Tour de Bland
The Tour de Bland is an annual road cycling ride run to support the fundraising efforts for the Relay For Life in Bland County, VA. We offer rides of 15, 37, 73, and 100 miles through the mountains of SW Virginia during the height of the fall foliage. The focus is on the enjoyment for everyone who participates in the event. The entire event is hosted by employees and friends of ABB’s Dry-type Transformer factory located just a few blocks from the starting line.
There are many other outdoor attractions should you want to make a weekend of it. Situated in the heart of the Jefferson National Forrest, the Blue Ridge Mountains, and the Appalachian Trail, Bland County has some of the most beautiful scenery in the country.
