What are your rules for COVID safety?
We are all eager to get back to some normalcy and get our friends out there on their bikes! But safety has always been our top priority and must remain that way this year more than ever. We recognize we’re in an evolving situation, so we’re working closely with our health departments, our first responders, and our volunteer coordinators to get the best possible environment for a safe, fun experience for all involved. This may mean new elements such as a staggered start for different routes, adjustments to registration pickup, and face coverings while at group settings...and lots and lots of sanitizing! But rest assured, we’ll keep you posted as we finalize those details in May and June.
Though Tour de Corn may look a little different this year, you can be confident we’ll provide the unparalleled hospitality you expect from our volunteers and our little ol’ ride. You cannot imagine how much we’ve missed you and want to welcome you back “home”!
Will you offer refunds this year?
Last year was definitely one for the books. Last spring, we were all just getting an understanding of what we were up against and we recognized that many riders were facing uncertainty, job loss, and financial hardships due to COVID-19. So for the first time in our nearly 20-year ride, we worked with riders to either refund their registration or roll it over to the 2021 ride. We are so hopeful that we’re all on a path to some normalcy this year and we’ll be able to complete our 2021 Tour de Corn charitable giving goals! So this year, the ride should go on rain, shine...or whatever! So we appreciate your understanding in returning to our policy of no refunds or rollovers of new 2021 registrations.
If you total our 13 years times -- 33 miles for each year -- we have ridden in Mississippi County at total of 429 miles. There must be some magic in that old blacktop road(s) that keep bringing us back. Folks, this is the creme de la creme of all rides. These organizers know how to run a ride.--- Larry McGuire
Really enjoyed the ride Saturday! The weather was nice, great SAG support and wonderful rest stops! Everyone was so nice and hospitable. This was my first, and I will definitely be back next year!--- Pennie Martin
