Sounds like a quaint little ride. Should be fun.
"good morning - our Tour de Forts Bike Ride is only in its 3rd year and we are still small. I expect 40-50 cyclists. each day I receive 3-4 more registrations, so, for me, it is rather 'scary' not knowing how many people to plan on feeding.
We are asking that the cyclists be around the courthouse between 7:30 and 7:45 a.m. with the Century Riders lining up first -- right behind the Sheriff's Patrol. Then the others in order of distance will follow. We actually have some who are planning just 10 miles -- first time. But, it is good they are coming out!! Last year, we had a 14 year old and his father who completed the Century Ride!! That was great!!
We have 10 stations set up approximately every 10 miles, 4-5 SAG Wagons, police escort the entire trip and medical personnel on hand. We have good reviews and lots of hits on the Bike Texas web-site. It will just take time to grow. I do know that we do have lots of fun though!!"
