The ride begins at the Forks CN Stage on Sunday, June 12 at 2:00 pm. Please arrive at 1:45 pm for event check in, to meet your ride leader and get your ticket to prepaid ice cream. The ride will finish up at the Forks again by 4:00 pm.

2022 Tour de Glace ice cream shops include:

  1. Sub Zero Ice Cream, 298 Jamison Ave
  2. Milksmith, 651 Corydon Ave
  3. Dug & Betty’s Ice Creamery, 309 Des Meurons St

The 3-stop group will have an average pace of 15-20 km/hour over the course of 22 km. The 2-stop group will have an average pace of 10-15 km/hour over the course of 15 km. The 2-stop group is open to all youth under 18 who are able to maintain the group average pace. Ice cream stops for the 2-stop group include Sub Zero and Dug & Betty’s.

Participant discretion is advised: This tour is packed with dairy and possibly nut-containing calories. Unfortunately we cannot offer allergen-friendly alternatives. If you wish to participate without actually eating at each stop, or wish to register with a friend, there is a registration option for $0 tag-alongs (plus $3.50 non-member fee, if applicable). All riders must register for insurance purposes, however, if young children are in a bucket seat or carrier they are not required to register unless they want their own ice cream at each stop.

Please note that all riders who are not members of the Manitoba Cycling Association will be required to pay a $3.50 fee as part of registration. If you would prefer to become a member for the 2022 season, take a look at the MCA Membership Page and reach out to Twila if you have any questions. To be crystal clear: if you are particiapating as a $0 tag-along but you are not a member of the MCA, you will still need to pay the $3.50 insurance fee. If you have a child in a carrier, they do not need to pay the $3.50 fee. All “butts on bikes” need insurance coverage to participate.
