Introducing the Steamboat Mountain Challenge – New for 2017!

To further celebrate the 35th anniversary of the Tour de Gap, we’re adding an optional Sunday morning event to the mix. It’s a 7.2 mile hill climb, starting from the same starting line as Saturday’s ride at the Old Settlers Reunion grounds. First you’ll head out of Buffalo Gap to Belle Plain Road. Turning right, you’ll encounter the first short but tough climb up Belle Plain. After a bit, you’ll take another right onto CR 127 and then CR 650 where you’ll have short periods of 13 to 20% grades. Here’s the route. It’s an accomplishment to finish!

The ride will be staged as an individual time trial, with riders starting at one minute intervals. You’re welcome to bring supporters to line the route to cheer you on. For spectators, we recommend driving to the top and leaving the car there. It is not a closed course, but your fans can hike down the road to a good viewing spot. There’s a discounted entry fee if you are riding on Saturday, see BikeReg’s registration page for more information, or post a question below.

Gearing up for Tour de Gap 2017!

We’re gearing up for the 35th Annual Tour de Gap! This summer, we’re planning some pretty awesome things to help celebrate its 35th riding:

Saturday, July 22, 2017: The same selection of routes you’ve come to love, plus we’re stretching out the 52 miler to become a Metric Century! (62 mi.)
Sunday, July 23, 2017: A brand-new morning event revolving around a 7.2 mile hill climb, the hardest one in the hills of the Callahan Divide!

Tour de Gap Riders: Where they’re from

Pretty amazing info that Bikereg gives you. We wondered where Tour de Gap riders came from, since we’re getting ready for the 35th annual. So we put it all in a blender by hometown zip code, and found out that while there are a bunch from the Key City of Abilene, we see riders from the Permian Basin, lots from San Angelo, and cities all over Texas and elsewhere. Call a friend or two and suggest you all head to the shady oak trees of the Old Settlers’ Ground at Buffalo Gap for 2017’s Tour, July 22!
