Woodinville is one of 13 communities participating in a three-state bike tour commemorating the life of Ted Jones who was instrumental in opening Edward Jones’ first branch office, according to Financial Advisor Tyson Farmer of Edward Jones in Woodinville.
The 13-stage tour is aptly named Tour de Ted Ride the Wire.
Woodinville’s phase of Tour de Ted will be held Sept. 22 beginning at 8 a.m. at the Edward Jones office in Woodinville.
The 16-mile roundtrip continues on to the Sammamish River Trail and south to Marymoor Park and then back to Woodinville. The event’s focus is to raise funds for cancer research, the disease that claimed Ted Jones’ life more than 20 years ago.
