Rescheduled for Oct. 31
An annual unique cycling event designed to bring people together, the Tour de Plantersville will be held on Saturday, Oct. 31 (rescheduled from its original date in April). The event includes an extended 62-mile bike route through the scenic streets of the Plantersville community, which organizers say should attract new riders and “serious riders.” They expect to exceed 350 riders this year and at least 500 people are expected to attend. The event also includes a cultural festival on the grounds of Plantersville Elementary School after the ride.
The Tour de Plantersville is a project of The Village Group, whose mission is “to serve as a conduit for the people, working to make positive changes in our community that will improve the quality of life for all.” The Village Group was founded in the rural African American community of Plantersville and has grown to offer activities and programming for students and residents throughout Georgetown County.
