Rollfast Partners with Carmel Clay Parks & Recreation for 2017 Tour de Carmel

13th annual Tour de Carmel, scheduled for September 17, 2017

May 1, 2017 - Carmel, Indiana – Carmel Clay Parks & Recreation (CCPR) and Rollfast have entered into an agreement to collaboratively present the 13th annual Tour de Carmel, scheduled for September 17, 2017. This year’s event will serve as a transition year as Tour de Carmel migrates from a CCPR event to Rollfast Gran Fondo in 2018.

This year’s ride will be approximately 5 miles long (an addition to Rollfast’s offering 25/65/100-mile ride offerings) utilizing multi-use paths, trails and sidewalks. The bike ride will start at 10 a.m. and finishes at the Rollfast Gran Fondo festival where riders may purchase food and beverages as well as take part in the Recovery Tent and enjoy live music.

“We want Carmel to be a nationally known bike town and evolving this classic event will get the national recognition it deserves,” said Matt Tanner, Rollfast owner. “It’s always been in the back of my mind that the Tour de Carmel’s next progression would be utilizing our small route at the Fondo. Now it is a reality as the Fondo is ranked 8th in the nation, attracting riders from around the World.”

Rollfast will be working alongside CCPR concerning funding, advertising and event-planning, providing each other with resources to ensure a successful transition. Rollfast, soon to become the main contact for the Tour de Carmel, will be donating $1 of each registration for the 2017 five mile ride to the Carmel Parks Foundation.
