The Columbus, Indiana People Trail System is available for all types of people powered transportation. It is an ever evolving system with a final goal of connecting our citizens and guests of our city, to key destinations throughout our community. The overall goal for future expansion of our trail system is to bring a bicycle or pedestrian facility connection within 3 blocks of 90 percent of our residents. Your participation in the Tour de Trails event(s) provides needed funds for maintenance. We thank you for joining us in this exciting and growing event!

Therefore, all race day registrants and all those that haven’t pre-registered on or before July 26 will be subject to a first come first serve basis on how many extra shirts the event organizers have purchased. Long story short, always pre-register!

20K participants are encouraged to start the course at 9:00 a.m. when we will have police support at busy intersections to ensure the safety of the more inexperienced road riders. 50K participants can choose when they would like to begin riding depending on their speed and experience.
Join us after your ride for a complimentary lunch at 12:00 p.m. back at the Donner Park shelter with a raffle at 12:30 p.m.! The course will close at 1:00 p.m.
