The fourth annual Tour de Lebanon Valley will be held Saturday, June 11, with 6, 25, and 62 mile race routes being offered.

This year the original core group of nonprofit organizers will be joined by two new groups that will benefit from the fundraiser: the Lebanon Valley Mountain Bike Team and Lebanon Bicycle Recycle.

The event is organized by original core partners Community Health Council of Lebanon, the Lebanon Valley Conservancy, and the Lebanon Valley Bicycle Coalition.

Online registration is available through June 8 at 5 p.m. Race day registration will also be available. This is a rain or shine event and no refunds will be offered. (Organizers note that if you are unable to attend the event, your registration fee can be converted into a tax-deductible contribution.)

A selection of decals and a custom set of Tour de Lebanon Valley socks are also available through purchase on the registration website.

The Metric Century (62 miles) and Mid-Distance (30 miles) rides are $45 to enter, if you purchase before May 29, and the Family Rail Trail Ride (6 miles) is $5. Fees for the adult rides increase to $55 on May 29. Team discounts are available by emailing race director Nicole Mauer Gray.

For the first time, race organizers have also negotiated a group rate at the Fairfield Inn & Suites, located in North Cornwall Commons across the street from the race starting point, the Lebanon Valley Exposition Center & Fairgrounds. Rooms are available for $139/night. With race sponsor Mick’s All-American Pub already open in the North Cornwall Commons complex and Isaac’s Craft Kitchen & Brewery expected to be open by race day, the elements are all in place to make your own “bikes and beers” weekend in Lebanon County.
