Pfaff Subaru Rider Rescue Fleet
At Pfaff Subaru, they’re urban adventurers and they’re excited to get out there with you on June 23rd to make sure you’re well supported while you ride in support of Guelph General Hospital and local Rotary projects.
They’re putting three Subaru vehicles out on the Tour de Guelph routes, each with a Pfaff Subaru staff member who will be trained with basic bike tech skills to assist with simple road side fixes. They’ll also be fitted with bike racks in case you need to be taken off the route for any reason.
We’re thrilled about this partnership. Pfaff Subaru’s generous sponsorship has helped us get closer to our fundraising goal, while also helping to make sure you have the best possible experience on your ride!
BDO Family Fun Zone
The BDO Family Fun Zone will be open from 10:00 am – 1:00 pm. You can decorate your bike, there will be face painting and BDO will have a special treat for the kids!
The GPS links below are provided for each road route from 25km to 160km. The 5km/ 10km loop will take place through the Arboretum trails, protected from vehicle traffic.

At Chartwell, they’re about people: in the business of health, happiness and peace of mind. Making People’s Lives BETTER is their purpose, and so we can’t think of a better partner to help us take care of our 160k riders during this year’s ride.

A volunteer with basic bike fix training and tech supplies, provided by Speed River Bicycle, will be on the shuttle to help if needed.
