June 7, 2014 - 18th Annual Mesquite Rotary Bike Ride, presented by Panera Bread This year, the charity fundraiser will start at West Mesquite High School (near Military Parkway and I-635 L.B.J. Freeway) at 8:00 a.m. on Saturday, June 7, 2014. Cyclists will have the choice of 33K, 65K, or 100K courses. In addition to the controlled ride, those registering will get breakfast food from Panera Bread of Mesquite and Whataburger of Mesquite, a catered lunch from Panera Bread Cafes of Mesquite, Park Lane Dallas, and Richardson, Buffalo Wild Wings of Mesquite and more, and a goody bag of gifts from area businesses. The first 1,500 to register will also receive a Dry Fit Performance event t-shirt. Early registration until ride day costs only $30.00 for adults and $20.00 for kids age 14 and under. Ride day registration will be just $35.00 for adults and $25.00 for kids. On site registration will begin at 6:00 that morning. Information will be available at area bike shops. For more details, you can send an email to MesquiteRotaryBikeRide@gmail.com, or call 972-284-9411.
Also, detailed information and links to online preregistration are found at www.mesquiterotarybikeride.com. As you can see, the presenting sponsor and the location are different this year. We had a scheduling conflict at our usual starting/ending point of Mesquite Rodeo Convention Center, so this year we will be a few blocks away, at West Mesquite High School. The exit from the freeway will still be the same as usual, and riders will be able to find it easily due to signs we will have out, and the fact that the school is located at the base of the very visible Mesquite Communications Tower, and adjacent to Mesquite Memorial Stadium.- Reviews - Photos_2010 - Photos_2011 - Photos_2012 - Photos_2013 -
