Each day of the tour is about 60-70 miles of fun road cycling covering a total of 190 miles by the end of day three. This event is not a race but a well supported leisurely ride on safe, scenic roads with limited traffic. There are plenty of rest stops along the way as well as a choice of indoor or outdoor accommodations each night. Fundraising dollars help the ALAMC in their continued fight against lung disease.
