Always the FIRST Saturday in December
Mission to Mission Bike Tour is an all volunteer, San Antonio charity event that provides biking challenges for riders at all levels. M2M includes a family friendly Mission Tour (17) on dedicated hike and bike paths as well as THREE extended tours: Performance (24), Endurance (48), and Century (62). Our annual tour is a notable celebration of the Missions National Historical Park-- now part of a World Heritage Site recognizing the cultural uniqueness of the Spanish Colonial period. The tours begin and end one fourth mile from Mission San Jose, and the Mission Tour offers the opportunity to visit all four missions within the Park.
*Extended tours share a common trunk route such that a rider may extend or contract a selected tour on the fly.
*Ride conditions include public roads, level to gently rolling terrain, and rural countryside.
*Tour Tee and lunch are included in registration.
*Additional lunches and tour tees are available for friends and Family
*Early Registration Discounts
*SAG will follow extended routes and be available at the main break point
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 and now meets BSA merit badge requirements. 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 15 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 Enddurance 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.
Note: The length of each route may be revised before the event as safety concerns, road conditions, or construction dictate. Route planning and maps by Cool Cats Cycling Club of San Antonio.
A special "Thank You" to San Antonio River Authority, City of San Antonio, the County of Bexar, and the National Park Service for providing the coordination and services that make the Mission to Mission Bike Tour possible.
