The Tour de BBQ is KC’s tastiest event on two wheels. It is a “tour” – not a race – where riders choose between routes of 15, 35, and 62 miles. What makes the event unique is that the rest stops for each route are some of Kansas City’s most famous barbeque restaurants where riders are provided a sample of that restaurant’s offering. The ride begins and ends at Kansas City’s Power & Light District and upon return, riders are greeted with Boulevard Beer, more barbeque and a free concert.
The event supports the University of Kansas Cancer Center and Children’s Mercy Hospital by providing funds for a nurse navigator to assist adolescents battling cancer to transition from pediatric to adult oncology treatment.
Since its inception in 2009, the Tour de BBQ has donated nearly $200,000 to fight cancer in Kansas City. Visit tourdebbq.com for more information about the ride.
We are looking for volunteers to help us out! We have several packet pickup / registration shifts the days before the event. We also have course position, "rest stop" positions, and finish line / post race positions. For more information on how you can get involved, please fill out our volunteer inquiry form (http://ultramaxtri.wufoo.com/forms/2013-tour-de-bbq/) or email us at [masked].
