Mission Statement

The Tour de BBQ is KC’s tastiest event on two wheels. It is a "tour" - not a race - where riders choose between routes of 15, 35, and 62 miles. What makes the event unique is that the rest stops for each route are some of Kansas City’s most famous barbeque restaurants where riders are provided a sample of that restaurant’s offering. After cyclists complete their route, they're greeted with Boulevard Beer, more barbeque and a free concert.

Funds raised by the Tour de BBQ support the Midwest Cancer Alliance's Transitions Clinic - a program for young adult survivors of pediatric cancer. The Transitions Clinic is a partnership between the University of Kansas Cancer Center and Children's Mercy Hospital. The Tour de BBQ will provide funds for a nurse navigator to assist adolescents as they transition from pediatric to adult oncology treatment.

Since its inception in 2009, the Tour de BBQ has donated $400000 to fight cancer in Kansas City. To view videos about our event, learn who we help and what this event is about, click here.

Description

Volunteers support is an essential part of this event. Volunteers support the racers before and after the event and most importantly during their ride by offering refreshment at one of the several BBQ restraurants.
