The Rotary Club of Tryon announces that the presenting sponsor for the 30th Annual Fabulous 4th Bike Tour is again Wells Fargo Advisors of Tryon. The Tour, which will take place on Thursday, July 4, rain or shine will feature hundreds of riders taking to the scenic, rural roads of the Blue Ridge foothills in North and South Carolina. This bike tour, which has become a 4th of July tradition, raises funds for the Rotary Club of Tryon’s Gift of Life Program.

Mike Ashworth senior vice president-investment officer of Wells Fargo Advisors in Tryon—supported this charity ride last year.

Though the Gift of Life program was established by Rotary International in 1975, The Rotary Club of Tryon recently decided to use all Gift of Life funds locally by helping families facing the challenges associated with receiving specialized medical care needed for their children.

“I’ve seen the wonderful work that this program does for children in our community and am proud to work with Rotary again this year,” explained Ashworth.

Like last year, the tour will feature two event routes: the well-known 67-mile metric-century ride with over 7,800-feet of vertical climb through the Blue Ridge foothills in two states, and the shorter, more relaxed route of 34 miles in the Polk County area.
