Samaritan Ministries will host its eighth annual Tour de Llama bike ride and fundraiser at Divine Llama Vineyards in East Bend on Saturday, June 25. All proceeds raised through rider registrations and sponsorships will help Samaritan Ministries provide food and shelter to hungry and homeless neighbors in the Winston-Salem area.

Riders can choose 21-, 38- and 61-mile routes beginning at 8:30 a.m. on June 25. The three bike routes go through rural Yadkin County alongside beautiful scenery and minimal traffic. All rides are flat to hilly, and a rest stop will be located along the courses. After their rides, attendees are invited to stay at Divine Llama for tours, wine tastings, activities, music, food trucks and more family fun, including – of course – llamas.

The registration fee per rider is $30 and participants are required to be at least 18 years old. Registration is available at and must be completed by 3 p.m. on Thursday, June 23. All cyclists must pre-register and complete the required online waiver forms prior to the cutoff. There will be no registration available at the event.

“We had to cancel Tour de Llama in 2020 because of the pandemic, and the event returned in a limited capacity last year. We’re very much looking forward to bringing this much-anticipated community event back at full capacity this June,” Samaritan Ministries Executive Director Jan Kelly said. “Tour de Llama is a crucial fundraiser during the summer. Hunger and homelessness do not take a vacation, and this is a fun event to help those in need. I look forward to seeing our riders return on June 25.”

Arbor Investment Advisors is the presenting sponsor of the event. In addition, Ken’s Bike Shop, Divine Llama Vineyards and a number of other partners make this event possible. Sponsorships are available in three different tier levels. Visit Samaritan’s website for more information at 

Last year, 40 sponsors and hundreds of cyclists raised over $39,000. Samaritan Ministries’ goal this year is $35,000.
