Celebrating its 14th year, Tour de Jefferson is a unique way to experience the scenery of Louisiana's heartland! This event is a social ride for cycling enthusiasts of all experience levels through Jefferson Parish. The goal of this ride is to continually enhance the awareness of quality-of-life amenities, recreational venues, and the Bicycle Master Plan in Jefferson Parish.

We are still finalizing the route options for 2020, but they will be very similar to the 2019 Routes. The biggest difference is that we are planning to offer a ~10 mile for a family-friendly option. There will still be routes offered with approximately the following lengths as well: 15, 30, 50.

DO I NEED TO WEAR A MASK WHILE RIDING?
We ask you to wear masks during the ride line-up while everyone is in the same area. Once you are out on the route with adequate space between you and fellow riders, you will be able to take your mask off. Since these roads allow us to create multiple route options with plenty of space between participants, it is our hope that you will be able to enjoy the majority of the ride without having to wear a mask. Of course, we do ask that you use caution and that you wear one if you are approaching an area with a large group of cyclists. Thank you!
