DQ Cycling Cup Seeking Youth Riders
     August 30, 2006 — Ken Trenholm

The first-ever Dairy Queen Summerside Cycling Cup is taking place on
September 2.

The event will feature lap bicycling around the Evangeline School
asphalt track and the Organizer hopes it will bring out dozens of youth
5 years and older to participate.?

"The goal of the event is simple,"? says Ken Trenholm, organizer of the
event and Founder of the Summerside Cycling Club.

"While the aspiration of these riders is not likely to be the next
Lance Armstrong," admits Trenholm, "the goal of this event is to
introduce kids to a fun activity they can be involved with their entire
life."

The DQ Cycling Cup is open to anyone from 5 years of age with
categories from 5 years of age to 60 years of age.

The event will also help kids learn the proper way to wear a helmet.

Registration occurs at the Evangeline School track in Urbanville at
9:15 a.m.? There is no cost for riders under 17 years of age; riders 17
years or over there is a $2.00 fee.

The DQ Cycling Cup is but one step to introducing youth to the
organized bicycling being organized by the Summerside Cycling Club.?

In May 2007, three youth cycling development programs will be launched
in Summerside and looking to span the Island.? These programs will
feature the internationally acclaimed Sprodkids cycling model that is
currenting running in 18 countries.? The Club will also continue to
offer a series of four cycling cups in 2007.
