The Tour de Delta was introduced to the cycling community in 2001 with the inaugural event attracting
more than 200 cyclists from across Canada, the U.S. and New Zealand. Great weather, challenging courses
and enthusiastic spectators, the Tour de Delta has been a wonderful success.
The grueling ROAD RACE is a mass start event which encompasses the communities of North Delta,
Ladner and Tsawwassen. The race route, which was designed by Olympian Brian Walton, and local cyclist
Jamie Davidson, is a true test of endurance for any top cyclist.
The Annual Tour de Delta, held mid July, exceeds expectations with the 700 metre HILL CLIMB, up Centre
Street in North Delta which involves racers being set-off the line two at a time. This race design creates
a very competitive atmosphere as cyclists compete against each other and the clock.
The MAYOR’S RALLY is a non-competitive bike rally for the entire community. The family oriented bike
ride departs from all three communities of Delta with a course that takes riders along the scenic Boundary
Bay dyke.
The fast and furious CRITERIUM in the historic fishing village of Ladner excites all who attend as cyclists
navigate the tight fast corners of the downtown core reaching speeds of up to 60 km an hour.

Avoid the "clothesline". When your leashed dog is sniffing bushes on one
side of the trail and you are standing on the other - a bike rider can crash,
your arm and wrist can be severely jerked, and your dog can be pulled right
into the middle of the pile of falling bike and rider.

Most livestock can be spooked by dogs. If you meet a horse-rider, yield by
stepping off the trail with your leashed dog and allowing them to pass. Do
the same for cyclists, they can be even less predictable. Since some people are
afraid of dogs, yield to other hikers as well. Your dog should be under total
control.

• Courtesy
Treat other trail users with courtesy.
Cyclists, users of in-line skates, scooters and skateboards; alert people as you
approach: call out "passing on your left", "passing on your right”. User conflicts
can lead to trail closures, an unnecessary measure if people cooperate and
practice the "3 C's".
When passing other recreationists, steady your horse and give the hiker or
cyclist clear instruction on how you would like them to stand clear. For example,
ask them to stand on the low side of the trail, and to continue chatting.

The Boundary Bay dyke
was Delta’s first, built in
1892. All mainland dykes
on three sides of Delta are
maintained by the
Corporation of Delta for
farmland, resident and
industry flood protection.
61 km of dyke protect
approximately 15,000 ha
of land from daily river and
ocean flooding up to 1.3
m deep. The dykes have
flood boxes and drainage
pump stations that
combine with the inland
water system of ditches
and pipes to minimize the
risk of flooding, allow for
irrigation needs, and
preserve the environment.
