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...

Warren

Hill County Paw Pals and Hillsboro Police Department Community Outreach Programs successfully concluded their joint fund raiser—“3rd Annual Waggin’ Trails Bike Ride 2010”. Designed routes of 10, 26, 40, 54, and 67 miles were provided to challenge cyclists of all levels. The success of this event stemmed from a supporting community, volunteers, sponsors and the outstanding professional support by our area Emergency Response Agencies—Bynum Volunteer Fire Department, Itasca Volunteer Fire Department and Hillsboro Community Emergency Response (CERT). Hill County Sheriff Jeff Lyon also represented the Hill County Sheriff Office in the command communications center. In addition to Hillsboro Police Department, Covington, Itasca and Whitney police departments assisted with traffic control.

We are blessed to have a community willing to support two important causes: Paw Pals with their goal of facilitating the installation of a proactive county animal program to include an animal shelter and Hillsboro Police Department’s Outreach Programs which is organized to reduce crime by increasing community involvement.
