Tour and Ride Calendars

This page is an attempt to condense and categorize information on organized tours and rides by location. Our goal is to keep the page and links updated with the most current information. But you know how that goes! Any constructive criticism or news about your favorite rides is welcome as we will always be adding new information as we get it.
We got the idea for this page from Gene Bisbee over at Biking Bis and he has done a great job with his page. Our page is a long way from being a comprehensive compendium but hopefully it will be a good starting point for those planning a bicycle trip.
