2014 Event Details
  Event location
Both Friday night and Saturday activities will take place at Cycling Spoken Here in Cary, NC. Cycling Spoken Here is located at: 1377 NW Maynard Rd, Cary, NC 27513.

Packet Pick up and Ladies Night
On Friday, October 10, packet pick up will be available from 4–7 pm, as well as 7:30–10:30 pm (during Ladies’ Night) at Cycling Spoken Here. Riders will be able to pick up their ride packets – ride number, t-shirt, great coupons and magazines from our sponsors and prizes earned. Jerseys will also be available for pick up and for sale. Registration will also be available and donations will be accepted.

What happens at Ladies’ Night you ask? The evening will include wine, cup cakes, sales, a great silent auction and more… including packet pick up! If you cannot make packet pick up on Friday, le Tour de Femme will open at 7:30 am on Saturday morning and you can pick up your packet from 7:30–8:30 am.

Ride Day Arrival and Parking
On October 11, please plan to arrive no later than 8:15 in order to have adequate time to park and prepare for the ride. (You’ll want to arrive earlier if you are picking up your packet on the 11h.)

Maynard Crossing Ct will be closed off in front of Cycling Spoken Here for the safety of participants and spectators. Please turn onto Maynard Crossing Ct at the stoplight next to the Neo-Asia. We have 6 acres of parking available immediately behind Cycling Spoken Here that volunteers will guide you to. Please, do NOT park on the street or at any of the surrounding businesses! Parking on the street will hinder other participants from getting to the event in a timely manner, and we do not have permission to park in any of the surrounding business’ lots and cannot be held responsible if you are towed.

Common questions:

What are the routes for the rides? Here’s a link to each of the routes: Click Here.

How are the routes marked?
The routes are marked in two ways: (1) with painted arrows on the street noting each turn and (2) with signs posted at each turn. Pink arrows are for the full-metric century route, blue for the half-metric century option and green for the 15-mile route. You can pick up a queue sheet at packet pick up, too.

Do I have to do the route that I signed up to do?
Nope. When you show up on the ride day, you choose to ride whichever route you prefer. In fact, the full- and half-metric century route are the same up until the first rest stop.

What happens if I need help during the ride?
No problem. Simply call the number on the back of your ride number, wave down a le Tour de Femme motorcycle support or SAG support person (SAG stands for support and gear – they are the folks along the course who can help you if you need it), or ask a sweeper rider (riders who ride the route to help participants, as needed), and they will be happy to help you.

When does online registration close?
Online registration closes at Wednesday, October 8 at 11:59 p.m. However, we accept registrations at Ladies Night on Friday and starting at 7:30 a.m. on Saturday at $40 per registrant.
