On Sunday, July 30, the annual Irish Pub Tour de Shore will take place. 2017 marks the 30th anniversary of the fundraising event.
Funds go to the Irish Pub Children's Foundation, which is dedicated to raising money for children in need, and the families of fallen police officers and fire fighters in the Greater Philadelphia and South Jersey area.
Participants in the Tour de Shore cycle from the Irish Pub on Walnut Street to the original Irish Pub location in Atlantic City, New Jersey. The route, which takes participants over the Benjamin Franklin Bridge, is 65 miles.
Approximately every 15 miles there will be a rest stop with food, refreshments, first aid stations and bike support.
Those who plan on participating this year should sign up soon. Space is limited, plus all riders must raise a minimum of $200 by July 1 (in addition to paying the registration fee).
The after-party at Atlantic City's Irish Pub is free for participants, but friends and family can attend with a $20 donation.
Riders who want a ride back to Philly, or want to send their bike back to Philly while they party, must opt for the bus service during Tour de Shore registration.
