NCAA Final Four? No problem here. Their first activity downtown begins at 12 noon. You can even ride with us and then head to the concert.
More FUN at the Finish Line Celebration
Who's first? Who cares! This is a TOUR – not a race. No need to get in a hurry and raise the stress levels or miss out on the fun along the way. Plus, with the number of cyclists in our event and the hazards of the roadway, going too fast can cause injury to you and others around you. So relax and enjoy the ride. Then when you get to the Finish Line Celebration, enjoy the fresh, HOT pizza baked on site by Pizza Patron, a cold bottle of Propel water and enjoy the strolling magicians, BMX Stunt Team and a day with family and friends.
Why Tour Dallas?
Tour Dallas gives you the chance to ride downtown and within some of the scenic areas of the city with more than 200 police officers out there directing traffic on our routes. We spend $52,000 for this kind of route support so that you can enjoy the ride!
Come join our movement!
Get out that fat tired bike, cruiser , mountain bike or road bike. Enjoy a leisurely ride and the scenic beauty of Dallas in the spring. Blooming flowers, singing birds, laughing children and a parade of bicycles all along the way. You’ll defeat inactivity as you ride for victory. Do it right, and you’ll have a smile on your face all day long.
Which route is right for you?
Construction in the downtown area has meant several changes to our routes. Each one is a little shorter, but they still go through the heart of the city. We'll have 229 Dallas Police Officers along the route, providing the chance for you to enjoy the ride with minimal stops. We offer a short 6 mile route in and around downtown Dallas for families and new cyclists who want to get an easy ride with a lot of fun. Our 17 mile route includes the Swiss Avenue Historic District, Lakewood, the M streets, Turtle Creek and more, while the 27 mile route includes all that PLUS a lap around White Rock Lake. All routes will be staged on Young Street in front of City Hall, rolling out at 8:00AM.
What about after the ride?
We'll have a Finish Line Celebration on City Hall Plaza, so stick around and check out the fun. We'll have Hot, Fresh Pizza from Pizza Patron, a BMX bike team doing ledge tricks, face painters, jugglers and clowns, Clif Bars, Propel water, information about area rides and more. Make sure to wear your ride number, as the post ride party is open only to our participants and their family members/friends.
