Route Information

Enjoy one of our curated routes; explore our beautiful lake and the surrounding countryside.

  • 63 mile: Ride around the lake via the path along the dam, scenic neighborhoods and farm roads with plenty of opportunities to explore restaurants and retail businesses along the way and take an extended adventure up to the Dawes Arboretum to explore all the botanic beauty the Arboretum has to offer. There will be a well-marked cutoff that will shorten the ride if you want to make a mid-course correction.
  • 28 mile: Ride around the lake via the path along the dam, scenic neighborhoods and farm roads with plenty of opportunities to explore restaurants and retail businesses along the way.
  • 11 mile: Pedal along the lakefront via the path along the dam. Perfect for families.

Routes for 2024 have NOT been finalized. They are finalized the week before the Tour based on construction projects and road conditions, but the routes should be representative of the final 2024 routes.

On Site Registration And Start Times

We have staggered the start times to minimize registration lines and get most riders back to the festival at around the same time to enjoy the festival together. These are the times that Registration opens for these routes.

  • 28 mile – 8:30am-10am (tentative)

Rider Support

  • Routes will be marked for easy navigation and will be available via the Strava app and Ride with GPS
