The Tour de Ephrata is a one-day bike racing celebration taking place May 1, 2011. World-class races will be taking place from noon – 6pm, but the fun doesn’t stop there. This year’s event organizers have lined up events for casual cyclists and kiddos too, so there’s truly something for everyone!
At 2:00 pm there will be a “Celebrity Race” where you can compete against Senator Mike Brubaker, Ephrata Mayor Ralph Mowen, Akron Mayor John McBeth and others for this year’s bragging rights!! The kids races will begin at 3:00 pm. And for everyone who’s more interested in watching the action than joining it, there will be food vendors galore for your culinary pleasure from noon – 5:00 pm!!
