Ask any cyclist and they’ll tell you there’s something special about riding in a smaller community, whether it’s the final stage of the Tour de France which starts in Chateau de Chantilly with a population 11,000, or heading for a weekend ride in a remote area. It’s just one reason why the excitement continues to build for the inaugural PoCo Grand Prix p/b Dominion Lending Centres.
