Time is running out to sign up for the Tour de Kingston and Ulster this coming Sunday, September 10th. Log onto the BikeReg website https://www.bikereg.com/tdk23 and register
before 12 noon on Saturday to take advantage of the $50 discounted entry fee. You can register on the day of the event, but it will be at the higher rate of $60 per person (under 21? It’s still only $10 for
you!). You can sign up for the 8, 16, 30, 33 and 50 miles rides which include a BBQ lunch and raffle.
You can also register for the Tour’s Free Family Fun Ride. This is a flat, five-mile course that starts at 10 a.m. and travels through Uptown and Midtown Kingston. Riders are escorted by volunteer Ride Marshals and the Kingston Police Department. The Family Ride is free of charge, but registration is suggested.
Want some other options? We got ‘em!
The Hurley Rail Trail is the centerpiece of the Road and Trail Rides, which start at 9:30 a.m. and offer beginning and intermediate riders distances of 8 to 16 miles on roads and the flat, paved Hurley trail. These rides are led by experienced bicyclists.
Starting at 9 a.m. are the new 33 and 50 mile routes for intermediate and experienced riders. These are self-guided routes.
The mostly off-road Gravel Grinder Ride, suitable only for the most experienced riders, will start at 8:30 a.m. The route features dirt roads, rail trails and some pavement riding with challenging terrain and lots of hills.
Event registration fees include pre-ride refreshments, the Bike Brothers Burger BBQ, raffle ticket, route map, and rest stops with food and water. Riders with any mechanical problems can be picked up by our support vehicle. Proceeds from the Tour support community bike repair, safety education for youth and the Tour De Kingston Community Scholarships.
