GWTA 2018

By Jim & Mary Boate

Hi 3C,

First let me say thanks to all the volunteers that made the GWTA 2018 first day afternoon break the success that it was.  Every time we get involved with putting on a lunch or water break I am blown away by the amount of volunteers and organizations that step up to make this the best stop the riders will have while on their adventure journey to the QC border.  Without you this would not happen. Your enthusiasm while at directional turns or manning the break location means so much to the riders as they make their way across our community and I know each and every one of them sends their praise for a great break.

The GWTA organizers also say that when the cycling community of Clarington says they will host a break, they know it will be a 10+ they give a sigh of relief and move on to the next challenge.

Take a look at the list of organizations the helped make this break the success it was
