Most of us are acutely aware that summer is rapidly slipping away from us. If you haven’t already started, in just a few short weeks you’ll be shopping for school supplies and new clothes for the fall semester. You’ll be swapping out your summer schedule for the busier one that happens each year when the kids return to school. There’s still time to make this summer one to remember with some great activities planned for August.
Big Bear has one of Southern California’s most active cycling clubs, and they have a number of scheduled events coming up in August. You can join the Big Bear Cycling Association several days each week for a variety of group rides for the full spectrum of riders. Some are geared toward experienced competitive riders, but many are intended for guests and tourists to enjoy the beauty of Big Bear by joining other riders on scenic routes. One of their biggest rides of the year is coming up on Saturday, August 6th. The Tour de Big Bear spans over 100 miles, and covers some of the most beautiful scenery found anywhere in the area. Shorter distances are available as well. Visit their website for more information and to sign up: http://tourdebigbearhc.com/.
As we’ve mentioned in our recent blogs, August also sees the arrival of the annual Renaissance Faire with all the great food, fun entertainment, and amazing period performers. This is one of our most popular events, so you’ll want to book your vacation rental cabin or estate early to make sure you’re all ready for some great jousting over a cup of mead. The Renaissance Faire runs weekends August 6-7, 13-14, 20-21 at Pederson’s Mill in Fawnskin.
Here’s a quick rundown on just a handful of other events you can enjoy during your stay with us. This is just a small sample!

Fridays and Saturdays are Honkey Tonk nights back at Wyatt’s Saloon. Enjoy live music with some foot-stomping great times. Doors open at 4pm, and the fun starts at 6pm.
