The 4th Annual 2017 Twisted Pretzel Tour will take place in Germantown and Farmersville, Ohio, on Saturday, September 23, 2017. The Twisted Pretzel Tour is a mass-start timed event through the beautiful Germantown countryside. The routes (8, 21, or 39 miles) are flat to gently rolling with the longer routes traveling over the scenic Germantown dam (and down, not up, the dam hill). A ride across the wooden planks of the historic Germantown covered bridge is a feature enjoyed on all routes. Signs and road markings clearly mark the routes. Helmets are required.
