The 5th Annual Tour de Francis Benefit Ride was on Sunday, May 5, 2019
Thank you for your support! We hope to see you again next year.

All dollars generated from this community event allow Xavier Catholic Schools to provide students opportunities for excellence in the classroom, fine arts, and in many extra-curricular and athletic experiences. In addition, every dollar helps pay the quality, dedicated staff and helps make a St. Francis Xavier education accessible to as many families as possible.

“The Tour” is about getting outside and enjoying your ride with family and friends.  We are really hoping to get the Xavier community together in a fun activity before heading to Xavier’s 47th International Food Fair!

The ride starts and ends at The CDW Building (4321 W. College Ave, Appleton, WI 54914).  It is the building directly across College Avenue from the main Entrance to the Fox River Mall.
  The Tour de Francis has 3 routes to choose from: 
  •  The 10 mile route caters to families, including those with small children.  There is   a rest stop at Fritse Park, with cookies, fruit, and water.  Kids can take a break   from riding their bikes and play on the Playground Equipment, or try the huge   slide on the hill.  Fox Cities Cycling Ambassadors, are trained by the APD in safe   riding skills and rules, and will be on hand to do “guided tours” on the family   ride.  The entire 10 mile family ride is on sidewalks or designated bike paths.    
  •  The 25 and 62.5 mile routes cater to more experienced riders. Both are well   marked with signs, and have fully stocked rest stops along the way.  The 25 and   62.5 mile rides are on open roads.
 Vehicles will be patrolling all routes in case of flat tires, mechanical fixes, etc.
