Detail for the 2015 event will be posted here when available - meanwhile save the date:  9/22/2015-9/27/2015

Sept 30 - Oct 5, 2014

by Joy Warnick

2014 will mark the 40th anniversary of the HBC Fall Tour, so save the date now for this special event.  We will once again travel to Cape May, NJ with the ride down running from Sept 30 - Oct. 3, and the weekend in Cape May from Oct. 3-5, 2014.  As an added treat, this year’s Tour will coincide with Cape May’s annual Victorian Days celebration. The festivities are hosted by the Mid-Atlantic Center for the Arts and Humanities and features “a weekend of exciting and entertaining activities from history to murder mysteries, plus historic house tours, food and wine events and much, much more.”  And don’t forget all of the usual fun of trolley tours, Alpaca farms, kite flying, shopping, eating at the wonderful variety of restaurants, checking out the latest brews at the Cape May Brewery and just relaxing on the beach!


 

Over the past 40 years, the Fall Tour has evolved to become a very flexible cycling experience for all levels of riders.  You have many options including the full, four-day ride down experience or you can opt to join the tour “in progress” and ride only a few days as your schedule permits.  We will have a luggage transport vehicle again this year, so no need to worry if you don’t have the gear or desire to ride a self-contained tour.  We also welcome weekenders to join us in Cape May and go out on a variety of day rides hosted by HBC club members or explore the area on your own.  Cape May is a great place for new cyclists too since the terrain is exceptionally flat other than the occasional inlet or draw bridge and many roads have dedicated bike lanes. Don’t miss out on this wonderful opportunity to explore a beautiful Victorian landmark and share time with fellow cycling enthusiasts!  If you have any questions regarding the event, please feel free to contact Joy Warnick (This email address is being protected from spambots.

Registration Now Open

Sept 30 - Oct 5, 2014

Registration for Fall Tour is now open!!  Over the past months we have highlighted several of our favorite highlights of this annual tradition.  We hope that this has helped show why this trip has been such a great success for the past 40 years.   If you’ve never been on Tour before, this is a great time to try something new.  We pair all of our new riders with a seasoned Tour veteran who can guide you through preparing for the trip.  We are also offering luggage transport, so no worries if you don’t have panniers or a way to haul your gear each day.  If you’ve been on Tour before, we hope you have many wonderful memories and want to join us again to create new memories.
