This year’s theme was “The Three-Quarters Tour,” where cyclists discovered the rhythm and musical flavor, and cultural contributions of individuals, in and around the Alexandria community.
The tour – led by Alexandria Library staff members – highlighted many of the library’s diverse programs and resources, and offered participants the opportunity to socialize with other library and bicycling enthusiasts. During each stop, staff provided refreshments and light snacks to the cyclists. For more information about Le Tour d’Alexandria bicycle tour, please visit http://www.bit.ly/alexlibrarybiketour.
