Forget crowds, forget the hassle and come to Mount Vernon to ride Tour de Cypress on shaded country roads. The ride is the third Saturday in April. You’ll get a free hamburger, free beer, and a wonderful, warm welcome. Come early and enjoy the free Heroes Barbecue on Friday night. All five rides will be well marked and there will be rest stops approximately every five to ten miles for each of the five routes. Excellent SAG support will be provided. Camping and RV sites are available near town and at beautiful Lake Cypress Springs.
