Event Information
Scenic road tour featuring a 17 mile family fun ride, 35 mile and 65 mile road tour. Ride along and experience our scenic countryside and settle into some hometown cycling hospitality when you return from your ride here in Beautiful Bartow. Registration is at 7am with an 8am ride start. Main Street Bartow, Inc. and Bartow Cycling Events is dedicated to promoting the quality of life in Bartow using various cycling events which currently include, the Bloomin' Bike Ride in March, and the Tour de Tow in September. Our objective is to promote Bartow as an active community that fosters and encourages a healthy lifestyle and a love of cycling. We want to THANK Road & Trail Bicycles, and owner Jason Brown, for 10 years of Sponsorship Support for both the Bloomin Bike Ride, and the Tour de Tow! Bob and I can't thank you enough Jason and Team at Road & Trails! Jason is our featured cyclist on this years promo material and t-shirt. This year's T-SHIRTS run pretty true to size, so order accordingly, we will not be able to change sizes the day of event. RIDE SUPPORT! Yes, every route has a SAG vehicle following to be there in case you need us. It will have drinks, snacks, tubes and a pump. Everyone will receive a ride map that will have a number on it for emergencies or problems. REST STOPS - Of course! The "Barn" which everyone LOVES, and Mosaic Boardwalk, that is a county park and has been closed since Hurricane Irma due to severe damage to the boardwalk but they are kind enough to open up the restrooms and picnic table/pavilion area for our ride. If you have any requests for "food fuel" for the rest stops please let me know. We aim to please: we WILL have dill pickles, PBJ's (I sneak one or two of these myself) bananas, coke, Gatorade, Water, cookies, what else???? Lets don't forget our Power Pedalers. We will be giving away new bikes again to kids who otherwise wouldn't be able to afford one in an effort to cultivate a healthy lifestyle and a love of cycling. So far we have provided 128 bikes to kids in need. FOOD? Absolutely! I love trying to get you guys the best food from our favorite restaurants here in Bartow. You will have plenty to eat to help you recover from your ride as well as Ice Cream Cones from Sweet Magnolias as a cool treat. Parking is in the Oaks Parking lot just south of the staging area. GPS address is 220 S. Central Avenue, Bartow, Florida 33830 We look forward to seeing you at the Tour de Tow!!! Trish & Bob
