The Tour comes to Lincoln. Well, the 17th annual Tour de Lincoln, that is.  It’s this Saturday.

The 100 Kilometer (63-mile) ride is a challenging route, climbing hills on Wise, Ridge, Bald, Forbes and Karchner roads. 

Local and returning riders will recognize these hills as adding “character” to the day.  For those looking for a bit easier morning, there are routes of 10, 20 and 40 miles. 

All rides start at McBean Park.

Your entry fee entitles you to a continental breakfast, well-stocked rest stops and a barbecue at the end. 

Proceeds benefit the Lincoln Rotary Club Foundation.
