Mission Tour: The Mission Tour winds through historic neighborhoods and touches four Spanish Colonial Missions located along the San Antonio River. The route can be adjusted to meet cycling skills. The Mission Tour riders use dedicated bike lanes/paths and tour in small guided 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 17 mile ride. Notes on children riding M2M: * Children 10 & under ride free w/paid adult registration and minor registration form * 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 are required for all riders Performance 24: This 24 mile performance route retraces early Spanish trails as it loops southward beyond the Missions National Historical 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. Endurance 48: The 48 mile endurance route circles Calevaras Lake and provides a shortened "back door" alternative allows riders to shorten the Metric Century. The Endurance Route is primarily flat and utilizes city, state, and county roads through the mostly rural Southside.
Century 62: The 62 mile Metric Century duplicates the performance route and then explores the deep southside in a lazy circle of Calevaras Lake. Riders traverse the level countryside on city, county and state roads.
