The Tour de Whatcom has a new owner.
Todd and Jody Williams, the annual bike event’s previous owners, have agreed to transfer its ownership and operation to Whatcom Events, a nonprofit group that also runs the Ski to Sea and Muds to Suds races.
The Tour de Whatcom has been operating in Bellingham and Whatcom County for eight years. The bike ride raises money for local nonprofits.
Last year, it gave $20,000 to The Bike Shop along with additional sizable donations to local groups and high schools.
