Saturday, October 20th, 2007- Today 25 riders helped kicked off the first ever, annual Tour de Washington. This ride benefited the Special Olympics. We were honored to have the ride start and finish at our store. The route went from our parking lot, to Busy Corner in Goodfield, back to our parking lot making it around 27 miles. We want to give a special thanks to local businesses The Blend, Great Harvest Bread Company of Peoria, and the Washington Police Department for donating their time and services to make this a successful ride.
Registration started early; 7AM
