Alexian Brothers Tour Of Elk Grove
The Alexian Brothers Tour of Elk Grove is an annual bike race held in the Village. At its 5th year it is the number one ranked cycling tour in America. Athletes from around the world come to compete in the tour. There are 15 professional & amateur races with nearly $150,000 in total prize money, including the richest 3-day, 3-stage men’s pro cycling purse in the world. In addition there are three community cycling events: Mayor’s Challenge, Village Trustees’ Fun Ride, and Children’s Big Wheel Race.
In addition there are two evenings of community “Block Parties” on Friday and Saturday with live music, food, and fireworks. The weekend Kids’ Fest provides loads of fun activities for children. There is also a sports expo and concessions and retail area.
A portion of the proceeds from each event benefits Elk Grove Village’s Soldier Memorial Fund.
