Tim Litfin joined Wayzata Rotary armed with goodies left over from Tour de Tonka 2018 to award to members and generate excitement for this year's event.  Tim created the event 13 years ago and benefits the ICA Foodshelf.  “Bicycle riders participate because Tour de Tonka is pure fun."

  • 24 cities are in the Tour de Tonka
  • 8 routes
  • 42 states send riders
  • 100 mile route is highly desirable to riders
  • 88 was the age of the oldest rider in 2017
