Tour de Franklin Charity Bike Ride

Sunday, April 30, 2017


We are gearing up for the 2017 Tour de Franklin with plans to make it the best one yet!  We will be back at the High School again this year with the same off road events at the Canal that we had last year.  

Please consider registering early as we can only guarantee a Tour t-shirt for participants who register by April 7.  We hope that you will also do some fundraising for the Food Bank to help your neighbors in need.  You can become a Silver Circle Rider by raising $150 for the Food Bank, or a Gold Circle Rider by raising $300.  All Silver Circle and Gold CIrcle Riders will receive a special t-shirt as a sign of our appreciation for their fundraising efforts.  Your registration fee is included in the total amount needed to reach this level, so it's not that much more, but means so much to the Food Bank and the people we serve.

Did you know that we can use your financial donations to buy food at a lower price than you can in order to feed your neighbors who are in need?  For $150 you can make sure that 14 families receive a bag of food (plus extras!) from the Food Bank.  


Stay tuned for more information including a revised 40 mile route that avoids the big uphill climb!
