Tour de Lemont with John Vande Velde

John Vande Velde, an Olympic cyclist and national champion, will be joining us Thursday for our 25th anniversary celebration with his son, Christian, also a well-known cyclist.

And on Saturday John will be leading the Tour de Lemont, a 20-mile Olympic caliber ride based on a route that John developed for Chicago’s 2016 Olympic bid.

It’s a big biking and bike advocacy week for the Vande Veldes (thanks, gentlemen!).
