Join me and over 3,000 other cyclists for tomorrow’s Tour Dallas, where I’ll be the “Official Starter” of the ride.
Tour Dallas is an annual cycling event with an emphasis on fun. The Tour is a relaxed ride — not a race — and there are three different routes of varying lengths so riders of all skill levels can participate.
The three routes are…
- 8 miles – This route tours downtown Dallas and makes a quick trip across the Trinity River into Oak Cliff and back.
- 20 Miles – This route takes in most of the sights of the 8 mile route, plus a route that tours Turtle Creek, Uptown, and much of East Dallas.
- 30 Miles – This route follows the 20 mile route, with an added trip around White Rock Lake.
The beneficiary of this year’s tour is Spokes for Folks, a Dallas-based non-profit that provides bikes to the needy.
You can register for the event tomorrow morning at Dallas City Hall (where the tour begins and ends). Registration is $40 per rider, and registration begins at 6:30am. (Children 12 and under ride for $10.) The tour begins at 8am, and all participants get a T-Shirt. After the tour we’ll have a Finish Line Celebration at City Hall Plaza, where Pizza Patrón will supply pizza for all riders.
So dust off your bike, round up the kids, and join me and my family at City Hall tomorrow morning for a great event!
