    Is this event always the 3rd Saturday in August?
    Our center is considering adding it to our social and green team activities and we are getting ready to prepare our 2015 calendar.
    Thanks much!

    My family and I participated in the tour this year and my husband and I participated in a tour in the past. We were so very pleased with the volunteer support, the rest stops and all the snacks and goodies. We appreciated the bike helmets from Children’s hospital. The tour took us past my home from when I was a child, so of course we had to make an extra stop there. Thanks again for promoting 2 things I love…biking and our city. Looking forward to the tour next year.
