Tour de Lake 2021

SAVE THE DATE – Tour de Buckeye Lake – Saturday, August 21, 2021

Bike Buckeye Lake will be closely monitoring the state’s safety recommendations related to large gatherings and COVID-19. Our current desire is to have a traditional Tour de Buckeye Lake this year where cyclists can gather safely to enjoy the company of others, patronize Buckeye Lake’s local establishments and take in some fun, post-ride entertainment.

Tour de Buckeye Lake is a great sponsorship opportunity for local businesses. The Tour brings nearly 500 riders to Buckeye Lake and we expect that number to grow this year. Tour sponsors are promoted on our website, to our 1,200+ Facebook followers, will be prominently displayed on signage at our event, and more. To become a sponsor, email
