Crampton’s Market is signalling the start of their season by hosting a little party this afternoon after a guided bike tour nearby.

The public is encouraged to bring their bikes to FortWhyte Alive for guided tours at 1 p.m. and 2 p.m., and then follow their leader down the new Bishop Grandin greenway bike path to Crampton’s Market.

The market at 1765 Waverley Street will offer a massage therapist to give leg flushes, Pro Care athletic therapy will be teaching all about cycling specific stretches, the Wrench will be on site to give rider’s a spring tune up, and CAA will be testing to make sure riders’ bike tire pressure is up to par.

Local food producers will be handing out samples to hungry bike riders all day.

The CBC Live Right Now tent will also be there to take sign ups for their fit challenge.
