The 2018 Route:
This year’s main ride 30 miles long and we are also offering a shorter, more kid friendly ride that’s about 10 miles long. The terrain includes small hills with some short, steep rises. Mountain bikes or road bikes with wide tires are strongly recommended due to loose gravel. Participants will be sharing the road with cars. While we recommend the Tour for children over 14 years old, children under 14 should be experienced road riders and must be accompanied by an adult as we are sharing the roads with vehicles. A map of the final route will be provided at registration on September 16th. Please arrive for registration on September 16th between 8:30 - 9:30 AM for the 30-mile route and 10:00-10:30 AM for the 10 mile route.
