Ascension Seton Introduces Austin's First European-Style Charity Ride, Tous á Vélo, at COTA
In collaboration with Circuit of the Americas and SCOTT Sports, Ascension Seton is producing a one-day European-style cycling event that will take place on April 3, 2022. The French way of saying “all on your bike,” Tous à Vélo is a non-competitive ride at the famed Circuit of the Americas with all proceeds benefiting Dell Children’s Medical Center. In what is planned to be an annual event, 2,000 riders will be able to participate in this uniquely-Austin experience complete with live music, food and beverages.
Entry fees start at $50, registration for the event is now open and 100% of entry fees directly benefit Dell Children’s Medical Center. Riders have the option to register for the Hot Lap event in which a select 200 riders can test their limits in a time-trial style race. For more information about the Hot Lap Experience click here.
Participation in Tous à Vélo through entry fees or philanthropic support directly contributes to Dell Children’s Medical Center’s ability to ensure no child goes without the life-saving care they need. With 70% of patients under-or uninsured, community support allows Dell Children’s to continue to provide specialty care to all children regardless of ability to pay.
