Sorry for the confusion, folks, but the Republic of Texas Bike Rally is this weekend, and our restaurant stops have highly recommended we not hold our Taste of Downtown II Tour rain date at the same time. So instead, we are pushing the ride to Wednesday, June 16. That was originally the night of the Pampered Pedal II which we’ll be rescheduling for a future date. We apologize for the confusion but believe this will yield a better ride experience for everyone.
