Tour de Ted

13 Courses, 14 Days & Hundreds of Miles for Cancer Research

We are so excited to be one of the beneficiaries of the Edward Jones Tour de Ted – Ride the Wire multi-state bike tour that commemorates & celebrates the life of the firm’s second managing partner, Ted Jones, and fundraises for cancer research, all in one two-week event, Sept. 23-Oct. 6.

The Edward Jones Tour de Ted stretches from Pueblo, Colorado, to St. Louis, Missouri, ending along the Katy Trail. Ted Jones was an instrumental force in the construction of the Katy Trail shortly before he lost his courageous fight with cancer. The Tour de Ted honors him and includes rides and celebration events in Manhattan on Sept. 28 and in Topeka on Sept. 29.
