For 21 years this festival has existed to honour the memory of Cam Alexander, an avid cyclist who tragically lost his life in a biking accident. This year, the festival is reaching out to the community of Nelson to get back in the saddle. The festival is for competitive and recreational riders. Pump up your bike tires, oil the chain, and make sure your brakes are in order, because there'll be lots of riding.
