 2023 Tour de Bland Bike Ride

The Tour de Bland is an annual road cycling ride to support the fundraising efforts for the Relay For Life in Bland County, VA. The entire event is hosted by employees and friends of Hitachi Energy’s Dry-type Transformer factory located just a few blocks from the starting line.

Our focus is on the enjoyment of everyone who participates in the event. We offer four routes from a 15 mile Jaunt to the 4 mountain climb, 100 Mile Bland Century. See routes and details at

We aim to make it fun and rewarding to support those who are supporting us. We are in our 10th year and we want to go BIG! We hope to double our rider participation and expand our support funds to more charities in the area. We can ‘t do it without riders like you.

The changing of the leaves provides the perfect backdrop for a magnificent mountainous road bike ride.  We hope that you take the time to appreciate the surroundings as you climb to 3200′ elevations during the ride. 

There are also many other outdoor attractions that the area has to offer if you want to make a weekend of it.  Situated in the heart of the Jefferson National Forrest, the Blue Ridge Mountains, and the Appalachian Trail, Bland County has some of the most beautiful scenery in the country. Visit the THINGS TO DO and PLACES TO STAY pages at for more details about the area, the team, Relay For Life, or whatever else we thought you may be interested in.

Come join us this Fall in the beautiful mountains of southwest Virginia for the 2023 Tour de Bland Bike Ride.
