SYRACUSE — Don’t act like you’re not impressed.
Saturday was the seventh-annual Tour des Lakes, a bike ride that introduced riders to the natural beauty of Kosciusko County. This year’s event was the best one yet as nearly 300 riders turned out.
The Tour offers three route options for riders: 25K, 50K and 100K. The most popular of these options was the 100K, which took riders around Lake Wawasee, Webster Lake, Chapman Lake, Winona Lake and Tippecanoe Lake, with an optional route around Dewart Lake.
In addition to the Tour des Lakes, the Syracuse Parks Department also hosted its third-annual Tour de Parks Scavenger Ride which was a free family fun ride that took riders around Syracuse’s parks system.
There were also three BMX shows put on by Solution Action Sports as well as several area food vendors at the Syracuse Community Center for this year’s events.
