    Premier McGuinty kicks off first-ever Tour de Greenbelt

    TORONTO, Sept. 19 /CNW/ - The Greenbelt Foundation is pleased to kick off
the first-ever Tour de Greenbelt on Saturday, September 20. Premier Dalton
McGuinty will be on hand to celebrate the beginning of the four day fresh air
festival on wheels taking place September 20, 21 and September 27, 28. The
first ride of the tour begins at the Toronto Zoo where Premier McGuinty;
TVOKids' Enviro Girl; Raymond Cho, Chair of Toronto Zoo Board of Management;
and Foundation President Burkhard Mausberg will lead the way for what promises
to be an exciting and fun-filled event promoting Ontario's Greenbelt. Response
to the Tour has been fantastic. With some days already sold out!
    On your mark. Get set. Meander. The Tour is a great opportunity for
recreational riders and families to explore the beautiful countryside. Riders
experience and explore the Greenbelt, its communities and all they have to
offer - local food, clean water, fresh air and, of course, the breath-taking
landscapes.
