Come ride the Tour de Parks 2015 on 22 March, 2015
Here’s a great early spring 2015 cycling opportunity that also supports a great cause – ride the sixth annual Tour de Parks 2015 on Sunday, 22 March. We hope to exceed last year’s record 635 riders who pedaled 15, 37, or 62 mile routes along The Legacy Trail and through many Sarasota County Parks. It’s a ride, not a race, so pick one of the distance and start training! All three routes begin and end at the historic Venice Train Deport in Venice, FL. The $40 registration fee includes a T-shirt, breakfast, lunch, rest stops stocked with snacks, beverage, rest rooms, and SAG support. All proceeds support The Legacy Trail extension/enhancements efforts. For more details and a printable registration, see the Tour de Parks Tab on the Left. You can also register on-line at Active.com.
