Dear Potential Sponsor,
We are currently in the process of organizing the 2021 version of Tour de Bluff. Tour de Bluff is an annual bicycle themed event produced and managed by Novel T’s and made possible through partnerships and sponsorship funding.
Tour de Bluff was created for people of all ages to learn the safe way to enjoy bicycling. Anyone can participate; those who are just learning to ride a bicycle, those who ride regularly, and those who haven’t been on a bicycle since they were kids. Your support is not only valuable to us, but it can also be profitable for the City and help demonstrate your ongoing support for a healthy and safe community. Tour de Bluff 2021 is an opportunity for participants to see and participate in the rebuilding of a great Central Arkansas community. Tour de Bluff 2021 has fun routes and activities that will make their experience even more fun than before!
Tour de Bluff partners enjoy many promotional opportunities. These opportunities include direct access to health - minded citizens of this community and visitors to this community. Our goal is to spread the word about Tour de Bluff to as many places as possible in an effort to increase participation, promote Pine Bluff, and highlight one of the many exciting activities that happen here. You can be a part of this event with your sponsorship. Sponsorship levels and their benefits are listed on the enclosed list. The value of partnering with you would be of great value to both you and Tour de Bluff.
