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 8:00am.
All routes end in the Village at Lopez Community Center where you will enjoy a 3 course lunch provided by The Galley Restaurant. Cyclists and locals alike enjoy lunch, a beer garden and music provided by (TBA) in the Pavillion. On-site massage will be available for those who want to really relax!
Commemorative artwork by well-known local artist Christa Malay has been designed for posters, t-shirts, sweatshirts and other merchandise that will be available for sale on-site as well as at the Chamber office.
Registration is limited to 900 riders and has been sold out before the event for the past several years. Register now if you want to be part of this fun event. Registration is available online with www.active.com or thru the Chamber website at www.lopezisland.com.
Tour de Lopez is a major fundraiser for the Chamber of Commerce and serves as a great introduction to what Lopez Island has to offer visitors. Many riders return throughout the year with family & friends. Proceeds from the event help cover the various activities of the Chamber, including the maintenance & operation of Village Park.
