Tour of the Hamptons 2024


SAVE THE DATE! September 22, 2024

The 30th anniversary of MPBC’s marquee annual event, Tour of the Hamptons, aka TOH, 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 historic villages of Sagaponack, Wainscott, East Hampton, Amagansett and Montauk Point before returning to its starting location in Southampton. Riders can choose from routes of 25, 53, 70 and 105 miles, all of which offer flat terrain, rolling hills, farmland, forests and mansion views along the way.

We hope to see you there on Sunday morning and we wish you all a great, fun, and safe ride! Thank you for being a part of this wonderful, long-standing tradition!
