Tour de Fond du Lac
We invite cyclists of all ages to bike the Fond du Lac Loop September 29 – October 8 to support affordable counseling through Shards! Invite your friends, family and coworkers to sponsor you, and share pictures and stories of YOUR “Tour de Fond du Lac” on Facebook with other participants throughout the event. Registration is $25/person or $50/family of 4 ($10/each additional child). On Sunday, October 8, we will have a wrap-up celebration at Lakeside Park’s DeNevue Shelter between 11:00 a.m. and 2:00 p.m.; sponsor sheets and funds raised will be collected at this event. Participants will have an opportunity to add a few more miles to their log sheets on the 8th; a 15-mile ride will start at DeNevue Shelter at 11:00 a.m. 10 mile and 5 mile rides will start at 11:30 and noon. A light lunch will be provided at the shelter, and we will announce which team and individual biked the most miles during the event and which team and individual raise the most money. We will also have music and yard games for all ages.
We encourage participants to RSVP to the Facebook event and to share the event on your Facebook Timeline.
During the nine days of the “Tour de Fond du Lac”, bike all or part of the Fond du Lac Loop. Start wherever you want, do it all at once, or spread it out over several days. Keep track of how many miles you ride. Enjoy a quiet ride by yourself, or bike with friends and family. If you don’t have a bike, you can use the stationary bikes at your gym or the YMCA. Form a team with coworkers, friends, or people from your church. Join the Facebook group “SHARDS Tour de Fond du Lac” to post pictures and videos of your ride. If you’re on Instagram, use the hashtag #ShardsRide.
For those who would like to participate but are physically unable, contact the Fond du Lac Street Pedalers at (920) 238-0883 and experience the Loop in a bicycle pedicab.
