2021 Ride - Texas

Let’s Ride Together!

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. Join us for a weekend getaway in TX Hill Country!

The Ride to End ALZ Texas will implement safety protocols including physical distancing, contactless registration, hand sanitizing stations and more at the event. Per CDC guidelines around crowded outdoor settings, we ask that all ride attendees be vaccinated against COVID-19 or wear a mask when in an overcrowded area. Masks will be available on-site.

We will continue to closely monitor CDC, state and local guidelines to ensure our event adheres to recommendations and is safe for attendees. For the health and safety of our constituents, the Association asks that all volunteers acting on behalf of the Alzheimer's Association at outdoor in-person events be vaccinated against COVID-19 or receive a negative COVID test during the week prior to the event
