The Big Bear Cycling Association (BBCA) announces the return of the Tour de Big Bear in 2021. The event has been repeatedly hailed “Southern California’s Favorite Ride”.

The 2021 Tour de Big Bear will start and finish at Bear Mountain Resort.  Routes include:

  • 5k family fun ride
  • 25, 50, 70 or 100-mile routes
