Welcome to the Tree House Tour de Cookie!
A day of fun, festivities and philanthropy…
We invite cyclists of all ages to join us on Saturday, May 6 for this exciting, fun-filled, and delicious bike ride from one cookie stand to the next. Choose between distances of 12, 27, or 43 miles, and enjoy the scenery and the food! The aim of the event is to raise awareness of child abuse prevention and promote the services offered by The Tree House. All proceeds of the Tree House Tour de Cookie benefit The Tree House CAC, enabling us to better serve our clients. It is a wonderful occasion during which individuals, families, and groups can enjoy a day of fun, festivities, philanthropy, and COOKIES!

*There is NO rain date. We ride rain or shine (although we've requested a beautiful day). In case of very severe weather, we reserve the right to cancel/alter/modify the race/course for safety concerns. There are no refunds and no transfers of entry fees. ALL riders MUST wear helmets and sign waivers. All children must ride with a registered responsible adult.
For safety related reasons, we cannot allow any pets at the event site.
Photographs and/or audio/video will be taken at this event. By taking part in this event you grant the event organizers full rights to use the images resulting from the photography/video filming, and any reproductions or adaptations of the images for fundraising, publicity or other purposes to help achieve the group’s aims. This might include (but is not limited to), the right to use them in their printed and online publicity, social media, press releases and funding applications. If you do not wish to be photographed please inform an event organizer.
Are there ID requirements or an age limit to enter the event?
Anyone can ride in The Tree House Tour de Cookie! Children must be accompanied by an adult. We recommend that children participate only in the short route. It is the safest route since it is on the Millenium Trail. Our other routes include more road riding and are better suited for experienced/older cyclists.
How do team members get the team discount rate?
Once a team reaches 10 adult registrants, each adult rider will receive a $5 refund. At that time the team captain will also be given a code to give to future team members so they may receive the discount at the time they register.
What are my transport/parking options getting to the event?
There is plenty of parking at the Johns Hopkins University, Montgomery County Campus. The closest metro stop is Shady Grove and that is 6 miles away.
What should I bring to the event?
Bring your bike, ID, helmet, water bottle, friends, and a happy outlook.
Where can I contact the organizer with any questions?
