The entire ride will cover approximately 30 miles over 4 segments andwill feature stops that highlight change that is occurring in our neighborhoods. Each stop will be sponsored by businesses and community groups and provide snacks, drinks and entertainment for the riders. The ride is configured to allow cyclists to complete segments if they do not feel comfortable riding the entire route.

The registration fee ($25 before August 1, 2011, $30 after) includes an official 2011 “Long Street Tour” t-shirt (if you register by August 1) and wristband along with drinks and food at designated rest stops, plus a free lunch at the hospitality tent.

Bike the C-Bus is the region's premier cycling event celebrating design, health & fitness, and urban lifestyles. “Bike the C-Bus” is considered a ride and not a race and will offer a variety of course options to accommodate everyone from recreational riders to hard-core fitness enthusiasts.
