The Lincoln Volunteer Center and Placer Valley Tourism are delighted to announce the Tour de Lincoln was honored by ACTIVE.com, host of the world's largest directory of sports and recreational activities, as one of the Top 10 Spring Metric Century Rides in the country for 2016.
Bob Romness, who serves as the executive director for the Lincoln Volunteer Center, was thrilled when he learned that the ride had received such tremendous recognition. "We were so excited to get the news that the Tour de Lincoln was included in this top 10 category!"
"There are a lot of great rides in Northern California, as well as around the country and to be recognized nationwide by ACTIVE.com is a real honor," stated Romness.
