This cycling festival started at a brutally hilly 75 mile road cycling epic. Today, the event has grown into a day-long celebration of cycling! Races, vendors, swap-meet and more! Too much information about this event for Active.com, so we encourage all potential participants and spectators to visit our website (www.Mon-tour.com) often to learn all about the event.
- Mon-Tour: 81.83 miles of brutal hills and rolling countryside.
- Mini-Mon-Tour: 49.2 miles of generally the same roads.
- Micro-Mon-Tour: 21.7 miles of some of the same roads.
The Mon-Tour and Mini-Mon-tour start fast with a ride down Market street in Danville to Mill street. After those first 2.5 of these courses; the picnic ends! Bald top road will be the first reality check. The course will next take you over ridges, through the flat farm land of the western sections of Montour County and then back up the ridges of Norhern Montour County. The ride back towards town will be filled with beautiful roads and challenging terrain.
The Micro-Mon-Tour is NEW in 2013, and gives a taste of the larger rides, but in a shorter, friendlier format. Great for people interested in the flavor of the Mon-Tour, without all the punishment.
Registration closes on Friday May 16th at 3:00 pm. Riders can register the day of the event (May 18th) starting at 7:00 am. if the ride is not sold-out. This ride is part of the River Towns Race Series (www.rivertownrace.com) and is a level 7 event. There will be really cool T-shirts for pre-registrants before April 19th. Other t-shirts will be given out as supplies last. This fully supported ride will be well marked with water and facilities available along the route. There will be food, prizes and an award ceremony/party at the finish/starting area. SEE OUR WEBSITE FOR FULL DETAILS www.Mon-tour.com
