  1. Hello, I would like to post a Charity Bike Ride event: The Franklin Food Bank’s Annual Tour De Franklin Charity Bike Ride.

    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. Breakfast, lunch and break stops are provided, and all participants who register before April 7 are guaranteed a t-shirt. 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 bike shirts.
    The Tour de Franklin is the Franklin Food Bank’s largest fundraising event, and over 775 riders participated in 2016 to raise over $78,000. The financial support is greatly needed – In 2016 the Food Bank provided almost 10,000 food packages to the community.
