  1. What is involved to become a Point of Interest on a Tour de Dayton?

    • tourdedayton says:

      Thank you for your interest! We plan Tour de Dayton cycling events annually, and we move the event around every year. We do not have a plan for next year, and so I am not sure yet where we will be riding. We generally plan a 10 mile ride around Dayton, and try to include points of interest that are cultural, historical, educational, recreational, and other types of local Dayton “gems.”

      What we expect from a Point of Interest is that they will be open for the duration of the ride (typically 9am to 2pm on a Saturday), that they have a point of contact that we can communicate with as needed, and that they do something to show our riders what makes them unique. Many of our points of interest give tours of their facilities, but what a point of interest chooses to do is entirely up to them. We want them to shine and show the riders what makes their spot a unique and interesting addition to the culture and community of Dayton.

      I hope this answers your question, and we can certainly keep in mind your interest as we plan future events. Also, how did you hear about us?

2012 Registration

The link to pre-register has been discontinued as our team wanted to make sure we had enough time to compile all of the information. 

If you were unable to pre-register that is OK!  You can register the day of the event (August 4th, 2012) starting at 9AM in Jackson-Burns Park!

Can’t wait to see you all on Saturday!

Thanks,

The Fabulous 4 :)

Past Event Photos

Tour de Dayton 2011 was our first year – and it sure was fun!

Starting at Dayton Dragon’s Fifth Third Field, riders went to the Dayton Fire Station, Dayton Art Institute, Riverview Park, Willis Bing Davis Art Center, Paul Laurence Dunbar House, Dayton Aviation Heritage National Historical Park, Dayton RTA and Cultural Center, Carillon Historical Park, America’s Packard Museum, Patterson Commons Park and back to Dragon’s Stadium to close the ride. The event was 10 miles long and included multiple water stops. The first 50 registered riders were given tickets to the Dragon’s game that day and we had a ton of support from local businesses to have a nice raffle, including 4 bikes!

The weather was gorgeous and we have some great photos from the event.

Thanks to all of our volunteers, sponsors, City of Dayton (for being so cool), and our riders for coming out!

See you at this year’s ride!

Lea
