Today, the Mayor of Victoria, Dean Fortin proudly declared August 10th Ryder Hesjedal Day! This declaration was just some of the gratitude expressed by the city during the Ryder Hesjedal Homecoming Festival. Zed Wheel’s sponsored ProCityRacing road team, along with other local racing and riding clubs were asked to participate in the Ryder Hesjedal Homecoming parade, a bicycle caravan from the Marriot Hotel in downtown Victoria to the Centennial Square at Victoria City Hall. The day was sunny and warm and everyone cheered as Ryder was escorted to City Hall. The parade rolled out at 3:30pm and worked its way up Government Street then left onto Pandora to the Centennial Square, where CTV and other media were waiting for Ryder, his wife and parents to arrive.
