Tour de Dayton 2013!

Hello riders!

We are excited to announce that we are beginning the planning process for the third annual Tour de Dayton event.  It’s been very inspiring and empowering to be able to make an impact on the community and see the many Daytonites come out and support our event.  Some pictures and a recap of the prior event will be posted shortly but we just wanted to let you all know that we are still here and beginning to brainstorm about ways to make this year’s event the best ever!

That’s all we have for now.  Let’s just hope that this –

turns into this –

sooner rather than later.

Sincerely,

The fabulous 4 🙂
