, August 4 th , 2014 through the scenic hills of Caledon will also benefit:

  • · Caledon Meals on Wheels
  • · The historic Terra Cotta Community Centre with the completion of its restoration.

“As the race grows in popularity, so does our level of community support,” added Hains. “This year we’re giving back to our community in as many ways as possible.”

Le Tour De Terra Cotta is Ontario’s largest youth cycling race, organized entirely by volunteers. Participation in the race has grown each year, allowing volunteer organizers to support more community organizations. Go to: www.letourdeterracotta.com
