NEW!! Conklin Bay Boardwalk Alternates
NEW FOR 2021! The Conklin Bay Boardwalk is now open for Riders.
The main reason that Tour des Lakes was started is to Fund Raise for the Wawasee-Syracuse Trails and even more importantly their biggest project, the newly opened Conklin Bay Boardwalk.
We want to incorporate Conklin Bay Boardwalk into our Routes for 2021, the 30K is easy to incorporate this, but in order for the 55K and 100K to hit the boardwalk, there will be an alternate route that adds 5.5K to the ride.
