Here at BikeTown we couldn’t agree more. We love riding our bikes and want to help as many people as we can love riding their bikes, too.

Thanks for coming out and riding, everyone! There will be one more time trial this season. The October one will be on Thursday, October 6. Since it will be getting dark earlier, we will move the time up by 30 minutes this next time. So, sign up will be at 5:30 pm and the first rider will take off at 6:00. Hope to see you there!

Road Time Trial Tonight

It's the first Thursday of September which means it's time for the road time trial! Come join us at Mueller's on FM 18. Sign up will begin at 6:00 pm and the first rider will take off at 6:30 on the 10 mile loop. Please bring a non-perishable food item as your entry fee. This will be donated to the Food Bank. We finally have a forecast that doesn't give us a high in the triple digits, so come out and enjoy riding in the "cooler" weather.
