Tour d’Alexandria bike ride rolling into town later this month

While it won’t have the fierce competition of its French forebearer, Le Tour d’Alexandria is being hosted by the Alexandria Library later this month.

The 13-mile, 2.5-hour bike ride will run in a loop around Alexandria, hitting all of the library locations along the way.

“This leisurely ride begins at 10 a.m. at Beatley Central Library, is approximately 13 miles long, and ends back where it began,” the Alexandria Library event listing said. “Bring your bike and join library staff for this 2.5-hour ride.”

The check-in starts at 9:30 a.m. at the Beatley Central Library and the tour starts at 10 a.m., finishing roughly around 12:30 p.m. back in the same location.

Space on the tour is limited and riders must be at least 13 years old to participate. Those under 18 must be accompanied by a parent or guardian. Helmets are required.
