The 20th Tour D’ Amico photo recap shows the fun many enjoyed on the 4th

In this photo recap, the Hiawatha Bicycling Club (HBC) celebrates the Tour D’ Amico (TDA) bike ride and picnic for the 20th year. A premier 4th of July bicycle celebration, it all began as a fun club gathering with a goal to bring old and new friends together to build membership and community ties. With the slogan "Eat Well, Laugh Often and Ride" the tradition of Tour D' Amico hasn't changed much over the years with the long-standing partnership with D' Amico and Sons Restaurants. Each year, on Independence Day, the Tour offers several scenic route options with a fabulous picnic lunch at the end. No different this year, the delicious buffet was served al fresco style, around the water fountain at the Golden Valley D' Amico's location. Enjoy by all!

We try advice online from other athletes, coaches, and magazines. However, we forget the most important thing we need to do during these summer events is to apply sunscreen and stay hydrated.
