Date: October 1, 2017

Event: Spirit of Texas Ride

Route Distances15, 35, 50 and 65 miles

About the Ride: 

Join us for a memorable 15, 35, 50 or 65 mile spin on some of the finest cycling roads anywhere. Based in scenic Wimberley, Texas, and just a short drive from Austin and San Antonio, this ride has earned a reputation for fun, outstanding scenery, excellent organization and friendly staff!

This event raises much-needed funds for the Wimberley High School band program, which has experienced crippling budget cuts at the State level. Your participation helps keep the music alive for the next generation.

If you cannot join us in the saddle for the ride, please consider a tax deductible contribution to the WHS Band Booster organization.

World Class Course

“World Class” – words not lightly chosen. It seems we are not alone in this opinion:

  • For years, Lance Armstrong’s LIVESTRONG Austin Challenge used these very roads for its event.
  • Team Garmin-Sharp (a US professional cycling team which figures prominently each year in the European racing circuit, including the Tour de France) based its development team for 2012 and 2013 at the Williams Racing Academy in Wimberley, TX. See the following article: http://cyclingillustrated.com/?s=garmin-sharp+development.

Our priority is that YOU have a WONDERFUL CYCLING EXPERIENCE !! Consequently, the course has been carefully selected by a group of local cyclists for the beauty of the routes, the quality of the roads, and the minimal traffic.

The ride course is set in the heart of the exquisite Central Texas Hill Country so the routes are hilly in general – this ride’s predecessor ride was aptly named the “Wimberley Hillacious”! Please choose your distance accordingly. While the 15-mile route is plenty picturesque, the three longer routes “up the ante” in terms of rolling hills and offer spectacular vistas along with a couple of especially challenging climbs (one of which was “affectionately” referred to as “The Hill of Death” by a 2012 participant!).

We are honored to have the opportunity to present such an outstanding cycling event. We look forward to seeing YOU in the saddle for this year’s Spirit of Texas Ride!

And, on behalf the entire Wimberley High School Spirit of Texas Band organization, thanks for your support!!

Registration: Soon

Tour de France 2011

Why does it not surprise me that Alexandre Vinokourov (“Vino” “the flying forehead”) made a big move in today’s stage of the Tour de France? He’s always been a favorite of mine, second only to Thor Hushovd the Norwegian who has been in the yellow Jersey for several days now.

With Contador so far out of the standings, the Schleck boys have a real shot at it. I think Cadel Evans, Andy S and Frank S will be on the podium. Maybe that’s just wishfulness but it could happen.
