The 25th Anniversary of the Vandalia Freedom Tour is being postponed to 2021 due to COVID-19. However, we are offering a VIRTUAL bike tour this year....read more on our COVID-19 page.
Since 1995, the Vandalia Freedom Tour has provided a fun, healthy, and family-oriented day of cycling for people of all ages. Sponsored by the Vandalia-Butler Optimist Club, our annual event helps generate needed revenue to support youth programs in the Vandalia-Butler community.
Every 4th of July, we host a 50K and 100K Bike Tour that takes riders through some of the most picturesque areas of the Northern Miami Valley. With amazing prizes, lunch, and swag, it's an amazing event—rain or shine! But let's be honest, we all prefer the sunshine for our event.
Fantastic, easy-to-see markings to follow throughout the entire ride.
We have amazing volunteers on call to provide support and gear to all of our cyclists—if needed.
Shirt and Water Bottle
Enjoy custom-designed t-shirts, deluxe water bottles, and cool wrist bands... if you're into that kind of thing!
Supportive Rest Stops
We have evenly spaced out rest stops that are fully stocked and well supported, just when you need that extra boost!
We always have a delicious lunch ready for you when you return from your ride. We hope you'll stick around for it!
Who doesn't love free stuff? We have amazing sponsors who have sweet prizes!
We'll be under the Main Concessions Area at the Vandalia Sports Complex by the Vandalia Recreational Center.
