Hosted by the City of Cape Coral’s Parks and Recreation Department, the Tour de Cape has become one of the premier annual cycling events in the state of Florida. For over 25 years, hundreds of bicyclists take to the roads riding in tours that consist of their choice of a 15, 30, 60, or 100-mile courses. Riders begin the trek at Cape Harbour on the southwest side of the city early Sunday morning. For those adventurous enough to ride the 100-mile course, their journey will take them all the way to the northern most parts of the city past Caloosa Parkway on Old Burnt Store Road.
