Everyone get yours bikes ready cause it's Waggin Trail Bike Ride Time!!

The weather forecast looks great and all is set for this year's Waggin Trail.

Don't forget, we have moved the start location to the Outlets At Hillsboro (outlet mall on I 35 North in Hillsboro) and registration starts at 7:30am with the ride starting at 9am.

This year, we have two new partners supporting the ride, Black Eyed Pea restaurant, and Brookshire's Grocery.  Both will be at the start/finish and Brookshire's is also manning one of our rest stops - the one at Hwy 77 and FM1243 (supports all routes).

Speaking of rest stops.  This year we have converted all of our previous "cooler only stops" to full rest stops.  That adds three new rest stops.  The one just mentioned that Brookshire's is manning (supports all routes), a new one at the PETRO station on FM2959 and I35 (supports the 40 mile route), and a new one at Irene (FM1946 and FM308) which supports the 100 mile route.

So get ready, tell all your riding buddies and friends, and come join us for a great day of cycling this Saturday, May 4th, at the Waggin Trail Bike Ride.

See you there...

Good News...

This year's Waggin' Trail Bike Ride on Saturday, May 4th, 2013 will return to the start/finish point at the Outlets at Hillsboro Mall at 104 Interstate Highway 35 NE at Hillsboro, TX. 76645.

The last few years we have had to start the ride elsewhere as there were legal issues to be solved before using the Outlets at Hillsboro.  Those have been resolved and we are excited with having the start/finish at the Outlets.

Starting at the Outlets at Hillsboro provides a much safer (and easier) entrance and exit from the ride routes, plus parking is very adequate and convenient.

So, online registration is available at Active.com or you can download a PDF of the registration form and mail it in.  Everyone who registers by the 20th of April will be guaranteed a free event T-shirt.

See you on ride day - Saturday, May 4th, 2013.  Registration starts at 7:30am and the ride stagger starts at 9:00am.

OK.  All the routes are set and the final planning is being completed for Waggin' Trail Bike Ride 2012 on Saturday, May 5th, 2012.

This year as an added attraction the Hillsboro High School band will be at the start point to get us all "pumped" for the ride and will play the "Star Spangled Banner" just before start time.

Also, Mad Duck Cyclery will be on hand this year as well with their Van and this year we also have a local bike shop (Corbin's) that will be on hand for last minute tune-up/adjustments.

Remember, The 22nd is the last day of registration if you want to be guaranteed a T-shirt.  Of course registration is available, even on ride day, but to be guaranteed a T-shirt you need to register by April 22.

Also, Saturday, May 5th, registration begins at 7:30am and the ride will start at 9:00am.

Looking forward to seeing everyone...
