HomeSummer Breeze Bike Tour

This August tradition is back with some great changes!
Summer Breeze is the last big ride of summer and you won't want to miss it... especially this year! We have lots of exciting primo new road to share with you. Low traffic, scenic countryside, you and your friends = awesomeness on a beautiful summer day!

Parking at Longview Community College (registration/check-in will be across the street in New Longview behind Gusto Coffee Bistro — see below for details!)

Sunday, August 27, 2017. Heading south and then to the east and back in a series of well-thought-out, picturesque loops, this will be a new version of Summer Breeze. Featuring all of the road-riding-goodness you loved in the past while including some new sections of pristine pavement and gentle rollers.

The sags will be on point and hungry riders will be met at the end of the ride with a chef-prepared brunch that will include goodies from our friends at Gusto Coffee and entertainment that will have you Jammin’ while you enjoy a delicious craft beer from our friends at Coop Ale Works.

Summer Breeze is a family-friendly event not to be missed!

Choose from 100 miles, 90 miles, 70 miles, 50 miles or a relaxed 30-mile tour.
CKC ride marshals will also be on hand with tips and help for new cyclists. Final routes will be included on this page shortly.
