August started off with such excitement here in the Big Bear Mountains, as hundreds of cyclist appeared for the Annual Tour de Big Bear event that took place August 1st.

Over 1700 riders were cruising the area on 25, 50 70, and 100 mile rides and Big Bear Lake was a gorgeous backdrop!

The Knickerbocker hosted a dinner during the week for a group of bikers. The riders enjoyed the new Knickerbocker Burger – surely the best burger on the Hill, and finished the night with our famous New Orleans Pralines.

Make plans early to join us next year for Tour de Big Bear, August 6th, 2016! Special rates for all cyclist! For more details on Tour de Big Bear.

This was my first year to ride and I’ve fallen in love with cycling in the mountains! Even though there is a year until next year’s Tour de Big Bear, there’s still months of wonderful biking weather here at Big Bear Lake. After a day of cycling, come home to Knickerbocker Mansion where you’ll enjoy fine dining and wonderful Big Bear accommodations.
