The TCT25 Top 3 completing the posted trail cycle and hike tours while celebrating the 25th anniversary of the Trans Canada Trail receiving awards and sponsored prizes by MEC and TREK Bikes are: Jon Nightingale, Joette Heuft, and Daryl Sturdy.  All three chose to do the hike excursions with Jon hiking a minimum of 422 km while completing 38 of the trail tours.  The challenge was to complete 25 bike or walking tours.  We are pleased that many of you registered and got started on these trail tours.  All took on the challenge by inviting others along.  We are aware many others took in the outings without registering.  Hopefully you will continue enjoying more of them.  The same trail tours and additional ones can now be found as Loops and Linear Touiring on this website.  Link here for a full lsiting of sponsors and partners.
