Tour de Lincoln

Tour de Lincoln

May 12 2018
Lincoln, California, USA

The Tour de Lincoln was first held in May 2002, originally sponsored by the Lincoln Volunteer Center.  The Tour is currently sponsored by the Rotary Club of Lincoln and benefits the Club's charitable service projects. In 2016 it was named a "Top 10 Metric Century Ride" by active.com. The Tour offers a wonderful Spring day of riding the scenic back roads of Lincoln and South Placer County. The ride is fee based and includes a continental breakfast, well stocked rest stops along the routes, and a great post-ride BBQ lunch. Area bike shops provide minor repairs at the start/finish and at some of the rest stops for your convenience.

The Pleasure Cruise (10 mi.) will roll out of McBean Park and pass through the cottonwood trees that line the banks of the Auburn Ravine. The course consists almost completely of Class 2 bike lanes, and rolls along a section of the beautiful Lincoln Hills Golf Course.

The Rolling Hills (20mi.) is a shorter version of the Country Climb with beautiful scenery and less vertical gain.

The Country Climb (40mi.) is a beautiful ride winding through the rolling hills and countryside between Lincoln and Auburn. This route has beautiful valley views, challenging climbs (1500′ vertical gain), and passes by several horse ranches.

The Metric Century (63mi.) route is more of the same beautiful countryside, but with 3800′ of vertical gain. See our Elevation Maps page for elevation information about these two routes.

Helmets are required for all riders!

Non-Rider activities include McBean Skate Park, McBean Park playground, historic downtown shopping, local beer and wine tasting, and two beautiful public golf courses within 2 miles.
