2019 TOUR DE AGUA /
At Kids Across Cultures, loving and serving kids around the world is our primary goal. So kids and families were in the forefront of our minds when we created the Tour de Agua. From the ride itself to all the free Dublin Bottling Works craft soda you can drink, we hope that riders will make great family memories while they help change the lives of kids and families all over the world.
All four routes of the Tour de Agua will start and finish in downtown Dublin, near Old Doc’s Soda Shop, beginning at 7:30AM, 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 start & finish beside Dublin Bottling Works and Old Doc’s Soda Shop, where you can enjoy post-ride festivities and visit the soda shop.
