The Tour of KC is a multi-day cycling festival celebrating health, fitness, and the City of Kansas City while promoting the cycling culture. With opportunities for every level of bicycle enthusiast, from the novice rider to the professional racer, there is something for everyone.
Cyclists can participate in non-competitive events including the area’s first Gran Fondo. Those looking for something a little more thrilling can take part in any, or all, of the weekend’s race events. Kids can join in the action on the rides or take part in the free Kids Bike Race.
Spectators and participants will enjoy a weekend full of fun, fast racing, and various festival activities.
2016 Full Route Results
The 2015 Tour of KC Gran Fondo was a great success and we are looking forward to an even better event in 2016. We had hundreds of riders take to the roads last year. After the ride, we had a great turnout for our after-party at Next Door Pizza.
The 2016 Tour of Kansas City Gran Fondo will once again start and finish at New Longview in Lee’s Summit, Missouri. We will be utilizing the same route as last year, an out-and-back route utilizing the first 1/2 of the 2014 route.
Official route options include 20, 40, 60, 75, and 100 miles. Riders have the option of turning around at any point on the route to return to the start for varying mileage.
20 MILES – 40 MILES – 60 MILES – 75 MILES – 100 MILES
Once riders arrive at the finish, they can join the rest of the Gran Fondo participants at the after-party. We have partnered with LongBell Pizza Co. to provide riders with pizza after the ride. They will also be serving beverages and riders can order additional menu items if they choose. Riders will receive a generous 25% discount on food as well as happy hour drink specials. In addition, riders will receive a $3 voucher from TKC to put towards their tab as well! It all adds up to a great deal!
The after-party will be located directly on the finish line; kickback, relax, enjoy a cold beverage, and cheer on your fellow riders as they finish their rides.
Due to the holiday weekend we are not having an early packet pickup. Riders can pick up their timing chips and numbers on the morning of the event at the registration table.
Early registration is open through April 11th and is only $40. Starting April 12th, online registration is $45. Onsite registration will be $50. So sign-up early and save!
Event is rain or shine, no refunds. As this event serves as a non-profit fundraiser, in the unlikely event that the event is cancelled due to severe weather, all entrants’ entry fees will be converted over to a
annual membership in MOBikeFed.
