Tour de Sleepy Hollow
Come out to Lee County, VA and the Town of Pennington Gap to the 7th annual Tour de Sleepy Hollow bike ride/race. Annually, Moving Forward Physical Therapy, Inc selects a cause to donate all profits of the bike ride to benefit the community. Over the last 5 years, funds have been donated to organizations which provide healthcare to local citizens such as RAM and Save A Limb Fund. Also, funds have been donated to local youth battling cancer and for an all-inclusive playground to be built in Pennington Gap, VA.
There are 3 routes to choose from including 52 miles (3700 ft elevation), 36 miles (2400 ft elevation) and 22 miles. Funds collected from this year’s event will be used to provide scholarships to students in Lee County who are seeking a career in healthcare.
Building off of last year’s Southwest Virginia Cycling Challenge we have improved and grown cycling in Southwest Virginia to a bigger and better series in 2020… The Coalfields Cycling Challenge. The Coalfields Cycling Challenge will consist of 5 events. Tour de Crackers Neck (May 23), The Coal Country Classic (June 13), Gap to Gap (July 18), Benges Revenge (September 12), and Tour de Sleepy Hollow (Oct 3). Cash prizes will be awarded to the top 3 in Mens and Womens divisions. Scoring is based on your finish position (1 point for first, 2 points for second, etc.). If you miss one event no problem, we will allow one drop and the top prize will go to the person with the lowest score. For anyone who does all 5 events but does not finish in the top 3 their names will be entered into a raffle for a special prize.
