The 2020 Tour de Bier will take place on Sunday, August 9, celebrating BikeWalkKC's 10th Anniversary. The Tour explores Kansas City's brewing past and present, including North Kansas City, across the Missouri River on the Heart of America Bridge (KC’s first safe bike/pedestrian crossing over the river), through the River Market and the Crossroads Arts District. Longer routes cruise down to Westport and points south. The Tour de Bier KC has plenty of rest stops and support to help you along the way.

At the end of the ride, participants and the public celebrate not only the end of the Tour de Bier KC, but also Bike Month events for the region. Tour participants can choose lunch from local food and brewery vendors. Massages and other vendors will also be available. Proceeds from the Tour de Bier KC will benefit BikeWalkKC, which works to make Greater Kansas City a safer and more enjoyable place to walk, bike, and live.

The Lager tour is approximately 15 miles and hits all the highlights of brewing history in Kansas City. Roll by old breweries, ice houses and discover the best of Kansas City’s rich brewing history in a cool tour of Kansas City’s urban core. This tour will take you through North Kansas City, the River Market, Crossroads, and Downtown.

IPA Tour is approximately 30 miles, and the best of both worlds. This tour hits the historic highlights then stops for refreshments in Westport. The ride continues through lovely older neighborhoods south of the Plaza. Then you return to the post-ride party through Brookside, by the Nelson Atkins Museum and by lovely old homes in Kansas City’s famous historic neighborhoods.

Dunkel is approximately 50 miles long and is for those hammerheads who want to get in some more miles and learn about beer history. This route takes you past the major highlights, and then east to Crane Brewery in Raytown. After that, you return on the beautiful streets of southern Jackson County finish the tour riding through historic neighborhoods of Kansas City.

For all three routes commuter, touring, hybrid and mountain bikes are recommended, but not necessary. This is an urban ride, and riders will experience railroad crossings, pot holes, and rough spots. The Tour can be ridden with skinny tires but bring some tubes and a pump!
