See You at the Ride!

The 22nd Annual Tour the Montour, sponsored by Gateway Engineers, takes off on Saturday, September 21, 2024.

The ride is a non-competitive, family-fun bike ride that begins at mile marker zero in Coraopolis. Parking is at AHN Montour Junction Sports Complex, which is adjacent to the start/finish line.

Participants whose entry forms are postmarked by August 31 are guaranteed a 2024 Tour T-shirt (if requested during registration). Since supplies are finite, late entrants may not receive a shirt after the cut-off date. In addition, you may order additional T-shirts (adult sizes only, $15 to $20).

Tour Details

Gateway Engineers Tour the Montour takes place rain or shine.

For safety reasons, no headphones/ear buds. Helmets are mandatory.

Emergency-only mechanical assistance is provided at start/finish; participants and bicycles should be in good condition prior to ride.

Rest stops are positioned along the course every 5 to 10 miles, providing fruit, snacks, electrolyte replacement and water.

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

SAG (support & gear) assistance is available along the course, and the Montour Trail Safety Patrol will be deployed during the event.

A delicious post-ride lunch is provided at the Forest Grove Sportsmen’s Rod & Gun Club, near trail MM 1.5. You can choose a vegetarian lunch, if you wish, when you register. Riders are encouraged to bike to/from lunch.

Check out the great basket-raffle prizes during your lunch stop.
