Davis Phinney Foundation May 18, 2024, Tour de Victory Annual Ride

May 9, 2024

Boulder, CO/ENDURANCE SPORTSWIRE/ – We invite you to the fifth annual Tour de Victory Cycling Challenge: a unique Colorado charity ride that raises funds and awareness for the Davis Phinney Foundation for Parkinson’s.

The Tour de Victory Cycling Challenge is a non-competitive fundraising event. Riders enjoy the scenic backroads of Boulder County, cruising along well-marked routes designed to suit cyclists of all abilities. The Tour was started by long-time and late friend of the Davis Phinney Foundation, Tom Palizzi, who wanted to bring a safe and enjoyable ride to Boulder County, Colorado. Under Tom’s visionary leadership, the event grew to over 400 riders and has raised nearly half a million dollars for the Foundation since 2019.

Tour de Victory has courses designed for everyone from the 20-kilometer beginner-friendly loop to the more challenging 50- and 100-kilometer rides. Olympic cyclist Davis Phinney and his son Taylor—also a professional cyclist—will be riding alongside you!

In keeping with the Foundation’s mission to always provide Parkinson’s education and resources free of charge, cyclists living with Parkinson’s can ride any of the three distances for free.
