Journal Gazette

Online registration ends today for the Three Rivers Velo Sport 47th Annual Three Rivers Festival Tour Bicycle Ride on Sunday, July 15 from Hickory Center Elementary School.

Online registration can be found at BikeReg.com/Three-Rivers-Festival-Tour. Cost is $25 or $15 for 15 and under. 3RVS members are also $15.

There will be day-of registration at the school the day of the tour from 7-10 a.m.

There will be a SAG stop located at Churubusco Park that opens at 7:30 a.m., so 3RVS requests that riders start no earlier than 7 a.m. with staggered starts from 7-10 a.m.

There will also be a mass start at 8 a.m. for those who prefer group riding with five pace groups ranging from 12 to 20-plus miles per hour. Each group will be led by a 3RVS Tour Ambassador and will offer a different distance option.

The Tour will feature 14-, 25-, 52-, 63 or 100-mile routes through Allen, Whitley and Noble Counties with gently rolling to moderate hills.

Riders should select a distance they can complete by 4 p.m.

Helmets are required by all riders.
