What is Tour de Pier? Tour de Pier is a unique fundraising event that brings one of the hottest indoor fitness activities — stationary cycling — to the gorgeous outdoors. The Inaugural Tour de Pier was held in 2013 at the iconic Manhattan Beach Pier in Southern California and raised over $339,000. By our 4th year, we set our sights on hitting $1 million mark and surpassed that milestone. In 2018, we raised over $1.3 million. Since 2013, Tour de Pier has raised more than $5.6 million for cancer charities.
