THE ALBERTA BATTLE OF THE BIKES

Calgarians and Edmontonians have a special relationship.

We often seem like warring siblings: At the end of the day we’re all proud Albertans, but sometimes the fighting, insult hurling and sheer competition takes over. Anyone who has ever attended Oilers - Flames game knows exactly what the Battle of Alberta means.

We’re adding a new element to this ongoing rivalry and we need your help. This ain’t Lanny MacDonald vs Wayne Gretzky but it is an all-out athletic battle for a great cause!

On Sunday, March 14, 1:00-2:00 pm, we are staging Alberta’s first Battle of the Bikes to raise awareness and support for the Enbridge Ride to Conquer Cancer benefiting the Alberta Cancer Foundation. Cyclists will square off in giant spinning classes at Northlands in Edmonton and Eau Claire Mall in downtown Calgary. This really promises to be a spectacle and we’ll be inviting the media to participate and cover each event....because the city with the most participants gets bragging rights.

And there could be more. Currently the Guinness World Record for stationery cycling classes stands at 423 participants. We hope to break this record but it can only happen in one city. There’s no charge to participate and it’s open to everyone. So get as many friends as you can out there on bikes; help claim the victory for your favorite city - and together we’ll raise even more awareness about the Enbridge Ride to Conquer Cancer.

This is a great post. I just had one of the ‘Doh!’ moments and ran back to correct my own site before publishing my comment. You see my own comment form did not match what I’m about to advice. I get less comment than you, so never noticed any problem. I’ve changed it now anyway so here goes.
