We will have a new Tour de Madison Jersey available for order here through Cutaway. (Please note that the actual jersey will include logos of local sponsors not shown here.) Jersey must be ordered by mid March to assure delivery prior to the event. Click here to pre-order the new jersey.
The jersey is based on the color scheme of Ridge Supply’s Skyline Sunset sock. We encourage you to support this small business created, owned, and managed by original Tour de Madison cyclists Matt Hawkins by purchasing the matching sock from the Ridge Supply website.
In light of the public health measures related to the Coronavirus pandemic, we have sadly and reluctantly decided to cancel the 2020 Tour de Madison. For those of you who have already registered we will be working with BikeReg.com to set up procedures for refunds or transferring your registration to the 2021 Tour de Madison.
Leap day comes only once every four years. To commemorate this special day, the Tour de Madison committee is offering a $5.00 discount, February 29, 2020. Starting just after midnight February 29 you can register with this coupon code, Leap2020. Use it for as many registrations as you like. The coupon will expires 24 hours later.
As on every 3rd Saturday in May for the last thirty-two years, cyclists from around Virginia and beyond will gather to cycle across the rolling hills of Madison County on May 16, 2020. Registration is now open here: http://www.bikereg.com/33rd-annual-tour-de-madison
Much will be the same as in recent years. We will gather at Graves Mountain Lodge, in Syria, Virginia. There will be three route options, great rest stops, and SAG support. When you return to the starting point, there will be a great meal and entertainment awaiting you.
The routes will be a bit different this year. As a result of safety concerns crossing Route 29, the revised routes will only cross at stop lights near the town of Madison.
The revised metric century route, will now include what we used to call the bonus loop: an extended return by way of Criglersville and Etlan before returning to Syria across the mountain on Etlan Road. Here is that route: https://ridewithgps.com/routes/31544204
Les Welch of Back Alley Bikes/East Coast Bicycle Academy will be providing additional mechanical support for the 2019 Tour de Madison. He will be set up at the Hoover Ridge Rest Stop to assist with any minor repairs that become necessary during the ride. As usual, Veloconcepts of Culpeper Virginia will be set up to provide mechanical support at Graves Mountain Lodge.
We are grateful both to Les Welch and to Joe Coppola for their support for the 2019 Tour de Madison. We want to make sure all our cyclists have a great experience!
Do you like beer? Do you like discounts? Well, the Tour de Madison is pleased to announce three opportunities to get those two things you like at the very same time. TdM Representatives will be present at Peloton Station in Charlottesville on Sunday, April 14, 4-6pm; Pale Fire Brewery in Harrisonburg on Monday, April 15 from 5-7pm; and at Triple Crossing Brewery’s Fulton location in Richmond on Tuesday, April 16 from 6-8pm. Come on out, buy a beer, and sign up for the Tour de Madison and we will discount new registrations by $5. Our hope with these events is to show our appreciation for our friends in Harrisonburg, Charlottesville, and Richmond, and, of course, to attract more people to our great event.
We are thankful once again for our primary T-shirt sponsor Gayheart and Willis PC, Attorneys at Law of Culpeper, Va. This is the second year that the folks at Gayheart and Willis have made a major contribution enabling us to provide a high-quality, attractive T-shirt for the first 350 registrants for the ride.
Are you ready for the 32nd Annual Tour de Madison? What could be more appealing than the beautiful mountain views, rolling hills, friendly rest stops and yes, even the occasional cow in the road! (“cow up” :-)) Routes are available here.
Registration is now open. Once again we are planning to stage the ride from Graves Mountain Lodge in Syria. Preparations are under way for another great after-party with picnic food free for registrants and great entertainment on tap.
We are excited to announce that we are once again selling our 30th Anniversary Commemorative Tour de Madison cycling jersey (and matching cap) through Cutaway USA. If you order by March 15, shipping is free, and the jersey will be waiting for you at the Tour de Madison. You can order from the registration page. It’s easier to see the size chart here.
Stay tuned for updates. We look forward to seeing you May 18!
