This event offers cycling enthusiasts of all ages and skill levels unique routes that showcase the beauty of Frederick County, emphasizes our county’s rich history and fosters camaraderie among riders. This event has grown dramatically since its inception and over 500 participants are expected this year. When you ride the TOUR DE FREDERICK, you are supporting Boys & Girls Club of Frederick County!

Our local Boys & Girls Club, whose mission is to enable all young people, especially those who need us most, to reach their full potential as productive, caring, responsible citizens, serves over 200 at-risk children in the Frederick Community. Through after school and summer programs ; Power Hour (homework assistance), ClubRiders (bicycle safety and training), SMART Moves (dealing with peer pressure), NetSmartz (internet safety), and Torch Club (leadership development) the Club provides a fun and safe environment for our children.
