July 24-25, 2021! Come ride THE GAP!
TdG returns for 2021:
More than ever, it’s a great ride for a great cause!
Join us for the 38th year of this Classic Midsummer Texas Ride.
Whether you want a speedy 100K ride or a shorter fun ride with the family, Tour de Gap has it all. Plus the best volunteers, fantastic food and a format that makes for a great weekend in the Abilene area. You’ll have plenty of time to look around, visit the Abilene Zoo, explore the hills in the Callahan Divide, and more. Remember, riders 14 and under are free with a registered rider!
Gathering Saturday morning under the centuries-old live oak trees at The Old Settlers’ Reunion grounds in Buffalo Gap, choose from 3 routes to suit your riding style. Lunch for each rider is included with their registration, and you can purchase an extra for those who aren’t riding. After the ride stay around for the podium prizes, plus a swag raffle of great bike stuff courtesy of Biketown.
Sunday headquarters is Main Street Station, on the south end of Buffalo Gap. We start the riders in the Steamboat Challenge Time Trial at 8:30 am, this year with a new 20K (12.5 mile) fast route. A complimentary continental brunch and awards ceremony follows, featuring cash prizes from Steamboat Cycling Club.
And last but for sure not least is why we do this: Big Brothers-Big Sisters Abilene-West Central Texas serves many hundreds of children throughout the area, matching them through a professionally-supported program with mentors who aim to inspire them to reach their fullest potential.
We’re eager to welcome you to Abilene and Buffalo Gap! Thanks to everyone who toughed it out through the past year and we’re looking forward to seeing you here!.
