Tour die Kapellen 2020- Tour of the Chapels *CANCELED*

Saturday, May 30, 2020

Tour die Kapellen is a "Tour of the Chapels". Join us for an incredible bicycle ride as we explore the beauty of Northwest Kansas & our local churches.

There are multiple ride routes to enjoy but each one travels through rolling countrysides. Choose from a fun ride or be a true adventurer on the 75+ mile course.

Tour die Kapellen is German for "Tour of the Chapels." The ride was created when a spunky group of cyclists from the Hays Area Bicyclists decided it was time for a ride that showcased the area, honored the Volga-Germans who shaped it & benefited the historical churches they built.
