The Tour de Cape is an annual cycling event that takes place each fall in historic Cape Girardeau, Missouri. Riders may choose from a century ride (100 miles), a metric century (62 miles), a mid-length 30-mile or a leisurely 15-mile route. The 62 and 100 mile routes cross the Bill Emerson Memorial Bridge spanning the Mississippi venturing into Illinois.
Because the event is a tour, not a race, riders are encouraged to ride at a rate appropriate to their training and ride objectives. The routes will wind through scenic Ozark terrain that includes easy-ride flat stretches, rolling hills, as well as a few challenging hills. Rest Stops with "food and fluids" are conveniently located along the routes, and SAG support with a mechanic is also provided.
Proceeds go to the Mississippi Valley Therapeutic Horsemanship, a non-profit program that provides children with disabilities therapy using horses. Fees also help support Educational Scholarships for Cape County high school students, as well as community projects at home and abroad.
