Tour of Long Beach

May 12 2018
Long Beach, California, USA
The Memorial Medical Center Foundation invites you to one of the premiere bicycle fundraising events on the West Coast as the Tour of Long Beach returns on Saturday, May 14, 2016 to benefit pediatric cancer research at Miller Children's & Women's Hospital Long Beach. Bring the entire family for a day of fun and see for yourself how Long Beach is becoming the most bicycle friendly city in the U.S.!
 
Join in the fun by participating in the Tour of Long Beach's 5-mile Free Family Fun Ride, or the picturesque 30-mile course on the bike paths and streets of Long Beach, the 62-mile through Long Beach to Newport Beach or the 100-mile Cruz Gran Fondo which loops through Long Beach then heads south down the Southern California Coast through Sunset Beach, Huntington Beach, Newport Beach and Laguna Beach. All paths lead to a full-day Finish Line Festival with live entertainment, food trucks, beer garden and much more fun.
 
Whether you ride for exercise or fun, join us and help support the children and families at the Jonathan Jaques Children’s Cancer Center at Miller Children’s & Women’s Hospital Long Beach.
