      Thank you for your inquiry into the Provincial Ride! Once participants are registered it is open to sponsorship. Has the person you are trying to sponsor registered for the event yet?

        Yes, and I have now been able to sponsor him. HOWEVER, when will update information be posted to your site or facebook page regarding where the riders are scheduled to arrive in Edmonton. Will it be Cabella’s again? I hope so, as I have been attending these for six or seven years now, and except for when it was held in Devon, the arrival at Cabella’s was by far the best in community support.

          This year the Provincial riders will be coming into a Special Olympics Alberta – Edmonton softball tournament taking place at Argyll Park (88 St and 66 Ave). Unfortunately, Free Our Finest did not coincide with the ride this year.

    Okay, I will be there. It’s just too bad that Free Our Finest did not coincide with the ride this year, as I found the events held at Cabella’s to be excellent in providing awareness, and a fun day for all who attended. When and where will the Edmonton Free Our Finest take place?
