Tour de Optimism is one of primary fundraising events for our club. Ride cost is $40 per person. This ride is going to be a "virtual" ride . Riders will pick a ride and head out on their own, or in a COVID19 safe group. For more information on ride options and routes go here. We are offering free neck gators to the first 80 registrants to commemorate our virtual Tour de Optimism, and the unusual times we are traveling through together. For those with a competitive edge, we are offering a photo contest. We have 5 categories listed below:
- Best Urban Photo

- Best Mural/Bicycle Photo
- Most Optimistic Photo
- Best Dressed Rider Photo

Last, but not least we welcome those that want to be a part of giving back to the kids in the community by offering a Couch Potato category. You can help the kids and sit on the couch while others do the riding!
The Optimist Creed
Promise Yourself ...
To be so strong that nothing can disturb your peace of mind.
To talk health, happiness and prosperity to every person you meet.
To make all your friends feel that there is something in them.
To look at the sunny side of everything and make your optimism come true.
To think only of the best, to work only for the best, and to expect only the best.
To be just as enthusiastic about the success of others as you are about your own.
To forget the mistakes of the past and press on to the greater achievements of the future.
To wear a cheerful countenance at all times and give every living creature you meet a smile.
To give so much time to the improvement of yourself that you have no time to criticize others.
To be too large for worry, too noble for anger, too strong for fear, and too happy to permit the presence of trouble.
The Optimist Creed was first published by Christian Larson in 1912 and adopted (in a shortened version) by Optimist International in 1922.
To develop optimism as a philosophy of life utilizing the tenets of the Optimist Creed; to promote an active interest in good government and civic affairs; to inspire respect for the law; to promote patriotism and work for international accord and friendship among all people; to aid and encourage the development of youth, in the belief that the giving of one’s self in service to others will advance the well-being of humankind, community life and the world.
By providing hope and positive vision, Optimists bring out the best in kids.
