Tour of Long Beach 2014
May 10, 2014
You're invited to one of the premiere bicycle fundraising events on the West Coast as the Tour of Long Beach returns on Saturday, May 10, 2014. Bring the entire family for a day of fun and see for yourself how Long Beach is the most bicycle friendly city in the U.S.!
Join in the fun by participating in the Tour of Long Beach's 5-mile Family Fun Ride or the picturesque 30-mile course on the bike paths and streets of Long Beach, the 62-mile through Long Beach to Huntington Beach or the 100-mile Cruz Gran Fondo which loops through Long Beach then heads south down the Southern California Coast through Sunset Beach, Huntington Beach, Newport Beach and Laguna Beach. All paths lead to a full-day Finish Line Festival with live entertainment, food trucks, beer garden and much more fun. Proceeds will support pediatric cancer research at Miller Children's Hospital Long Beach. Make it a family ride day with rides for all levels and meet-up at the Finish Line Festival after the ride of your choice!
