The Tour De Saints Annual charity bicycle event offers 50K, 100K, and 50 mile routes traverse the scenic rural areas of Cabarrus and Rowand County on “classic back country roads“.

“The charity ride raises awareness about Cooperative Christian Ministry and the work we do in Cabbarus/Rowan county community”, states event organizer Ragan Saints.

At the Tour De Saints community ride it’s easy to make new friends during the event.  If you’re just getting started, or have been cycling forever, there are routes available for all ability levels. A 12 mile Family Route is also scheduled so anyone with a bike can participate.  Riders under the age of 16 must be accompanied by an adult.

If you’re new to the area and don’t have someone to ride with contact Tour De Saints they have offered to try and find somebody at your ability level to ride with.

The race is set for August 25th at 8:15 am, the ride will begin and end at All Saints Episcopal Church on Lake Concord Road.   Cue sheets and support for riders will be provided on the day of the ride.  The Concord Police Department will help cyclists safely ride out of town and on to less traveled country roads, and The Cabarrus Sheriff’s Department takes it from there.

There will be multiple rest stops with snacks and drinks will be provided and a fantastic lunch is provided at the finish line.

We will collect non-perishable food items the day of the ride; and generate funds to directly support CCM. Riders who are interested in participating in the event can register on Active.com
