The NEW Tour Dallas
April 4, 2015
More choices. More freedom. More wheel fun!
On April 4, 2015, we are inviting ALL Dallas area cyclists to join us and tour Dallas by bicycle. Pick your start location and your destination, then determine the best route to use to get there. Take the money you would usually pay for a registration fee and use it to stop for drinks, snacks or a meal. The options are endless:
Start downtown, meander about on the route you like best (Trinity Trails? Fair Park?), stop somewhere for a meal and finish the ride. You can ride from the suburbs down to Uptown, grab a abite and bike back. etc etc
Now, before you tell me I am crazy, Michael "The Two Wheeled" Carr started a ride just like this in the mid 80's to promote the original Dallas Bike Plan. Called the "Super Bowl Sunday Ride", it is still going on today. I just finished a ride with a small group of friends that was part of that "event"
So, here is the plan. I am GIVING Tour Dallas to the cyclists. From this day forward, it is YOUR ride. Make it the distance you like, on the route that you like, eat and drink what you like. The perfect ride to celebrate American Freedom.
What next? As we move forward, we will be updating this website with route options, food options and invitations to join in on the fun. We'll also have similar information on the Tour Dallas Facebook page.
Our Supporting Bike Shops have already stated that they plan to select a route and have groups starting from their shops. Check with them for the details.
Mark your calendar and join me. Let's Tour Dallas on April 4, 2015.
We'll have some wheel fun!!!
