What is the Tour de Danish?
The Tour de Danish is a 25 mile timed bike ride with a catch: The fastest rider may not win!
How it works:
- The ride will open with a paced mass start. The event will
follow the Lindsay Orange Blossom Festival parade, and will
precede the parade. For a few minutes, you will be the star of the show!
At the rest stop (approximately mile 12), each rider will have the
opportunity to eat as many Svenhard’s danishes as he or she
wishes. For every danish eaten, 5 minutes will be deducted from
his or her time. Yes—it’s possible for a rider to eat his or her
way into a negative overall time!
Is the Tour de Danish a ride or a race?
- It’s a bit of both. While the ride is timed, it is not a race. The
event takes place on public roads, and roads will not be closed to
traffic. All traffic rules must be followed during the event. So, while the Tour de Danish is a competitive ride, it’s all in good fun rather than all-or-nothing racing. Safety will be the first consideration.
- The route is flat, and is ideal for beginning riders.
