Saturday, August 24; Check in at 7 AM
The Tour de Saints charity bike ride, scheduled for Saturday, August 24th, is an annual outreach event, now in its seventh year. This event, hosted by All Saints’ Episcopal Church, is in support of Cooperative Christian Ministries of Cabarrus County.
Our objectives are to raise awareness about the work CCM does in our community, collect non-perishable food items the day of the ride, and generate funds to directly support CCM.
The ride will begin and end at All Saints’ Episcopal Church on Lake Concord Road. The Concord Police Department helps get our cyclists safely out of town and onto less traveled country roads, and the Cabarrus County Sheriff’s Department takes it from there.
Routes are available for all ability levels. The 50k, 100k and 50-mile routes traverse scenic rural areas of Cabarrus and Rowan County on classic “Back Country Roads.” A 12-mile Family Route is also scheduled. Riders participating in the event pay an entry fee and donate a non-perishable food item. We will provide lunch to the participants and sell lunch to anyone else.
New this year is online sign-up for volunteers. This will help ensure that mercy contact information is on file for all volunteers.
