Tour of Honor

The Tour of Honor is a great reason to hit the open road, honor our nation’s heroes, and contribute to a few good charities. The event is a season-long, self-directed ride to memorials and monuments around the continental U.S., Alaska, and Hawaii. Beginning April 1, 2017, riders are encouraged to visit as many sites as they want, using any route they choose.

Trophies will be awarded to the first three riders to visit all of the destinations in a state or specific region (e.g., New England or Mid-Atlantic). Pins and “Finisher” certificates will be given to all who visit a minimum of seven sites, and a “Jack Shoalmire Achievement Award” will be awarded to the person who visits the most memorial sites during 2017. Winners are encouraged to pick up their trophies at the fall Tour of Honor banquet in Cripple Creek, CO, on September 16.

The list of 2017 memorial sites will make its debut on the Tour of Honor website on April 1. However, riders can register now. Registration is $100 and includes a T-shirt, motorcycle flag, S/H, and a charitable donation. According to rider preference, $20 from each paid registration will go to the Fisher House Foundation, Operation Comfort Warriors, or Police and Fire: The Fallen Heroes. All profits after expenses will be divided equally between the three charities.
