2022 Tour the Montour Bike Ride Fundraiser

Ride Details

The 2022 Tour the Montour, sponsored by Gateway Engineers, is a non-competitive, out-and-back bike ride along the Montour Trail starting at ~MP 4.8. Event registration includes rest stops with snacks, on-trail rider support, hot lunch close to the finish, and basket chance items. There are also super raffle prizes. Choose a standard-length ride — from a short family-fun ride to a metric century — or custom-design your own distance.

The Tour is an out-and-back bike ride. Below are the recommended event mileages.

We ask you to pick a ride distance for food- and rest-stop-planning purposes only. You are not obligated to ride the distance you select.
  • 62 miles
  • 44 miles
  • 24 miles
  • 12 miles
  • 6 miles

Century and 44-mile riders should maintain 10- and 8-mph pace, respectively, to finish the course while rest stops and lunch are still open.

For safety reasons, no headphones allowed, and helmets are mandatory.
