TOUR DE LAVENDER CYCLING EVENT
Annual Bicycle Ride Through the Lavender Farms of the Olympic Peninsula
Imagine vistas of snow-capped mountains, a wide blue sea, sun-filled skies and multi-hued fields of wondrous lavender. This is the “Tour de Lavender,” an annual event for all cyclists to enjoy.
Since 2013, when it started as a small, local summer ride, it’s grown to become the premier cycling event on the Olympic Peninsula. These annual rides are where cyclists, young and old, beginner to expert, come to celebrate the stunning beauty of the Olympic Mountains, the splendor of the Salish Sea (also known as the Strait of Juan de Fuca), the sweet scent of lavender filling the air on a summer’s day, and the welcoming warmth and hospitality of the lavender farmers and others who call this magic place “home” and relish sharing its pleasures.
With a family-oriented Fun Ride and the challenge of a Metric Century, the rides offer something for all cyclists, whether they’re looking for a relaxed ride with friends and family or aiming for a “personal best” effort.
more than just a ride – it’s an experience
