RENO, NEV- The Tour De Nez is coming back for its 21st year despite cancelling it back in May. The Reno City Council will donate $5,000 from the Reno Access Advisory Committee fund to Tour De Nez to help pay off expenses that came with its sponsorship of the United States Handcycling Federation Series. Originally the race was canceled after they couldn’t find a lead sponsor.
The Tour De Nez organization recently went through restructuring, allowing it to come back to Wingfield Park on Sunday July 28th. This one day race, known around the world, attracts cyclists of all ages and race levels, from the elite competitive to the weekend cruiser. This year's event is adding a 5K Run Race with cash prizes.
The Mighty Tour De Nez welcomes cyclists, runners and spectators to participant in this year's event in downtown Reno. This national competition will bring increased tourism to downtown Reno while also promoting understanding and awareness of the capabilities of cyclists with disabilities in the community.
