Floyd VA – a Cycle Friendly place for both visitors and residents
Upcoming Cycling EVENTS:
Tour de Dirt, Floyd VA – Sat. November 2, 2019 “Power up Plenty”
Join us for the 13th annual Tour de Dirt: a spectacular bike ride exploring lesser-known roads in Floyd County. More than 50% of this ride will be held on unpaved state roads. Gravel bike, Cross bike, or Mountain bike friendly!!!
This is a ride and not a race, meant for fun and fellowship and appealing to riders of any age. New this year, all proceeds from the entry fee go to support Floyd’s own Plenty! Farm & Fresh Food Pantry. This year we aim to help Plenty! purchase a full-service generator so that their food bank can be open in all weather and conditions, so join us to POWER UP PLENTY!
The tour will start at Chantilly Farm in Floyd, so please plan to be there by 8:00am on November 2nd to sign in and grab some coffee and snacks. Your tour ticket includes up to four aid stations PLUS a meal ticket for our Power Up Plenty! Chili Fest. Please purchase separate meal tickets for anyone in your party who is not registering for the bike tour. We’ll entertain you with live music and good conversation, and we’ll be offering libations for sale as part of our Plenty! fundraiser. Come ready to chill out after the tour, and consider camping at Chantilly the night before, the night of, or both!
