The second annual Tour de Fresno charity bike ride was a tremendous success.  This year we shattered all expectations with over 700 riders from 63 cities, a huge leap from the 162 riders that participated last year!  We were thrilled for such beautiful and sunny weather throughout the ride and can only hope for the same good fortune next year.  

The comments and feedback provided by the riders were excellent and we were delighted to hear about how satisfied everyone was with the event.  "I did the 15 mile ride and had a blast. I was able to see parts of Fresno in ways I never knew," said Brandon of Salinas, Ca.  Riders also expressed great support for the Tour de Fresno commemorative jerseys and gloves, stating that they were not only stylish and comfortable but also great ways to represent our beautiful valley!

The rest stops also proved to be a great success with the riders.  "The ride was awesome and the sandwiches were delicious!" exclaimed Mike from Fresno.  All credit goes out to our volunteers at the rest stops as well as the post-ride lunch for their help and efficiency in providing the riders with everything they needed in between and after their ride

The Tour de Fresno was an enormous success thanks to everyone that helped and participated.  This is not only great for everyone involved but also it is a great step forward for our mission to bring statewide attention to our beautiful city of Fresno and the Central Valley.  "I never knew Fresno had hills, lakes, mountains, etc.  I'm in for next year!" said Jake from San Francisco, Ca.  Our goal is to make Tour de Fresno one of the largest sporting events in our area. 

In addition to promoting well-being and enthusiasm for the sport of biking, the Tour de Fresno aims to bring awareness to our community needs and charity opportunities.  This year's turnout was incredible and did much to contribute to our cause.

We are already in the process of organizing next year's ride, scheduled for Saturday September 17, 2011 and, with your help, we can make it the biggest and best tour yet, so mark your calendars and tell your friends!
