The inaugural Tour de Lincoln was held May 2002, sponsored by the Lincoln Volunteer Center. The Tour began as a benefit bike ride for the Lincoln Volunteer Center and has grown to over 600 cyclists participants. The Tour offers a wonderful Spring day of riding the scenic back roads of Lincoln and South Placer County. The ride is fee based and includes a continental breakfast, well stocked rest stops along the routes, and a great post-ride BBQ lunch. Area bike shops provide minor repairs at the start/finish and at some of the rest stops for your convenience.

The event was taken over by Rotary Club of Lincoln where proceeds will be used to support our club projects. The 17th annual event will be held on Saturday, May 12th, 2018. The Tour offers four courses: The Pleasure Cruise (10 miles), The Rolling Hills (20 miles), The Country Climb (40 miles) and the Metric Century (63 miles).

The Pleasure Cruise will roll out of McBean Park and pass through the cottonwood trees that line the banks of the Auburn Ravine. The course consists almost completely of Class 2 bike lanes, and rolls along a section of the beautiful Lincoln Hills Golf Course.

The Rolling Hills is a shorter version of the Country Climb with beautiful scenery and less vertical gain.

The Country Climb is a beautiful ride winding through the rolling hills and countryside between Lincoln and Auburn. This route has beautiful valley views, challenging climbs (1400 vertical gain), and passes by several horse ranches. The Metric Century route is more of the same beautiful countryside, but with 3800 of vertical gain. See our Elevation Maps page for elevation information about these two routes.
