About the Ride:
Thanks to everyone who participated in last summer’s Tour de Gap, getting near 300 riders! For next summer, we’re planning some pretty awesome things to help celebrate its 35th riding. The main thing right now is to put that July weekend on your calendar:
Friday, July 21, 2017: A 35th Anniversary Dinner celebration at the world-famous Perini Ranch Steakhouse
Saturday, July 22, 2017: The same selection of routes you’ve come to love, plus we’re stretching out the 52 miler to become a Metric Century! (62 mi.)
Sunday, July 23, 2017: A brand-new morning event revolving around a 7.5 mile hill climb, the hardest one in the hills of the Callahan Divide! Stay tuned for the announcement as we near the first of the year.
West Central Texas’ premier summer ride starts and ends in the cool shade of the centuries-old live oaks at the Old Settlers’ Reunion Grounds in Buffalo Gap, Texas 79508. Now in its 35th year, the Tour de Gap offers distances for everyone with course distances of 62, 27 and 11 miles. We encourage family participation, as kids 14 and under can receive a free t-shirt and can ride at no cost if they’re accompanied by a registered adult.
Buffalo Gap has unique shopping, and is the home of the famous Perini Ranch Steakhouse. Plus you’re only a few minutes from the Mall of Abilene with its many stores.
The routes wind through the wooded hills of the Callahan Divide, which as the northern end of the Edwards Plateau, has some challenging climbs. Chip timing will be by Cadence Sports. First three places in each age category will get to choose a prize from an assortment provided by Biketown. Additional prizes are available through a raffle and door prizes. Your registration includes free breakfast burritos, so pull in to the reunion grounds early!
