Registration for the 2016 Tour is NOW OPEN!

Online registration for the 2016 for 29th Tour de Madison on May 21, 2016 is now open!  ONLINE REGISTRATION CLOSES ON MAY 14 at 5:00pm EST!!!

We have held steady on the registration fees! No price increase. Both Metric Century and Intermediate riders who register before May 4 will pay only $40; after May 4 the price goes up to $55.

For Family riders the fee is only $20 before May 4, after May 4 – $35.

There is no longer mail-in pre-registration.

On Site Registration is from 7:00 to 9:00am at the picnic pavilion at Graves Mountain Lodge. On-site registrants may not receive a t-shirt. NOTE: Cash or check only. No credit card payments on site.

Only early registrants are guaranteed a Tour de Madison tech t-shirt.

New this year:

  • Routes are the same but the first rest stop will be at the Brightwood Ruritan grounds just across Rt. 29 from the Brightwood General Store on the east side of Route 29.
  • Because several of you asked for something a bit more challenging, on the return there will be an extra, optional, bonus loop from Criglersville to Etlan and the back to Syria across the mountain. This will add 8 miles to the either the 45 mile or 65 mile routes. And it adds a Cat. 4 climb!
  • Map for 45 mile ride plus bonus loop
  • Map for Metric Century plus bonus loop

Graves Mountain Lodge will have a la carte breakfast items available for sale during registration.

Ride will be held rain or shine.

No refunds will be given.

Welcome Tour de Madison 2010

The winter was long and snowy, but spring is now here and everyone is ready to get out and enjoy the green grass, flowers, and sunshine.  I have already seen bikers on the roads and folks getting ready to ride in all sorts of activities.

We are gearing up for the Tour de Madison bike ride as well.  Flyers will be going out this week and websites have been posted.

Update on the Tour deMadison 2009 Ride

July 1, 2009



Greetings to our Cyclist friends:


I thought you all would be interested in the results of our 2009 Tour de Madison bike ride. I would also like to address some changes which will be made next year.


We will improve on making all announcements so that everyone can hear them.  I know some folks were outside when the announcements were being made and were not able to hear.


There was confusion concerning the start time this year, and we will be sure that does not happen in the future. We have had a number of requests that we start earlier, and next year we will be starting the ride at 8:30 a.m. We will be sure to start everyone in the traditional mass start.


We will look into having more rest stops on the routes.  This year the 3 loops back to the firehouse were about the same distance to a rest stop in years past.


We had four safety crews on the road this year, and the last crew stopped at 2:30 pm. Next year we will have a few cell phones numbers available on the map to use if a rider needs assistance.


Our routes were listed by distance, not by difficulty or time factors.  This year the short route had more elevation that most people realized.  Next year we will be sure to give a brief description of each ride, and we will suggest the best route for novice riders.


I would greatly appreciate hearing from you if you have any suggestions of how we can further improve the Tour de Madison. We look forward to having you with us next year!


This information will also be available on our website,
