The 11th Annual Tour de Pepin
Saturday June 2, 2018
CLICK HERE TO REGISTER!!
Registration is now open for the 11th Annual Tour de Pepin (TDP) bicycle ride! Tour de Pepin is one of the Midwest’s most unique cycling tours where riders have the option of a 32, 50, 72, 100 mile ride through the captivating terrain and historic towns around Lake Pepin along the Great River Road. The ride includes rider support and 11 rest stops that feature a wide range of energizing snacks and refreshments. Riders still get to enjoy a number of add-ons as in previous years including a swag bag, special offers, and complimentary TDP t-shirt with registration.
Riders who navigate the 32 and 50 mile routes also enjoy scenic views from the comfort of The Pearl of the Lake, a genuine replica
1800s paddleboat, as they return back to Lake City. More riders than ever before will be able to take advantage of the popular
paddleboat return to Lake City. This year bikes will be returned to Lake City via an enclosed trailer so that more riders
are able to enjoy the paddleboat ride during each of the five shuttle times offered.
New for 2018, riders can relax and unwind following their return to Lake City
with a reception held at Ohuta Park. Sociable Ciderwerks will be serving beverages to riders upon return to Lake City along with live music and food vendors available for purchase.

Sediment is filling Lake Pepin at a rate 10x normal and annual loads are equivalent to a city block filled to the height of the Foshay Tower in downtown Minneapolis. The sediment has made Upper Lake Pepin vulnerable to ecological collapse. Fortunately, Lake Pepin Legacy Alliance (LPLA) has spearheaded a large-scale restoration project to improve water quality, fish and wildlife habitat, and recreational access. The Lake City Chamber of Commerce is helping LPLA mobilize support from all the people who love Lake Pepin. You can help by becoming a LPLA member today!
