Tour de Cape
The 10th annual Tour de Cape bicycle ride for charity was held earlier this month, and more than 300 riders took advantage of the beautiful day to help raise money for Mississippi Valley Therapeutic Horsemanship. This is an organization that helps children with disabilities and helps form strong bonds between small children and large horses.
The Tour de Cape isn't a race to see who can finish first. It's an opportunity to take part in rides throughout scenic Cape Girardeau County. The rides are as short as 15 miles and as long as 100 miles.
Some changes were made this year in the routes the various rides took, and most of the feedback was positive. There were still plenty of hilly challenges for the bikers.
It takes some doing to organize an event like this and provide all the help on the day of the ride to make sure everything goes smoothly. Hats off to the Tour de Cape organizers and everyone who helped make it another success. And hats off to the riders who saw a way to raise money for an important organization while enjoying a bike ride. And hats off to motorists who appreciated what the bikers were doing and shared the road.
