Drew Wilson, the man behind the Dickie Scramble is bringing back the Tour of Filmore for a second year. Last year's tour took riders on a challenging route that started and finished in Lanesboro with plenty of hills and beautiful scenery. The route was as challenging as Almanzo with almost 5,000 feet of climbing in 66 miles.
Drew knows this area well and the route for the 2015 Tour of Filmore is bound to be an adventure with more single lane gravel, long climbs and fantastic views. Though the route has not yet been determined, it will start and finish in Lanesboro for a distance of around 75 miles.
This fun event allows those that decide to take on the challenge to make it as competitive as they like. "This is a ride for anyone who is interested in riding a great route and doing so for free."
The Tour of Filmore will take place on Sunday, September 27th at 9:00 am.
After the ride there will be a grill out in the city park. Camping will be available Saturday night. The Penn Cycle Support Ambulance will be on hand for rider support. More details will be made available as the route develops.

Registration for this free gravel event is informal and can be done with a visit to the 2015 Tour of Filmore Facebook event page by selecting "Going". Drew asks those that register, "please do not say you will attend and then not". Spread the word to friends and family that would like to take on the challenge of the Tour of Filmore and I will see you there this September.
