Registration for the 2018 Tour de Lavender opens officially on February 2nd!
As always, the Tour is the first Saturday in August—August 4th this year—and planning is already well underway as we strive to make this year’s event the best ever. Each year we get a lot of great compliments and excellent suggestions and we try to incorporate as many as we can to make this an experience you’ll love and want to return to every year.
Save the date and start planning your special Olympic Peninsula vacation…
The Tour de Lavender has become the region’s premier cycling experience—visiting world-class, cyclist-friendly lavender farms, riding the scenic Olympic Discovery Trail, and taking in the panoramas of the snow-capped Olympic mountains, the blue-water expanse of the Salish Sea, and the warm Peninsula hospitality.
The Tour, of course, has options for cyclists of all levels and abilities:
- For families and the casual rider, there’s the Fun Ride where you take a leisurely tour of the farms, setting your own pace and the distance you want to ride over a generally flat course.
- For those seeking a challenge there’s the Metric Century ride—a 62.5 mile route linking all the farms while taking you up into the foothills of the Olympic Mountains just south of Sequim.
This year we’re planning a dynamite After-Ride Celebration Party with some fantastic door prizes you won’t want to miss out on! And if you’re up for it, there’s always the option of tackling the 17 mile trek up to the summit of Hurricane Ridge the very next day–the “Ride the Hurricane” event on Sunday, August 5th.
So come early and stay after!
Enjoy the Tour and all the beauty the Olympic Peninsula has to offer, especially the wonders of Olympic National Park. Discover a whole new world of cycling adventure and one of the best-shared “secrets” around:
