Presented by the Friends of The Legacy Trail, the Sarasota Manatee Bicycle Club and the Trust for Public Land, the Tour de Parks bicycle ride includes 21-, 35- and 62-mile routes that offer participants a chance to experience the 18.2-mile trail and while exploring side streets to various parks and neighborhoods from Venice to Sarasota. Proceeds from the event will be used to enhance The Legacy Trail, including amenities such as water fountains and connectors such as the current one planned for North Port.

“The Legacy Trail provides an opportunity for those in our community to experience the outdoor scenic landscape of both north and south Sarasota County,” said Pat Neal, founder and president of Neal Communities. “We are proud to be part of this event, which showcases The Legacy Trail and the surrounding parks.”
