Whenever possible, all ride routes utilize state, county, and local roads that carry only light vehicle traffic. However, riders should expect some vehicle traffic, must obey Texas traffic laws, and must use caution when crossing major highways. Riders will be verbally reminded of this fact at the start of the ride.
We are offering 3 distances this year – 35,65, and 105 miles. Rural roads are paved near town (sadly) so the longer the ride, the more dirt/gravel encountered.
Please Note: All riders will be given a paper narrative of the course. When in doubt – follow the paper course description, as Garmin (or other brand) GPS will sometimes re-route a traveler to a road that is easier for a car to drive (but is not so fun for cycling). This happened last year – ignore this warning at your peril.
