Registration opens on February 1st, through the Chamber website: www.lopezisland.com, and at www.active.com.
This very popular non-competitive bicycle tour of Lopez Island is brought to you by the Lopez Island Chamber of Commerce and is the kickoff event for cycling in the beautiful San Juan Islands. Whether you make it a day trip or make it a weekend getaway you will not be disappointed! Many of our riders return every year for this event.
There are four routes (5, 12, 17 & 31 mile) that are marked with our unique recycled bicycles with two starting points – Odlin Park at the north end close to the ferry landing, and Lopez Community Center in Lopez Village. There are three designated rest areas along the route that offer great bakery treats provided by The Galley Restaurant, fresh organic fruit provided by Blossom Grocery, water and other assistance if needed. Rest areas open at 8:00 a.m.
All routes end in the Village at Lopez Community Center where you will enjoy a 3 course lunch. Cyclists and locals alike enjoy lunch, a beer garden and music provided in the Pavilion. On-site massage will be available for those who want to really relax!
Tour de Lopez is a fundraising event for the Chamber of Commerce to cover the costs of operating and maintaining the public restrooms, showers, and grounds in Village Park. It serves as a great introduction to Lopez for first time visitors – many riders come back throughout the year. Hope to see you April 25th!
