Everybody is invited to take part in one of Northern California’s most fun recreational cycling events/family/social gatherings – the Tour de Peninsula – held in scenic Coyote Point Park fronting the San Francisco Bay in San Mateo. Founded 19 years ago, the TdP is a perennial highlight of the Bay Area’s recreational social calendar, offering a variety of routes to suit everyone from young children and first time riders to serious cyclists. 2/20/31/63 mile course options. During and after the ride, a day of family fun activities takes place in the park, with a children’s playground, barbecuing, picnics, live music, and equally lively conversation.
