Is the TDA a Charity Ride?

The TDA began as a fun group ride to celebrate all things cycling and soon developed into an EBTC fundraising event. When Revolution Cycle assumed the event, the goal was to be NON-PROFIT. Volunteer Societies and Charity groups receive honorariums for their services provided. Without these wonderful volunteers the TDA could not continue to be the best one-day ride in Alberta. If you are a member of a group that would be interested in volunteering please fill out our contact form.

What are the distances?

They have changed over the years but we strive for a family ride, a half century, a full century and a metric century. In 2016 we have a 5km family ride, 57.34km (50km), 105.63km(100km) and 168.63km (160km)

Why this Road/Route?

We strive to find the most scenic, safe, and fun route as possible. A team of experienced ride leaders sit down over the winter to find the best routes. We will not please everyone all the time. We try to find roads that do not need RCMP involvement to close as we are not racing against the clock and have time to follow rules of the road. 

Can I ride a tandem recumbent mountain bike tricycle?

You can ride whatever bike you want.

I have question(s) that are not here! What do I do?

Don’t worry! You can ask one of our team members through our contact form.
