The 23rd Annual B&O Bicycle Tour winds its way through Hendricks County, Indiana, crossing the future B&O Trail several times. You can choose from 10 -, 25-, 45-, or 62-mile loops. The 10 mile route stays in town and rides along the paved section of the B&O Trail. The longer routes feature some hills and the 62 mile route circles around scenic Heritage Lake. After the ride, stick around for a BBQ lunch and live music by Mike Whitlock, all included at no extra charge. Kids 12 and under ride free. There will be live music by the Avon High School Jazz Band at the Maplewood SAG stop. To make the ride family-friendly, there will be a refreshment stop on all routes, even the 10-mile route. Each stop will feature homemade cookies, treats, and fruit, as well as plenty of water and port-o-lets. SAG vehicles will be roving the routes to assist with minor mechanical problems or fatigue. A-1 Cyclery will be on hand at Williams Park to answer questions and assist riders with pre-ride inspections.
Teams of 7 or more receive a discount. This is a great way to promote cycling among your company, church, or civic organization.
