Tour de Ed
Chico Family Adventure Outdoor Adventurer

The Tour de Ed is an annual family friendly bicycle ride through the Chico area blossoming almond orchards.

Every year, Chico Velo remembers Ed McLaughlin, Chico Velo founder, by riding around the beautiful blossoming almond orchards around Chico. In 2007, local bicycle advocate, Ed McLaughlin, suffered a severe neck injury in a bicycle accident in Bidwell Park. A well-known figure in Chico, his injury mobilized the community to come to his support. His accident demonstrated the need for cycling education and safety within the community, where all the proceeds from the event are directed.
