The 2021 MPBC Tour of the Hamptons
Save the Date: September 19, 2021 (Rain or Shine)
It is MPBC’s intention to hold our Tour of the Hamptons on Sunday September 19th. As it stands, we have moved forward with the permitting process in the hopes that the local towns involved deem it safe to hold the event and grant us all necessary approvals.
Our goal is to present an event that is as “full-scale” as possible given current constraints. We will notify you here that we have the green light, and will send out more updates as soon as our registration pages are set up. Please check back here regularly as we expect things to progress quickly once we have a resolution with our permit approvals.
MPBC’s marquee annual event for almost thirty years, Tour of the Hamptons is a bicycle tour open to the general public to promote cycling, provide riders of all skill levels the opportunity to navigate the picturesque roads of Long Island’s South Fork, and raise funds for local charities, high school scholarships and the club’s own philanthropic programs.
Tour of the Hamptons winds through the flat terrain and rolling hills of the South Fork, passing farmland, beaches, wooded areas, mansions, and historic villages such as East Hampton, Wainscott, Sag Harbor, Amagansett and Montauk, before returning to its starting point in Southampton. The Tour features routes of 25, 53, 70 and 105 miles to suit all levels of cyclists, including scheduled 25-mile group rides led by our club’s experienced Ride Leaders.
