The Conklin Bay Boardwalk is 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 Conklin Bay Boardwalk.
We want to incorporate Conklin Bay Boardwalk into our 55K and 100K routes, there will be an alternate route that adds 5.5K to the ride.
