Sunday, the seventh annual Ryder Hesjedal’s Tour de Victoria takes place starting from the front of the legislature.
There are three distances that riders can take in, the longest is a 140-kilometre ride and is challenging due to the rolling nature of the course.
Over 1500 cyclists are expected to take to the rolling-closed streets starting at 7:00 am.
There is also a 90K and a 45K ride.
There will be traffic delays throughout the city. For the first half of Sunday, it would be best to not get into your car – leave it at home, however, the specific areas where delays are happening are published on the ride’s website.
For example, moderate delays of up to 20 minutes between 9:30 am and 1:30 pm on Hwy 17 the Pat Bay Highway at Sayward Road. Highway 14 (Sooke Road) between Happy Valley and Glen Lake roads as well as Veterans Memorial Parkway between Highway 1 and 14.
There will be further delays.
The Tour de Victoria ride is not a race, however, the event is timed and certain segments along the route are timed, for example, a classic section of Munn Road in the Highlands, which is a tough climb.
