April 15, 2011 (Toronto, ON) – On Thursday night some of the finest athletes, coaches, volunteers and sponsors gathered to celebrate Ontario’s finest at Ontario place in Toronto. Bob Woods is from Almonte, Ontario and has been involved in cycling for the past 20 years, with the majority of it hosting events.
