Watch or ride the 2013 Tour de Pepin this Saturday.

This Saturday, June 1, is the 2013 Tour de Pepin, a bicycle tour of Lake Pepin.  We invite you to sign up for a tour or come down to watch the riders.  Two of the touring options are still open.  The 72-mile Lac Plein tour traverses the entire Lake Pepin loop along the Great River Road on both the Wisconsin and Minnesota sides of the lake.  The new 100-mile Siede tour includes the full Lake Pepin tour plus a countryside tour in the Maiden Rock and Stockholm region.  All tours begin at Ohuta Park in Lake City between 7 and 9 a.m.  If you want to ride, you may register for the two open touring options at the park on June 1 prior to starting your ride. 

All those riding a tour receive a ticket for an excursion on the Pearl of the Lake paddlewheel boat, an admission ticket to the National Eagle Center, a commemorative Tour de Pepin water bottle, a ticket for a specialty draft beer compliments of NOSH Restaurant, a ticket for a glass of hard cider courtesy of Maiden Rock Winery & Cidery, and two free tickets to Widespot in Stockholm.

Whether you come to join the ride or watch the riders, immerse yourself in the gorgeous greens of spring all along the Great River Road, the prettiest drive in America.

We’d love to see you again,
