Tour de Fort Worth with FitWorth logo

Get ready for the long haul: the 2014 Tour de Fort Worth kicks off July 5.

Tour de Fort Worth is Mayor Betsy Price's annual event aimed at giving seasoned cyclists a chance to experience many different parts of the city from the best seat around—a bicycle seat.

Make sure your bicycle is in working order prior to the ride, and bring your own tools for flat repair. Last, but not least: Wear mosquito repellent.

Register and log your Tour de Fort Worth miles at FitWorth365.org.
