May 3-4, 2013 - The 2013 Bike MS: Round Up Ride. Join us and 3,000 of our cycling friends as we embark on the premier cycling event in North Texas May 4th and 5th. We encourage all ages (minimum 12 years of age) and rider levels to participate. THIS IS NOT A RACE. Average speeds are 12mph. This year day 1 will start in Frisco at Dr Pepper Ballpark at 7am sharp. Cyclists have the option of riding 48 miles to our lunch stop in Sanger and taking a free shuttle to the finish line at Texas Motor Speedway, or riding the entire 86 mile course which also finishes at TMS. There are rest stops every 10-15 miles and SAG vehicles along the route that can pick you up wherever you decide to stop. Dinner and entertainment will be provided on site. Camping or RV'ing is free, however there are no hook ups for RV's or campers, so a generator would be needed for amenities. We also provide free shuttles to many area hotels that run continuously throughout the day. Free breakfast starts off day 2 and then a lap around the actual speedway sends riders out into the beautiful communities of North Texas. Again cyclists have the option to ride 30 miles to lunch and take a free shuttle to the finish line which circles back to Texas Motor Speedway. The full route for the second day is 55 miles and ends back at TMS. Dinner is again provided free to all participants. This is a fundraising event with a $300 minimum that goes directly to helping the lives of those living with MS. Last year we were able to raise $2 million that went to research, programs and services for our clients. We hope you'll chose to join our fight to end Multiple Sclerosis.

Waggin Trial Bike Ride 2013, Saturday, May 4th, 2013. Start: 9:00am, May 4th, 303 Coke St., Suite 100, Hillsboro, TX 76645 Registration: online registration at Active.com and starting at 7:30am on Saturday, May 4th, 2013. Two of Hill County's finest community oriented organizations, Hill County Paw Pals and Hillsboro Police Department Community Outreach Programs, have joined together again to launch their sixth annual "Waggin' Trail Bike Ride" on Saturday, May 4th, 2013. The event is planned with five routes to meet the needs of avid cyclists to the casual rider which include 100, 68, 40, 26, and 10 mile routes. Registration begins at 7:30am with staggered starts beginning at 9:00am at 303 Coke St., Suite 100 in Hillsboro, Texas. Hillsboro is conveniently located 56 miles south of Dallas/Worth or 32 miles north of Waco on I-35. The planned routes of Waggin' Trail Bike Ride offer cyclists a unique tour of Central Texas. Hill County is 986 square miles of rural area that is joined together with miles and miles of splendid paved farm-to-market roads. With a combined population of only 33,000, Hill County offers open spaces. On many areas of the bike ride, one can see for miles around—the splendid beauty of open land—flowing creeks, pastures with cattle and horses grazing, farmers' cultivated fields, and proud, rural communities. The varied routes all explore the back roads of Hill County and go through communities that were established during the 1850's when Hill County was created and named after Dr. George W. Hill, a settler who served as a congressman and Secretary of War for the Republic of Texas. Web Page - Reviews -

We have 4 routes to choose from, 20, 40, 60 and 80 miles. Each will allow you to enjoy the beauty of the top of Texas hill country. You will also be riding through the historical Norse community. The Norwegian settlement began here in 1854, the same year the county was founded, and was led by Ole Canuteson and included Cleng Peerson, "The Father of Norwegian Immigration to America." Thousands of Norwegian immigrants, some coming directly from Norway and others from northern states, would eventually settle between Clifton and Cranfills Gap by century's end. The Norwegian influence in the area is still very evident today, including Our Saviors Lutheran Church, site of our first rest stop, and St. Olaf Kirke, or as it is better-known, The Old Rock Church. - Web Page - Online Register - Reviews - See the routes on Map my Ride: 20 - 40 - 60 - 80 miles
