Join us on Saturday, April 29th, 2023 for the 17th Annual “Tour de Lopez”. This is a great eco-friendly, family event – come for the day or come for the weekend. It’s a non-competitive rural road tour with marked short and long routes (3.1, 5, 10, 18 and 31 miles), on public county roads through the scenic landscape of Lopez. Registration includes the Saturday ride, 3 refueling rest areas with yummy treats, a wonderful plastic-free buffet lunch, live music, and a beer garden highlighting our local brewery. Be sure to register early as this is typically a sell-out event with limited registration. WSDOT Ferry system is providing 4 days of free parking for the event so make sure and take advantage of this gas-saving opportunity!
The tour routes are marked with our unique recycled bicycles – designated rest areas have water, snacks and restrooms. The lunch is served from 11:30am-2:30pm at Bargreen’s field next to the Blue Heron Bistro. For those on a day trip, the ride back to the ferry landing is about 4.5 miles from the Village.
The Tour de Lopez is a major fundraiser for the Lopez Island Chamber of Commerce and Visitor Center. Proceeds from the event are used for the maintenance and operation of the Lopez Village Park shower and restroom facilities.
Since 2004 the Tour has been the kickoff event for cycling in the beautiful San Juan Islands and serves as a great introduction to what Lopez Island has to offer visitors. 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.
A big Thank You to the County Parks, Recreation, and Fair Department for co-producing the 2023 Tour de Lopez!
