The Tour of Alberta will come to a dramatic finish in the heart of Downtown Calgary on Sunday, September 8th and Calgarians of all ages are invited to watch and cheer on their favourite riders.

The Tour of Alberta is a professional cycling road race that starts in Edmonton, and makes it way through the province to the finish line in downtown Calgary. The events will be exciting for cycling fans, as world-class cycling teams will be in town for this very special race.

On Sunday between Noon and 6pm there will be a range of festivities at the finish line near James Short Park (Centre Street & 4th avenue SW). Festivities including food trucks, beer gardens, live music, activities for kids, merchandise vendors, big screens to watch the race on, and more!

As a courtesy to drivers, the City of Calgary has posted signs noting road closures for the day. The race takes place on city streets, so there will be no vehicular traffic (except emergency vehicles) on certain roadways between 2pm & 5pm on Sunday, September 8th 2013.
