NEW FOR 2020

Over the past few months, the Hendersonville Four Seasons Rotary Club and iDaph Events have put together event safety plans for our event to move forward in a new format to ensure social distancing measures that are set forth by the CDC are adhered to. We’ve also been through training with endurance agencies and event companies for best practices for the return of in person events. We will aim to have a ‘contactless’ event to provide a safe event for all!

Slight Course Change: We will be routing around the the Oleta Rd section this year.
Custom Tour d’Apple athletic buffs will be given to the first 350 participants to register!
OPTIONAL Virtual event experience is being offered so you can participate in this cycling event ANYWHERE! Compete from your home, the park, or anywhere else and submit your results online! See virtual event info in the ‘Virtual Event’ section of the registration page.

The Tour d’Apple on Labor Day

The Tour d’Apple cycling event provides four exciting, challenging routes through Western North Carolina’s apple orchards, waterfalls, and mountains to benefit the charitable projects of the Hendersonville Four Seasons Rotary Club.

 

“I’ve done over 100 organized rides like this and the 2 most important factors to me personally are a clearly marked course and an ample number of port o Johns at the rest stops. Tour d Apple gets an A+ in both catergories. Probably the best marked route I’ve ever experienced. Job well done!”
“This was an amazing ride! I think it was a excellent challenge for my skill/experience level. Rest stops, though only stopped at one, were borderline luxurious with what was offered. Don’t change a thing. I will be back next year, along with some friends.”
“One of the best organized rides in the region.”
“The event was very well organized! Everything was perfect. Thank you for a great time!”
“It is one of the prettiest routes in the area!!”
“Excellent scenery, the rest stops were plentiful and well run, the ride was beautiful and enjoyable; keep up the good work!”
