The Tour de Corn is a ride, not a race. Plan on riding at a rate appropriate to your training and health level.
We appreciate your understanding:
BECAUSE WE ARE A CHARITY ORGANIZATION, THIS YEAR WE CANNOT OFFER REFUNDS OR ROLLOVERS...
RIDE GOES ON RAIN OR SHINE!
Our riders', volunteers' and community members' safety is among our top priorities each year. Extensive SAG service will be provided, including local first responders. HELMETS ARE REQUIRED FOR ALL RIDERS, INCLUDING CHILDREN IN BUGGIES & BIKE SEATS. Cyclists must obey all traffic rules. A message board will be provided at the Start/Finish Line. Family and friends may post messages.
Type of Terrain/Routes:
The Tour de Corn is flat for most of the ride, especially the shorter routes. Well-marked rural highways. Portions of the Mississippi River Cycling Trail on all routes. Approximate rides of 15-, 30-, 60 or 100!! The 100-mile ride is a great "starter" ride for anyone wanting to do their first Century ride. Find our Tour de Corn maps and elevations (from previous rides) here.
We will provide the final official 2023 Tour de Corn Routes closer to spring once post-winter road conditions have been assessed. Printed route maps will be available at the registration table on the day of the ride. Additionally, we will provide GPS-based maps in June. Find our 2022 Tour de Corn maps here as a reference point.
Rest/snack stops provided on all routes. Some rest stops have indoor bathrooms/running water; the others have portapotties. All have hospitality out of this world! This year we will work closely with our local health departments to provide the best possible safety for our riders and volunteers.
Ride starts and ends in downtown East Prairie at the Family Life Center at 320 Washington. Ample parking and restrooms provided. Bathrooms with showers will be available at the Family Life Center. Though the facilities are free-of-charge, you must bring your own towel, shower shoes and toiletries.
We will provide all registered riders a 2023 Rider Guide via email in late June 2023. If you have any questions in the meantime, please contact us at email@example.com or 888-CORN-030 (888-267-6030).
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
Had a blast. My first year. Did the 65. Was a beautiful day, a great route, well supported by so many friendly people. Will definitely be back next year.--- Neil Carr
