We welcome returning and new Riders to the 4th annual Le Tour de Fort Roots Tour! The 2020 Roots Tour will take place on August 22nd, 2020.
Our bicycle pub-crawl allows adults to drink responsibly for a good cause. Last year, we completed our mission of replacing the fleet of vehicles driven by the volunteers of the Disabled American Veterans chapter #40. Those volunteers are now transporting military Veterans to medical appointments at Veterans Affairs (VA) medical facilities throughout the region in the comfort of 2019 and 2020 year Ford vehicles. For those of you Riders that have participated in any of our events over the past 3 years, thank you very much for helping us accomplish that mission!
Le Tour de Fort is not a race, contest or competition. This is a social event. Our mission is to support Veterans, strengthen our community and bring people together for an awesome time. In addition to our continued support of military Veterans, this event and our Riders support locally owned businesses of Fort Wayne south of the downtown district and along the Broadway corridor and in the 46807 ('07) neighborhood. Our 'Tour Friendly Locations' are locally owned establishments that serve our Riders throughout the event, help with our mission of supporting Veterans and are a crucial component of the event. Our Riders provide the best day of annual business for some locations, for others, their best day ever! The complete list of Tour Friendly Locations will be released soon.
We call this event the 'Roots Tour' because way back in 2009 when this event began, the majority of our OG Riders lived in the '07 and many of those OG Riders still call the '07 home.
This year, we have pledged to support to the Honor Flight of Northeast Indiana, in addition to our continued support of the Disabled American Veterans chapter #40
Thank you for your support!
