2018 TOUR DE AGUA
We’ve added a 25-mile route this year! Enjoy!
All four routes of the Tour de Agua will start and finish in downtown Dublin, near Old Doc’s Soda Shop, beginning at 8:00AM, with a briefly staggered start. Each course will remain on pavement, primarily utilizing scenic and lightly traveled country roads. Distance, more than anything, will determine the degree of difficulty, as each course consists of rolling hills, intermittent flats, and an occasional leg-burning climb. Safety will be given highest priority with traffic control, SAG vehicles, and rest stops at strategic points. The routes finish down one of Dublin’s quaint brick roads and then you can join the festivities of the Dublin Summer Celebration beside Dublin Bottling Works and Old Doc’s Soda Shop.
All proceeds benefit Kids Across Cultures and will be used to provide clean water for children and families around the world.
