There will be an influx of cyclists in the Comox Valley next week, as the local chapter of the Cross-Canada Cycle Tour Society hosts the seventh annual Hub and Spoke cycle rally.

The Hub and Spoke is a gathering CCCTS members.

“The CCCTS is a non-profit organization made up of active adults – mainly retired people who enjoy recreational biking,” said Hub and Spoke co-ordinator Gladys Schmidt.

The Hub and Spoke is expected to draw upwards of 100 cyclists from B.C., Alberta and Washington.

The event begins Monday and wraps up Friday, July 19.

Planned rides include day trips to Denman and Hornby islands, Cumberland and Comox Lakes, Salmon Point and Deep Bay.

“We wanted to make sure that the community is aware when they start seeing 100 cyclists on the road, of the event going on,” said Comox Valley chapter spokesperson Sheila Ord.

The CCCTS Comox Valley chapter meets at the Filberg Centre on Friday mornings for 50-60 kilometre rides throughout the Comox Valley. For more information on the club, call Schmidt at 250-338-8955 or email Ord at bikehikepeople@gmail.com
