Delta, BC – The City of Delta today announced a major partnership giving Beedie presenting sponsorship rights for the 2018 Tour de Delta. The event will now be known as the Tour de Delta presented by Beedie.
The partnership marks the beginning of a new sponsorship era for the Tour de Delta as Beedie is the first presenting sponsor in the event’s 18-year history.
“Having Beedie on board as presenting sponsor is exciting and significant for the Tour de Delta,” said City of Delta Mayor Lois E.
