The Cambridge Tour de Grand is an annual recreational bicycle event which was first held in 1998 to celebrate the 25th anniversary of the formation of the City of Cambridge. The event was organized by Don Rope, members of the Cambridge Trails Advisory Committee and other volunteers. The turnout of over 500 cyclists on a rainy Sunday morning, to ride one of three routes, showed there was great interest by local cyclists in such an event. As a result, it was decided to hold the Cambridge Tour de Grand on an annual basis.

Help Us Help Others. The Cambridge Tour de Grand, with your help, would like to give back to our community, both locally and internationally, by supporting some worthwhile valuable charitable organizations. All donations over $20 will receive a charitable tax receipt. See full details under the tab Fundraising.

Each year the number of cyclists participating has increased substantially with almost 3,000 cyclists riding in the Cambridge Tour de Grand last year.

Eleven routes from 10 km up to 160 km, including the 50 and 70 km gravel and trail routes, attract cyclists of all ages and abilities.

The Cambridge Tour de Grand has enjoyed continued success due to the hard work of a large group of volunteers assisted by the staff from the City's Community Services Department. The organizing committee of the Cambridge Tour de Grand is comprised of fourteen volunteers who work throughout the year to ensure the success of the event. Ride day volunteers number over 275.

The philosophy of the Cambridge Tour de Grand is to promote cycling within our community and to allow cyclists of all ages and abilities to have a safe and enjoyable day of cycling in our City and the surrounding countryside.

The success of the event was evidenced by the selection of the Cambridge Tour de Grand as the 2013 Sports Organization of the Year.
