After eight bike marathons raising about $30,000, the Tour de Gabriola has reached the finish line.
Although they had many other things to do, 35 Gabriolans participated in this year’s ride and the Walk to the Future. They collected $2,000 – our final contribution toward the establishment of our community-owned medical clinic.
Inger Martin, Liz Ciocea, Margaret Litt, and Ron De Cuypere provided support this year, while Linden Boyle (age 1) and Connor Reid (age 7) gave hope for the future.
Thanks once again to the Village Food Market, The Commons, the Flying Shingle, and everyone else who supported the tour over the years .
Like King Arthur, the tour has now retired and will come back only if needed.
