If you're out and about this weekend, keep an eye out for more cyclists than usual.

The annual Enbridge Tour Alberta for Cancer is back in person to raise vital funds benefiting the Alberta Cancer Foundation 

The event will take place on Saturday, July 23 and Sunday, July 24 with riders covering up to 200 kilometres through Southern Alberta.

A thousand participants are expected to gather at the starting line at the Calgary Polo Club near De Winton.

It'll also act as the finish line each day.

Riders will have a choice between two different routes, one close to 100 kilometres and another close to 70 kilometres with routes changing each day to allow for more exploring.

Participants will be going through Okotoks, Black Diamond, Turner Valley and Millarville at different times throughout their journeys.

There is still a virtual component for those who wish to participate and fundraise by walking, running, or cycling virtually. 

The Enbridge Tour Alberta for Cancer (formerly known as the Ride to Conquer Cancer) is Canada’s largest peer-to-peer fundraising event. Since 2009, the tour has raised more than $84 million to support innovative cancer research, care, and treatment across the province. 

They've already hit the $3.5 million mark on their way to a goal of $4 million.
