MONTREAL, Oct. 10, 2013 /CNW Telbec/ - Bell today announced the Official Route 
and National Partners for Clara's Big Ride for Bell Let's Talk, the national 
bicycle tour around Canada by Clara Hughes in support of mental health.

Beginning March 14, 2014, and spanning 110 days, Clara's Big Ride will cover 
12,000 kilometres through every province and territory, visiting 95 
communities and connecting Canadians to the cause of mental health at the 
grassroots level.

"I can't wait to ride to communities in every corner of the country, meeting 
Canadians where they live and talking to them about how together we can make a 
real and positive difference in the nation's mental health," said Clara. "From 
Saguenay to Saskatoon, Kuujjuaq to Cranbrook, Fredericton to Fort McPherson 
and everywhere in between, mental illness directly impacts 1 in 5 Canadians 
and affects all of us in some way. I'm looking forward to sharing stories with 
people in these communities and so many more as we fight the stigma around 
mental illness and drive awareness and action in mental health."

Official Route
Clara's Big Ride kicks off in Toronto on March 14, 2014, rolling east through 
Ontario, Québec and Atlantic Canada, before returning to Northern Québec and 
heading northwest across Nunavut, the Northwest Territories and Yukon. 
Crossing the Arctic Circle on the legendary Dempster Highway, Clara will 
journey south to Vancouver Island and head east through British Columbia, 
Alberta, Saskatchewan, Manitoba and Northern Ontario before finishing her ride 
on Canada Day, July 1, 2014, in Ottawa.
