Tour de Salvation

September 1 @ 7:00 am - 3:00 pm

Tour de Salvation
Searcy County Waterfall


Thanks for your interest in Tour de Salvation!

Your registration fee benefits The Salvation Army’s Pathway of Hope program. This program provides individualized services to families with children who desire to take action to break the cycle of crisis and vulnerability that repeats generation after generation. It seeks to address the root causes of poverty in addition to The Army’s history of compassionate serving. By helping families overcome challenges like unemployment, unstable housing, and lack of education, we can lead families down a path toward increased stability and, ultimately, self-sufficiency.

Join us for a family friendly, multi “bike”, ride in our beautiful Hot Springs!
You will have the option to ride your road bike only, MTB only, or BOTH!! Yes, we will have routes that include both road AND mountain. We will have a shuttle for your bikes at the exchange location.

After you have worked up a good appetite come celebrate your finish at our After Party. (Farmers Market) Your “tour” registration includes food and drink, t-shirt, and other awesome swag. (Family Ride includes Finisher Medal, food and drink only) We have put in a lot of time into planning, and months of meetings to bring you a fun unique experience in our beautiful city on your bike!

Come enjoy live music, food, and drinks provided by The Salvation Army Canteen, and good family fun! Not riding? No worries! You can buy a ticket to the after party and join in on the festivities by being a virtual rider.

SAG and Aid Stations will be available on each route.

***Riders must wear bib numbers (supplied with registration) to obtain food and access to certain areas of the route. Medical support will be available; however, medical personnel will not be dispensing comfort medications such as: aspirin, ibuprofen, Tylenol. Participants are asked to bring their own comfort medications as needed.

Full Tour de Salvation
If you plan to ride the Full Tour route, you have the option to bring two different bikes. Many riders will ride the road route with a road bike (or gravel bike) and then switch to their mountain bike (MTB). Or you can complete the entire ride on your MTB!  If you plan to switch bikes, remember to bring the shoes you need for each bike! You will need to “check in” your mountain bike and MTB shoes by 6:45 am on the day of the event. Your MTB will be shuttled to the switch point. Once you switch bikes at the trail, you will leave your road bike at the switch point and it will be shuttled back to the start point. After completing the mountain bike trail ride at the Pullman Trailhead, you will simply ride your MTB on the road for 2.5 miles back through downtown (bathhouse row) to the Farmer’s Market.
