On Saturday, September 19th, 2015, cyclists took to the roads and trails for the 1st ever Tour de Headwaters cycle event in support of Headwaters Health Care Foundation.

“The support from both the local community and the cycling community has been outstanding!” says Board Director and Event Chair, Tim Peters.

“Initially we had hoped for 50 riders and set a fundraising target of $15,000 net. I am so proud to announce that the event had 227 registered riders and $42,675.33 net proceeds was raised for the purchase of medical equipment at Headwaters Health Care Centre!”

This event took riders through the beautiful Hills of Headwaters and offered a 25K family-friendly trail route, as well as 50K and 101.5 K road routes for the more advanced cyclist.

Participants started and finished at the Lloyd Wilson Centennial Arena in Inglewood and depending on the length of their chosen route, riders rolled through Erin, Alton, Belfountain and even as far up as the Headwaters Health Care Centre itself (the halfway point of the 101.5 K route)

Registered participants paid a fee to ride, but were also encouraged to collect pledges from friends and family.

Sponsors supporting the event included: Bonnefield, Teknion, 101.5 myFM, Cushman-Wakefield, Caledon Cycle, Caledon Ski Club, The Town of Caledon, HS & Partners LLP, Magnum Automation, Serre Financial and Sutton Group.

Special thanks to Holtom’s Bakery, Heatherlea Farms, Tim Hortons, Spirit Tree, and Sysco Foods for keeping our riders well fed and hydrated!
