Virtual PNC Tour de Lou


Over the past several months, since our initial postponement, we have been working to reschedule the 2020 PNC Tour de Lou for later this month. However, as we’ve continued to monitor the developments surrounding COVID-19 in the recent weeks, we’ve determined that the in-person Tour de Lou will not be able to be held this year.

We will still be offering a Virtual PNC Tour de Lou Ride, Sponsored by PNC and Kindred Healthcare.

Register for the virtual ride in 2020 through September 14th.
