Road construction prompts route changes for Tour de Lakes
The 16th Annual Tom Logan Memorial bike ride, Tour de Lakes, will take place this Saturday, June 24, 2016. The ride begins at 7am, rain or shine, at the Longview Recreation Center (3801 SW Longview Park Dr., Lee's Summit, MO 64081).
Riders can choose from four different routes with updated courses announced late last week due to extensive road work being done throughout the city of Lee’s Summit: a 10-mile ride around Longview Lake, 32- & 46-mile rides around Longview, Raintree, and Lakewood Lakes. Avid riders can try the 63-mile ride touring all five lakes: Longview, Raintree, Lakewood, Blue Springs, and Lake Jacomo.
Tour de Lakes is a fully supported ride. The cost of the ride is $25 for those registered by Friday, June 23, and $30 the day of the ride. Riders 13 and younger qualify for a discounted registration fee ($20/$25 respectively).
Each rider must be 18 years of age or accompanied by an adult. Approved bicycle helmets are required for all riders as well as a signed waiver before their ride begins.
