**Event Does not close roads
The Tour de BBQ, which will be held on Saturday, September 30, 2017, is KC’s tastiest event on two wheels. It is a “tour” – not a race – where riders choose between routes of 12, 35, and 62 miles. What makes the event unique is that the rest stops for each route are some of Kansas City’s most famous barbecue restaurants where riders are provided a sample of that restaurant’s offering. After cyclists complete their route, they’re greeted with frosty beverages, more barbecue and a free concert.
