Knoxville Fifth Annual Tour de Lights

The Knoxville Regional Transportation Organization is having the fifth annual Tour de Lights holiday ride tonight, December 15, 2011. This fun ride starts and ends at Market Square downtown, and travels at a leisurely 8 mph or so through several local neighborhoods, for a distance of a few miles. Riders are encouraged to decorate their bikes for the holiday season. In the past, there have been between 200-400 or so participants. Being one of several large group rides put on each year, the Tour de Lights is nevertheless unique in being the ride that takes place at night. It provides a great way to showcase cycling to the community, and to show people that it can easily be done.

  1. The Knoxville Regional TPO is reporting that there were around 400-500 riders this year, despite a weather forecast for rain. Fortunately, the rain only came after the ride was over. It's highly probable that there was another record set!
