The Money Road Cycling Club and the Greenwood-Leflore County Chamber of Commerce will present the 8th annual Bikes, Blues & Bayous bicycle tour on Saturday, August 1, 2015. There will be a 62 mile "Metric Century", 46, 20 and 11 mile (NEW!) routes. The rides will begin at 7am on Front Street in historic downtown Greenwood, Mississippi, the primary filming location of 2011's Oscar-winning movie, THE HELP.  

In addition, the Tour de Grand will take place again this year. This is a 2 mile "cruise" down beautiful Grand Boulevard and is intended for the younger riders or any age looking for a modest distance at a leisurely pace. The Tour de Grand ride begins at 8:15am across the river.


Mississippi's Largest Ride...and More!

 

Bikes, Blues & Bayous has evolved to be a great event, but we want to do even more! So, this year we are increasing our financial support of the Gary Holdiness Cycling Fund. The fund was established in 2012 in memory of Dr. Gary Holdiness, our friend and fellow cyclist from Kosciusko, Mississippi, who was tragically struck and killed by a motorist while cycling on the Natchez Trace Parkway.  The fund’s mission is to promote a safer cycling experience on the Trace, one of the world’s premier bike routes.  A portion of the proceeds from this year’s sale of the BBB CYCLING JERSEY and BIKE RAFFLE tickets will be donated to the Dr. Gary's fund.  So, know that your purchases go for a great cycling cause and have a positive impact beyond the BBB ride. You can go to the REGISTER link at left to make a purchase, and sign up for the ride, too.
