Tour de Leaves was started in 1998 by the Henderson County Family YMCA. During the course of the first seven years, the venue for the start of the Tour changed from year to year. In 2006, Harmon Field became the venue for the Tour, and it has remained at this location since that year. At the end of the event in October 2008, the YMCA passed the Tour to Friends of Harmon Field who hosted it for four years. Serendipity Kids Ranch Outdoor Camp became the host in 2013. The course routes will remain the same, and the event will continue to be held on the third Saturday of October each year. Three routes are offered:  (1) Tour de Leaves Grande, 66.3 miles; (2) Tour de Leaves Lite, 31.9; (3) Tour de Leaves Family Fun Route, 4 and 8 miles.

This event raises money for scholarships to Serendipity Kids Ranch Outdoor Camp and other youth groups in Polk County, North Carolina.

About the Routes

Tour de Leaves Grande
        
This ride is the official ride of the TdL. It was created for the hardy rider who loves the challenges of bicycle tours in mountain terrain.
The ride climbs the 22 stairsteps or switchbacks of Green River Cove, an ascent of approximately 1,000'. It then goes through Saluda and the Lake Summit area before the steep, 1,000' descent back to Harmon Field.
Tour de Leaves Petite Grande

       This ride is not an official ride of the TdL. This ride is f
or those who desire the challenge of the stairsteps of Green River Cove, but wish for a shorter route back to Harmon Field. The cue sheet was made for those who decide they have had enough riding by the time they get to the top of the Green River Cove and want to return straight back to Harmon Field and desire to know how far they have riden. There are no TdL Volunteers or markings for this route once it leaves the main Grande route.
Tour de Leaves Lite
         
This ride is an official ride of the TdL, but is only minimally staffed. This ride was designed to give the weekend rider a glimpse of the beauties of Polk County during the colorful Fall season. There are two Rest Stops on this Ride. The Route is well marked, but there are not people at each turn to direct the riders. You are on your own to follow the course, although we do have one Sweep Vehicle who will make certain all riders arrive back at Harmon Field.
Tour de Leaves Family
         
This ride is not an official ride of the TdL. This ride was created purely for families to have fun together and enjoy the Fall colors. It is hoped that those who ride this route will soon move on up to our other routes. There may not be TdL Volunteers along this route and there are no markings for this route.
