Always the FIRST Saturday in DecemberMission to Mission Bike Tour is locally produced charity event that provides challenges for riders at all levels. M2M includes a family friendly tour on dedicated hike and bike paths and four extended tours: Performance 30, Endurance 50, and Century 60. Our 19th annual tour is a notable celebration of the Missions National Historical Park-- now part of a World Heritage Site recognizing the cultural uniqueness of the Spanish Colonial period. The tours begin and end one fourth mile from Mission San Jose, and the family tour offers the opportunity to visit all four missions within the Park.
*Extended tours share a common trunk route such that a rider may extend or restrict his/her selected tour on the fly. *Ride conditions include public roads, level to gently rolling terrain, and rural countryside.
*Tour Tee and lunch are included in registration.
*Early Registration Discounts
Family Tour: The family route winds through historic neighborhoods and touches four Spanish Colonial Missions founded along the San Antonio River. The route can be adjusted to meet family riding skills or BSA merit badge requirements. Family riders will use dedicated bike lanes/paths and tour in small groups. A souvenir passport is available for riders to collect mission "stamps" at each site. Restrooms and water are available at registration and mission sites; water and fruit will be provided at a dedicated break point. Touring all missions creates a 12+ mile ride. Notes on children riding M2M: * Children 10 & under ride free w/paid adult registration and minor registration * Children must ride with trusted adult
* No lunch or complimentary Tee provided with free minor registration * No children's tricycle or bikes with training wheels will be permitted. * Helmets required for all riders Performance 30: The 30+/- mile performance route retraces early Spanish trails as it loops southward beyond the Missions National Historic Park and skirts the western reaches of Braunig Lake. The performance route is primarily flat and utilizes city, state, and county roads through the mostly rural Southside. Edurance 50: The 50+ mile endurance route circles Calevaras Lake and provides a shortened "back door" alternative allows riders to shorten the Metric Century.
Century 60: The 60+ mile Metric Century duplicates the performance route and then circles Calevaras Lake before exploring the deep southside in a lazy circle of Calevaras Lake. Riders traverse the level countryside on city, county and state roads.
Note: The lengths of each route is revised before the event as safety concerns, road conditions, or construction dictate. A special "Thank You" to San Antonio River Authority, City of San Antonio, the County of Bexar, and the National Park Service for providing the coordination and services that make the Mission to Mission Bike Tour possible.
