History

rat-beach-bike-tour-circle-logoLet me tell you a little story. Once upon a time there was this, well, Rat. The Rat has a last name. It is Beach. Actually –

Legend has it that there was no Rat, but instead, Rat Beach was named for Right After Torrance. So, whatever the origin of the name, the Ride with the Tide was formerly named the Rat Beach Bike Tour – though the Tour was only launched from above Rats Beach and riders rode the Century and Half Century.

While for a while, the event Start and Finish was at Seaside Lagoon – the start / finish venue is now at Torrance Beach – where riders, friends and family can enjoy vistas of the entire South Bay Coast as well as the Peninsula – a nice beginning and end to this rather festive beloved ride.
