What is TMD?  
 
TMD stands for Tour de Mad Dog.  The TMD Challenge consists of 21 stages,  (95 to 120 miles each) spread out over the course of the touring year, from March through October - ending by the last day of the club touring season. 

Modeled after the famed Tour de France, the Tour de Mad Dog is a Challenge, not a race. Your actual time on the courses will not even matter!  Riders must complete at least 10 stages of the tour to be considered an official TMD Challenge finisher.

The intent and spirit of the TMD Challenge is to foster group riding and Mad Dog camaraderie. 

All serious cyclists know what group riding is about. The TMD Challenge is designed to encourage groups of all abilities to work together to attain a common goal: finishing the stage! With that in mind, all riders should work together with his/her group to gain maximum advantage and maximum reward. 

This unique challenge series is very popular segment of the Louisville Bicycle Club with many of the stages attracting 30 - 40 riders. TMD Century rides are structured along known routes, with published GPS files available and turn-by-turn cue sheets. There are planned store stops, lunch stops and many stages include unique themes or visit notable landmarks and areas.
