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 a picturesque 31 or 62-mile course on the bike paths and streets of Long 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 bike festival with live entertainment, food, craft beer garden and much more cycling and family-focused 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 meetup at the Festival after the ride of your choice!
