Bike RidersThe Muddy Waters 100 cycling event takes place tomorrow (August 9) and for the first time, Habitat for Humanity is a partner. The one-day event has the city shut down numerous streets to make way for cyclists of all ages and skill levels on major urban routes. Ride distances vary from 100 miles, 100km, 60km and 25km, which all benefit a great cause.

Participating this year is a gentleman from Pennsylvania who has a goal to reach. Al Emma has travelled across North America with the determination of cycling a century ride (100 miles) in each state and province he visits. Al will be very close to reaching his goal after Sunday.

The action begins at 9 a.m. and will start and end at The Forks.

City councillor Justin Swandel and Hot 103’s Ace Burpee will also be on hand.
