The Tour de Lebanon Valley is a twist on a classic Lebanon County ride. It includes a beautiful metric century (62 miles), a rolling 25-mile distance and a fun filled family ride (10 miles).  Each route winds through rolling countryside, beautiful farmlands, young forests and past historic sites.

The metric century and 25-mile routes cover rolling terrain with only moderate elevation change.  There will be three rest stops on the metric century and one on the 25 miles ride. The family ride takes place on the Lebanon Valley Rail Trail, will visit the historic Cornwall Furnace, and includes a free entry.

Most of the proceeds from the ride benefit the Lebanon Valley Conservancy land preservation program. This program preserves farmland, open space, forests, waterways and culturally important areas. The Conservancy has preserved over 800 acres and hopes to double that number by 2020, their 20th Anniversary. The proceeds from this ride will go directly to those preservation goals.  By participating in this ride, you will also support the great work of the Lebanon Valley Bicycle Coalition and the Community Health Council of Lebanon County.
