gf-tdegrand-p5-newAs part of the Cambridge communityI’m very pleased to announce that Hoyes, Michalos & Associates Inc. will once again be a proud sponsor of this year’s Cambridge Tour de Grand to be held Sunday, June 12th, 2016.

The Cambridge Tour de Grand is an annual recreational bicycle event. I’ve enjoyed cycling for many years and this will be my 5th Tour De Grand.

It’s great to be able to lend some support as it’s a great family day and community event for the City of Cambridge.

This year there will be nine courses. The courses are designed to challenge every skill level.  Choose the nice and easy 10km route along the Grand River, or tackle the monster 160km route to feel like a pro!

Last year it poured with rain the whole morning, but I still managed to work my way around the 40km course. It was very wet, but everyone still had a great time and spirits were high. Let’s hope the weather is a little nicer this year!tour de grand cambridge howard hayes

Either way, whatever route you choose, I can say that it’s a great day for families of Cambridge and the surrounding areas.  The bike routes take you through some of the best scenery Cambridge has to offer.

Proceeds from the Cambridge Tour de Grand are used to fund the Helmets for Kids program.  You can register for the event this year by visiting the website at

Hope to see you there for a fun day out!
