Since 1995, the Vandalia Freedom Tour has provided a fun, healthy and family-oriented day of cycling for people of all ages. Sponsored by the Vandalia-Butler Optimist Club, our annual event helps generate needed revenue to support youth programs in the Vandalia-Butler community.
REGISTRATION INFORMATION Event day registration/check in begins as early as 6:00am (at the Vandalia Sports Complex - Main Concessions Area) with the first cyclists leaving by 7:00am - once you pre-register, detailed information will be emailed to you as part of your confirmation communication (to the e-mail address given within the registration process).
As always, pre-registered cyclists are guaranteed to receive all the “good stuff”:
* Pick your route (50K or 100K)
* Delicious catered lunch
* Fantastic shirt
* Deluxe water bottle
* Very cool wrist band
* Other surprises (you never know)??
EVENT DAY (aka SAME DAY) CYCLISTS For those who prefer showing up on event day (you know who you are and we still love you!) - New for 2017, we will have ONE price option for Event Day cyclists. This option will guarantee lunch and a wrist band. In addition, Event Day registration will also include a shirt and water bottle - but only while supplies (and shirt sizes) last. So come early and increase your chances of getting all the good stuff for one low price (or better yet - PRE-REGISTER and guarantee yourself all the "good stuff"!)
ROUTES There are two scenic routes to appeal to all cyclists - 100K and 50K - both which begin and end at the Vandalia Sports Complex. The 50K and 100K routes wind through Butler Township/ Montgomery County and head north into Miami County. The 100K circles above Troy and makes its way through Casstown and Tipp City. The 50K heads north of Tipp City and joins up again with the 100K tour as it heads back to Vandalia. The routes are extremely well marked and detailed maps are available. For your safety, the entire route will be monitored by the Vandalia Freedom Tour volunteers until 2:30pm. Maps and important information will be emailed to all pre-registered cyclists and will also be available on our Facebook Page (http://fb.me/vandaliafreedomtour ) - so stay tuned.
