Le Tour de Pork 2013 was the most successful ride to date.  We can't thank Turtle Run Winery owners, Laura and Jim Pfeiffer, enough for their generous support as hosts for Le Tour de Pork Jim was blown away by the support for the Ohio River Greenway from the over 300 riders who participated during Le Tour de Pork 2013.  He was also pleased to share the fruits of his labor during the post-ride lunch and wine tasting. Plenty of riders had their first taste from Turtle Run Winery's excellent wine list and we will do it all again in 2014.

Le Tour de Pork began with a group of cyclists who call themselves the "Fat Boys" and what started as fun and fitness is growing into an event with a purpose. Our first benefit ride in 2009 was a success with 70 riders participating in the event and in 2010 that number grew to 130 riders. By 2011 our support grew to just over 150, in 2012 we added over 100 riders with a total of 268 riders and 2013 brought 300 riders to support the Ohio River Greenway.  Le Tour de Pork has attracted riders from as far south as Knoxville, TN and north to Michigan to support the Ohio River Greenway.

Over the last three years we have been able to donate $7,500 to the Ohio River Greenway project. The donation has been largely used for "way find" signage to help people find the completed portions of the Ohio River Greenway.  This year we hope to give even more to the Ohio River Greenway and we will with your continued support. 

The mission of the Ohio River Greenway is simple; to provide a common linkage between the Communities of Jeffersonville, Clarksville, and New Albany, Indiana along the banks of the Ohio River and to promote a passive recreational environment for river access, while allowing each community to construct riverfront amenities to enhance the overall project.

What does that mean? Once completed, the Ohio River Greenway will make the Ohio River accessible to bikers, walkers and commuters of Southern Indiana and Louisville and make one of our most valuable resources a source of pride for all of our communities that border the Ohio River.  There's plenty of exciting news about the project's progress but it is going to take a grass roots effort to complete the project.  Go to http://www.ohiorivergreenway.org for more information.
