The Tour de Franklin brings avid cyclists and the community together for a common cause – to fight local hunger. It is the Franklin Food Bank’s largest annual fundraising event, and the funds raised are a critical part of the Food Bank’s annual budget. Last year almost 800 riders joined our sponsors to raise over $70,000 in one day.  $70,000 equals 140,000 meals for our neighbors in need!

The Tour de Franklin Charity Bike Ride consists of seven different rides throughout the day, including the 62-mile, 40-mile, 25-mile, 10-mile, 1-to-5-mile walk or ride, and a 5-mile and 10-mile ride along the scenic Delaware & Raritan Canal, so everyone can participate in the day.
