August 1, 2005 – Courtesy of Canada’s only stage winner in Le Tour de France will be at the starting line of Tour For Kids. Steve Bauer is taking time away from his famous cycling tour business to voice his encouragement as we all set out to Ride Somewhere Meaningful. Not only has Steve Bauer offered up his time, he has offered a TOUR PACKAGE from Steve Bauer Bike Tours, as the award for the top fundraiser for this years event! And get this, Paul Devries from Energy Savings Corp. has matched Steve’s offer and is offering the same award to the individual with the Most Number of Individual Pledges for this years tour.
