About This Ride
4 routes available for riders of all skill levels!
All routes start and finish at the Blue Hole Regional Park in Wimberley, TX, which is considered one of the hidden gems of Central Texas. The 20-mile course is perfect for beginners that want to enjoy the view of the cypress trees and wildlife while riding along the Blanco River and through the flattest part of the Texas Hill Country that you can find! The 50 and 70-mile routes will be a bit more of a challenge and quintessential hill country heading into Driftwood and passing by some unique exotic animal farms and the wineries that are making this area extra special. The 100-mile is for those of you truly looking for the Hill Country challenge and you'll need to train to make sure your legs are ready for some extra climbing! All route distances are currently approximate and are subject to change in distance just slightly. Final route maps will be posted closer to the event.
5-10 mph; 1-3 hours to complete
If you have a bike or are brand new to cycling and you are ready to change the future of Alzheimer's disease, then the 20-mile route is perfect for you! You will roll to the starting line after the long distance riders depart and experience a sendoff that will leave you with goosebumps. You will head along the Blanco River as the other routes do, but instead of the true rolling hills, you will make a nice loop back to Blue Hole Regional Park where you and your family can plan on taking a dip in the crystal clear waters to celebrate your accomplishment!
10-13 mph; 4-5 hours to complete
This route is the perfect mix of a mid-level challenge and includes scenery that can’t be beat! It’s simply the ride for those of you that take on the challenge for the food and drinks (you know who you are), so you can come back in time to enjoy a frosty beverage and Salt Lick Catered BBQ! The 50-mile route is a way to enjoy the hill country and it will blow you away (without making you bonk). Ride by the unique property and the ranches that make TX one of the greatest places in the country. You’ll see plenty of Longhorns on this route!
14-17 mph; 4-5 hours to complete
If you consider yourself an avid cyclist, but also want to get back in time to enjoy the after-party, then this is the route choice for you! Experience the true hill climbs that give hill country the name with approximately 1,000+ feet in elevation gain.
18-22 mph; 5-6 hours to complete
