Tour d’Apple | That’s a wrap!
presented by Hunter Subaru
The Annual Tour d’Apple presented by Hunter Subaru took place in Hendersonville, NC on Monday, Labor Day, September 6, 2021. The ride nearly sold out with 597 registered riders. We had 9 states represented out at the ride and were delighted to see so many returning cyclists and new faces too! The day started with a few sprinkles of rain but quickly the foggy skies lifted and the temperatures were probably the coolest on record for this ride. Things didn’t start heating up until mid-afternoon, making it a very enjoyable tour around the Apple country in Henderson County. Congratulations to each of you that came out and accomplished your goal for the day. Whether it was your first time completing an organized ride or your hundredth, you all continue to amaze and inspire us!
The Four Seasons Rotary Club was able to raise valuable funds for community projects throughout the year from the donations and the entry fees from the ride. Thank you all for donating, showing up to ride and also donating canned goods for the Interfaith Ministries. Special thanks to all the Law Enforcement that attended and helped support the ride this year including the City of Hendersonville, the Buncombe County Sheriffs, VIPs and all the Four Seasons Rotary Club volunteers. Shout out to Chick-fil-A in Hendersonville for all the yummy post ride food. And last but not least, thank you to Hunter Subaru, for continuing to support this community event year after year.
Save the date for Monday, September 5th - Labor Day 2022 for next year’s Tour d’Apple.
