the causes

The primary aim of the Three Port Tour is to showcase Elgin County as a tourist
and cycling destination. Any proceeds from the tour go to two local initiatives;
the Forest City Velodrome and the Environmental Leadership Program.

FOREST CITY VELODROME


The Forest City Velodrome is an indoor cycling track in London, Ontario - one of three in North America. Opened in 2005, this facility and its programs are run entirely by volunteers and donations. It is the home to many youth programs, as well as recreational and race training rides. On Saturday nights it stages the most thrilling indoor track cycle races in the world.

ENVIRONMENTAL LEADERSHIP PROGRAM


The Environmental Leadership Program is offered at local East Elgin Secondary School and covers a broad range of subjects related to ecology. The class is often conducted outdoors and students participate in co-op work, earn safety certifications and go on a number of camping trips. In this highly experience-based course the students learn respect, responsibility, dependability, work ethic and trust.
