Early registration saves for Saint Lazare Cyclo-tour
Those wanting to save some money while participating in a regional cycling event that’s always a hit for all have until May 17 to take advantage of early registration prices for the Saint-Lazare Cyclo-Tour, a family-friendly, noncompetitive bicycle ride through the streets of Saint-Lazare.
Organizers say early birds registering for the ride will save 50 percent off the regular price if they register before May 18.
The Cyclo-Tour will take place Sunday, June 2, at Bédard park in Saint-Lazare. Participants can register online by going to the Town’s website at: www.ville.saintlazare.qc.ca/enligne and clicking on the Cyclo-Tour section. Registration is also accepted at the Community Centre, 1301, rue du Bois. For more information, contact the Community Life and Recreation department at 450 424-8000 ext. 220. borders the Bordelais Bog on one side and is surrounded by homes in SaintLazare’s Saddlebrook development on the other. Saint-Lazare mayor Robert Grimaudo says people mistakenly thought the Town wanted to buy the lake, when the intention was always to save the old growth forest surrounding the lake. The land is currently owned by a local land developer who had planned to build more homes in the forest. The Town currently has a reserve to expropriate the land. The expropriation plan included turning the land into a nature park, much like the Town had done with the bog, which boasts a series of wooden walking paths and information placards listing many of the plants, birds and more which can be found in the bog. Both the bog and the Dunes Lake forest are popular with walkers, pet owners, schools and people who want to enjoy the area’s forests, walking trails and sandy beach.
Saint-Lazare’s town council was expected to announce the fate of the Dunes Lake forest issue last night after more than 900 people signed a register against the purchase.
