2009 Tour de Lions Photos

On Saturday morning, almost 400 bicycle riders from all over the state of North Carolina took part in the 10th annual Grays Chapel Lions Club’s Tour de Lions bike ride. The ride is a 75 mile tour through Randolph and Chatham counties in central NC. Money raised through the ride helps support the local club’s programs for the visually impaired. Weather for the event was gorgeous. Though it’s not officially a race, the event attracts serious riders who put on quite a show with pelethons and breakaways, as well as those who are just out for a nice spring morning ride through beautiful countryside. I try to cover the tour each year because my late Father was a life-long member of the Grays Chapel club. For more info on the ride, go to http://www.tourdelions.org/. (There should be a gallery of more images posted soon on the Tour website.)
