The Tour de Franklin Charity Bike Ride consists of seven different rides throughout the day, including the 62-mile, 40-mile, 25-mile, 10-mile, 1-to-5-mile walk or ride, and a 5-mile and 10-mile ride along Somerset’s scenic canal.

Silver Riders who raise over $150 and Gold Riders who raise over $300 also receive a special shirt, and Titanium Riders who raise $1,000 receive special cycling jerseys.
The Tour de Franklin is the Franklin Food Bank’s largest annual fundraising event, and almost 800 riders participated in 2017 to raise almost $80,000. The financial support is greatly needed. In 2017, the Franklin Food Bank processed over 1.3 million pounds of food in the Millstone Road warehouse feeding over 1800 Franklin Township families in need.
