Bike Tour of Lopez Island April 27, 2013. The Lopez Island Chamber of Commerce is hosting the 10th annual ?Tour De Lopez?. This popular ride is a non-competitive rural road tour with marked short and long routes on public county roads through the scenic landscape of Lopez Island.

For those already on-island, you can check-in at Lopez Village Park in Lopez Village and begin your ride from there. Your all-important lunch voucher will be given to you at check-in in either location. Also get a route map and details about the days ride. The tour routes include marked designated rest areas with snacks, water & restrooms available.
