10th Annual Junior Tour de Naperville Set for Saturday, August 12

Tuesday, July 25, 2023

The tenth annual Junior Tour de Naperville is coming to Wolf's Crossing Community Park on Saturday, August 12. Hosted by the Naperville Park District, the event gives kids ages 3-12 the opportunity to ride their bicycles, big wheels or tricycles around the 1.2-mile trail, cheered on by family and friends.

The event began in 2013 to commemorate the 100th edition of the Tour de France.

There will be separate starts for younger and older participants: the 3-5-year-olds will start at 9:00 a.m. followed by the 6-8-year-olds at 10:00 a.m. and the 9-12-year-olds at 11:00 a.m. The older kids will be challenged to go around the course as many times as they can. Each participating child must register for the event and will receive a yellow T-Shirt. Participants will have "support and gear" (SAG) stops, with drinks and snacks. Parents are welcome to encourage them from the sidelines or to accompany them around the course.

Registration for the Junior Tour de Naperville is in progress. To register for the event, please visit www.napervilleparks.org. Wolf's Crossing Community Park is located at 3252 Wolf's Crossing Road.
