The Jefferson Chamber of Commerce will host their 10th Annual Tour de Jefferson Bike Ride, presented by Peake BMW, on Sunday, October 23, 2016, in West Jefferson, Louisiana.
Since its inception in 2006, Tour de Jefferson has become one of the region’s premier cycling events, bringing riders from around the country to the West Bank of Jefferson Parish each year. Organizers are preparing for more than 700 participants. The goal of this ride is to continually enhance the awareness of quality-of-life amenities, recreational venues, and the Bicycle Master Plan in Jefferson Parish.
This year’s event offers three different biking routes, allowing bikers to choose from 15, 38, or 50 miles. All routes offer riders a scenic bike tour through two parks, Bayou Segnette State Park and Jean Lafitte National Park. Riders will bike on paths through southern Jefferson along the Mississippi River Trail past bayous and moss covered oaks. Additionally, there will be scenic rest stops along the way equipped with plenty of energizing snacks and drinks.
The ride will finish where it kicks off, at the JEDCO Conference Center, where riders will enjoy good food, beverages and music at the annual Fin du Tour after party!
