Tour de Peninsula 2010 Family Bike Ride

3:45 PM PDT on June 23, 2010

"A Bay Area cycling classic, the Tour de Peninsula recreational bike ride and family social gathering has been a highlight of the Bay Area cycling calendar for nearly 20 years, and is the largest urban-based organized bicycle ride in the Bay Area. The 'Dirty Shirt' ride is back, this time at a great location nudged a few yards to the south from '09. There are a variety of bicycle routes to suit every type of cyclist, and full day of family outdoor activities.

The Tour de Peninsula offers four fully-supported route options on beautiful courses, with built in shortcuts, designed to suit everyone from young children and first time riders to serious cyclists. The rides - Kids, Beginner, Intermediate and Advanced - will take riders on popular Peninsula bike routes that visit numerous San Mateo County Parks, with breaks at rest stops and scenic sites along the way. Route options include:

Kids/Family Route - 1-3 miles on bike trail in Coyote Point Park

Short Route for beginner to intermediate cyclists - 20 miles

Long Route for intermediate to experienced cyclists - 31 miles
