Tour de Franklin Charity Bike Ride 2021 Sees Strong Community Support
SOMERSET, NJ – The Tour de Franklin Charity Bike Ride is a spring tradition in Somerset, NJ, as avid cyclists, and the community join together in late April to fight local hunger.
All funds raised support the Franklin Food Bank, and the Tour de Franklin is the Food Bank’s largest annual fundraiser. In previous years, the Tour de Franklin included up to seven rides in one day, bringing together up to 800 cyclists and over 100 volunteers.
Additionally, sponsors donated funds and goods generously, making the Tour de Franklin a critically needed financial success for the Food Bank.
The Tour de Franklin will continue as an important community tradition in 2021 but to maintain safety during the pandemic and to reduce crowding, it will transition from a single-day event to an individual ride on any day of a cyclist’s choosing from April 25 to May 31.
Cyclists may also choose any of the published ride routes or choose a route of their own. In consideration of the difficulties the pandemic brought to many families in the Franklin township area, all registration fees have been waived for 2021.
