Tour de Max is an annual bicycle tour through Marshall County, Indiana sponsored by Culver Tri Kappa. Proceeds from the ride are used in a manner that enriches our community as a whole. Among the many programs and projects we fund are college scholarships for high school seniors, as well as continuing education grants, a annual student art show, the Culver Community Schools' nurse, books and supplies to the school library, Pathfinders, Real Meals, Beaman Home, Riley Children's Hospital, and many other community events.
10 Mile Route
Beginning in Culver, riders can take a 10-mile ride around Indiana's second largest natural lake, Lake Maxinkuckee. Enjoy the rolling hills, beautiful homes, and lake views as you travel clockwise around the lake.
30 Mile Route
For a bit more of a challenge, riders can add another 20 miles to the lake route. We've changed the route to take you south for a ride along the Tippecanoe River before heading north again.
63 Mile Route
To complete a metric century, you'll follow the 30 mile route back to the Beach Lodge and then ride north to the Chief Menominee Monument and back to complete 63 miles. Click on the heading to take a look at the map.
Most roads are two lane country roads and all are marked for the ride.
