What is a Discovery Ride?
Kicking off at 7:30am on April 21, 2018, The Tour de Plantersville is a unique cycling event designed to bring people together TO DISCOVER…
History: Gain awareness of the historically-significant land surrounding the Plantersville Scenic Byway. Along this stretch, there are ten plantations from the Colonial era that are part of the region’s rich rice farming history. These sites contain a number of pre-Civil War landmarks – mansions, slave houses, churches, rice chimneys and other ruins. The Tour de Plantersville has designated stops encouraging bike-riders to explore these grounds.
Habitat: Explore and enjoy the area’s natural beauty by submerging yourself in it. The Dirleton Plantation-Samworth Wildlife Management Area is located along this stretch of byway and offers a chance to see some of the region’s wildlife in its natural habitat.
Health: Discover your own strength by challenging yourself on one of the routes planned for the event. The Tour de Plantersville encourages physical activity for all participants in the hopes of combating sedentary lifestyles and especially childhood obesity. Group participation, including children, is strongly encouraged.
Harmony: Foster community togetherness during the ride and at the post-ride celebration. The Tour de Plantersville provides a safe and fun environment to build meaningful relationships and to learn – developing a sense of pride for the area’s beauty, history and people. Come together for The Village Group, the Village Flyers Bicycle Club, and Plantersville Summer Academy, which engages underserved local youth in summer learning programs to encourage leadership and support academic success.
Sponsorship opportunities are available.
