Turn-by-Turn Directions Posted

For those riders for whom a map is just not enough information, we’ve posted comprehensive turn-by-turn directions for Day 1, the Century Route and Day 2. It may be handy to print and carry along during the ride, but we really don’t recommend you follow along with all 93 turns while riding!


Attention Century Route Riders

If you have signed up to ride the 100-mile River Road Century Route, please remember that the route closes at 2:30 p.m. Saturday!

Carbo Load at The Expo

Be sure to help us kick our ride weekend off in style Friday, Oct. 8 at our Expo, held at the Alamodome.

Doors will be open 4-9 p.m. The Expo will feature a $10 pasta dinner, a team jersey fashion show, health and wellness vendors, event sponsors, the latest cycling products sold by bike shops, and our final packet pick-up. You can also submit any pledges, pick up your ride packet and T-shirt, and meet with your Bike MS: Champion. Parking at the Alamodome is $5.

Sign up for Ride Updates on Your Mobile Phone

Sign up today to receive updates on your mobile phone via text updates. This service was particularly useful last year when flash floods disrupted the ride and we were forced to cancel Day 2  (but that is NOT going to happen this year, we all know that).

You will only receive text ride updates during the weekend of the ride and we will not overuse the service or sell or distribute your number to anyone else.  Signing up is simple: Using your mobile phone, text “RIDER,” “VOLUNTEER” or “CAPTAIN” to 777111.  Standard text messaging rates apply.
