Tour de Gem 2024

Rides begin at Day Air Ballpark, 220 N. Patterson Blvd, Dayton, OH 45402

This “Ride with a Purpose” is produced by United Way of the Greater Dayton Area to increase awareness and raise funds to invest into valuable services throughout the area and provide a platform for other non-profits to raise funds to support their specific missions. This is a fun, family-friendly way for cyclists of all ages and abilities to have a positive impact in their community and explore the many GEMs the Dayton region has to offer. In just 6 years, over $430,000 has been raised for area nonprofits. Route choices include routes only on the Miami Valley Trails.

There will be Live Ride and Virtual Ride options! Live Ride and Virtual Ride participants can take part in the virtual challenges that will be available starting Monday, August 19 and continuing through Saturday, August 31st.
