The second annual Z-Tour bicycle ride was held July 21 under perfect weather conditions. The Z-Tour Steering Committee puts in countless hours to ensure a great riding experience on Bureau County’s beautiful blacktop roads. Well more than 300 riders participated in Saturday’s ride.
Everything about this event was top notch and well thought out. Rider safety was very apparent. Bureau County Sheriff’s Department officers offered traffic control at all highway intersections, and EMTs were on hand at Zearing Park. Not only does the Z-Tour benefit the Zearing Child Enrichment Center, it also brings riders from all over to experience Princeton and the surrounding area, staying overnight and eating and shopping.
Congratulations to the steering committee for a very well run event and a job well done!
