Bicycle Sport is happy to be on board with our friends from Tour de Turns this weekend! Look for us at the start providing pre-ride mechanical support for the event, and we’ve ponied up TWO bikes for the event raffle! The weather’s looking good and so is registration, says our man Bob Carter.
Tour de Turns benefits Friendship Trays, and online registration ends tomorrow. Here’s the link: http://www.tourdeturns.org Yes, there’s day of registration, and here’s what else Bob told us riders can expect:
We are moving the start and finish to Carmel Road Neighborhood Park (next to the Church at Charlotte). Our new location affords plenty of close parking in the church parking lot adjacent to the Park.
Because of the park setting, we are offering a Cyclo-Cross Clinic for Youth 9-18 years.
We will have a Beer Garden selling a special Tour de Turns craft beer, in addition to other craft beer favorites from Triple C Brewery.
This year will feature a catered Lunch from Friendship Catering that is included in Registration Fees.
KOM/QOM Individual & Team Hill Climbing Competition…$1500 in total gift certificate prizes
Live Music…….7 member band, female soloist, 3 member jam group….
This event is one of the very best benefits rides in the Carolinas, offering 15, 25, 37 & 62 mile routes thru beautiful, shaded streets of South Charlotte.
Even if you do not ride, we have a Virtual Rider category where your Registration gets you Lunch, T-shirt and the “Festival Atmosphere”
Registration is done thru…bikereg.com/tourdeturns…Our Event Notes page has lots more details about the rides, activities and merchandise for sale.
Bottom line, is we offer…Fun, Fitness and Fundraising for the wonderful Mission of Friendship Trays.
