Tour D’ Vino

Tour de Vino Update

Ok, we are 3 days away from our first event of the year, Tour de Vino. Over 100 riders registered, and we can’t wait! If you are registered and didn’t get an email with all the info, let us know. The Chain Gang is still looking for volunteers, so if you don’t want to ride, let us know if you can lend a hand. Any questions, contact us or check out the events page.

Check in starts at 8:30 am. and lasts until Noon. Please check in at least 1/2 hour prior to riding.

Course will open at 9:30 and you can ride on your own or join one of the group led rides. Group 1 rolls out at 10 am. and will visit Middlecreek then Somerset and back to Nighthawk. Group 2 at Noon to Middlecreek and back to Nighthawk. Group 3 leaves at 12:30 and will ride to Somerset and back.

Please support the Wineries on tour by purchasing your fav bottle (or 2) and we will have it delivered to the finish. Also need to thank Bikesource, who will be at Somerset to help any that need it and Miami County’s own Bicycle Doctor, Dale Dollar who will be set up at Middlecreek.

Great food from the Cajun Cabin will be available for purchase after the ride. Blues group Shannon and the Rythm King Band will perform at Nighthawk starting at 4pm.

Bikes. Wine. Food. Music.
