OFFICIAL WEBSITE OF THE VIRGINIA MOSQUITO CONTROL ASSOCIATION
Thanks to all who sponsored, registered, donated, and participated in the 3rd annual Tour de Skeeter! We appreciate all of you! The webpages for the past TdS events are in the process of being combined and new photos from this year will be added to this page.
If you have any pictures or stories from this year or past Tour de Skeeters that you'd like to share, please send them to firstname.lastname@example.org Thank you!!
All registered participants this year were entered into a drawing to win a $200 Amazon gift card. Congratulations to the winner of the drawing (pictured left), Peter Petropulos!
The Tour de Skeeter is a fundraising event held by the VMCA's Student Competition Committee. This event serves to raise money for the annual award given to the winner of the student poster competition. Holding the event around National Mosquito Control Awareness Week also allows us to spread the message about the important work we all do during the year to serve the public and protect them from the nuisance and disease that mosquitoes can bring. The event is open to the public and set up as a biking activity but we'd like for people to feel comfortable walking, running, skateboarding, etc. - do what suits you!
Bike riding is a great way to get out of the house, get some exercise, and still keep a good social distance. Depending on restrictions, recommendations, and closures due to the COVID-19 pandemic we will be holding the main event on the Virginia Capital Trail that runs from Jamestown to Richmond, Virginia and meeting up close to the mid-point (~mile marker 22) at Indian Fields Tavern. We would love for other areas to participate so please contact us if you have a suggestion for another trail.
Please contact us at email@example.com if you have any questions.

Meeting Point: Indian Fields Tavern (12 - 4 PM)
9220 John Tyler Memorial Highway
(just past mile marker 22)
Charles City, VA 23030
There are several places to park your vehicle to ride for the day. Several past participants parked at the meeting point (tavern) and rode locally as far as they felt they could before turning back. Other parking options are listed below along with their mile marker (MM) and approximate distances to the tavern. It should go without saying but keep in mind, the distance you ride to the tavern, you'll have to ride back after!
You can check out the full list of parking options on the trail map
