About the Ride:
Come join us for the 36th Annual Tour de Gap! It’s a great ride for a great cause. All proceeds from this event benefit Big Brothers Big Sisters Abilene. Ride through the rolling hills around Buffalo Gap, TX (just a few minutes south of Abilene), relax at the pavilion under the cool shade of the oak trees and enjoy the food trucks and raffles.
There are three race distances to choose from Saturday: 11 miles, 27 miles and 100K. Each distance will have a raffle held at the end of their ride. The top three finishers in each age-category in the 100K will be given prizes. Riders age 14 and under ride free with a paying adult in the 11 mile and 27 mile distances! They do still need to register, though. Check out tourdegap.com for the routes!
