The Tour de Grandview Cycling Classic has been a fan favorite for more than 25 years. The race through the tree-lined streets of Grandview Heights proves to be one of Ohio’s premiere cycling events. The race attracts an international field of more than 100 professional cyclists; spectators of all ages as well as cycling enthusiasts from throughout the Midwest enjoy the world-class bicycle racing through the suburban streets of Grandview Heights.

Putting on an event of the size and quality of the Tour de Grandview Cycling Classic takes the cooperation and hard work of an entire community. As the Tour is a not-for-profit event, volunteers provide a large chunk of the foundation for this community favorite.
Volunteering for the Tour de Grandview offers a unique opportunity to support a beloved community event, meet pro cyclists, and also feature your business. Volunteers can help by setting up for events, acting as course marshals during the races, working at the Street Party and cleaning up after events. Certain jobs require volunteers to be over the age of 21.
