Tour de Midnight
Tour de Midnight supports the Epilepsy Foundation of Virginia. This event will be held on October 14 (Saturday), 2017. The event is composed of a 50k ride and a 100k ride, both through the scenic countryside of Goochland and Hanover Counties. The 100K ride goes out to Lake Anna and back.
The start and finish of each ride is at Midnight Brewery (hence the name), a small, family owned and operated micro-brewery in Rockville, Virginia. The rides start in the morning and finish at the brewery to a party with live band and food trucks.
Last year (our first year) we had 225 riders with many friends and family joining the party after the rides. It was a lot of fun and a nice success, but we would like to do even better this year.
The funds we are able to raise through registration, sponsorships and team fund-raising help support the many ways that Epilepsy Foundation of Virginia helps the more than 80,000 people in our Commonwealth who have epilepsy. EFVA provides training and education to teachers, school bus drivers, police and firefighters; we help clients attain emergency medications when they need it; our Regional Directors provide all manner of guidance and support, including programs that are both educational and social; we assist clients with the procurement of seizure dogs when that is what is needed to help a child or an adult live a better life. We do all of this at no cost to the client/patient.
Midnight Brewery is about an hour’s drive from Fredericksburg. Our registration website is already up and running for 2017 and we are offering a discount to all who register before April 1.
