TOUR DE BELGRAVIA! Sunday, June 28th 2020, 2:00pm – 3:30pm

We have planned a fun, safe, and physical-distancing-friendly event to celebrate our amazing community and the arrival of this wonderful warm weather!
You are invited to participate in one of three ways…

1. Riding your bicycle, scooter, rollerblades, wheelchair, skateboard, stroller etc. (anything with wheels that is safe on the sidewalk) along the designated route. Decorate your preferred mode of transportation in advance and wear a creative costume of your choice – and you could even win a PRIZE!
Take a quick break at the Photo Pit Stop (located in the parking lot at Belgravia School) where a pro photographer will take a fun picture of you and your group members! Digital and print copies will be available upon request.

Register for the event by contacting Jeanette (mib@belgraviaedmonton.ca)
before Friday, June 26th, 2020.

2. Sharing encouraging and inspiring messages and images with sidewalk chalk art along the designated route – please do this BEFORE the day of the event. You can also create and post supportive signs on your own property if you live along the event route.

3. Finding a safe and physically-distanced location anywhere along the route to spectate and cheer participants during the event!
If you wish to be a part of the judging panel for awarding prizes, you can cast your votes for each award category via email (director2@belgraviaedmonton.ca) or by paper ballot in a labelled box located at the BCL hall. You will also be eligible to win a special draw prize, as thanks for helping us with your vote!

Everyone who is participating in the event is asked to adhere to AHS guidelines:

There is no official start or end point to the event route, and participants can choose to enter and exit at the location and time of their choice.
There is no specified location for spectators, and they can choose to observe at the time and place of their choice.

See you outside and active at the TOUR DE BELGRAVIA!
