SFC Mountain Bike Tour is back
by Randy Pascal
For the first time in three years, the Mountain Bike Tour will be included as a component of the Sudbury Fitness Challenge. The news was
passed along earlier this week, courtesy of Walden Mountain Bike Club president Rob St Marseille.
The Mountain Bike Tour, which includes races covering a kids event, as well as distances of 4kms, 8kms and 16 kms, is set for (Sunday) July 26th at the
Naughton Ski/Bike Trails.
This timing will make the MBT the sixth stop in the seven event series, squeezed between the following:
Sofie Manarin Nickel Loppet
Took place on February 8th at Laurentian University
Sudbury Rocks Marathon
May 10th - Tom Davies Square
Sudbury Canoe Marathon
June 21st - Sudbury Canoe Club
Ian McCloy Island Swim
July 19th - Lake Nepahwin (Laurentian Beach)
August 9th - Moonlight Beach
October 12th - Naughton Trails
The Mountain Bike Tour had been cancelled for the past two summers as members of the WMBC were kept busy for several months, organizing Canada Cup
mountain bike races at the same venue.
