Event attracts out-of-towners
As cyclists at the Tour de France finish their race, cyclists from all over Texas will compete in Tour de Goatneck.
The 27th annual Goatneck Bike Ride begins at 6 a.m. Saturday with registration at Cleburne High School. The race benefits local nonprofits such as the Children’s Advocacy Center, Family Crisis Center, East Cleburne Community Center and more.
“Last year we gave away $27,000 in donations to many local charities,” said Jennifer Jones, one of the rider’s organizers. “We don’t really set a goal but every year the amount…

TERRIL, Ia. — Y’all may not believe this, but I’m willing to bet that the mayor of Fort Worth, Texas, puts most RAGBRAI riders to shame in terms of pace and fitness.
Mayor Betsy Price, 64, downplayed her Lone Star grit Monday as I huffed and puffed behind her and her carbon-framed Cervélo bike into Terril early in the second leg of the Register’s Annual Great Bicycle Ride Across Iowa.
“It just happens to feel really good this morning,” she claimed.
She also runs half-marathons.
And what about Monday’s heat index that was predicted to…
Why join your ride?
Have you ever cycled a course raced by Cale Yarborough and A.J Foyt? Miles 4 Marce is truly a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity. Held at the Texas World Speedway, it is the best Texas cycling venue for 2014! Perfect for first timers, experienced riders, and those training for longer rides like the Hotter N Hell. No cars, traffic, construction, or stop signs on the three mile loop keeps you rolling at top speeds, but always close to restrooms, food, and great bike support.
How long has your ride been around?
This is the inaugural year for Miles 4 Marce, and likely the last time this venue will…

75+ Austin lady cyclists of all ages joined thousands around the world to promote solidarity and the love of long distance riding. With freshly pumped tires and the route mapped, together we pushed off from Cycleast Bike shop to embark on a central Texas spin. Our halfway point/waterstop was full of healthy fuels to keep us on the path to completion. Women of all ages pushed hard and finished the…

A bicyclist from China who was visiting relatives was killed on Friday after being struck by a pickup truck in Plano, police reported Tuesday.
Plano police responded to the intersection of Alma Drive and West Spring Creek Parkway at about 4:45 p.m. Friday. Investigators said a pickup traveling southbound attempted to…
We’ve had a real break so far this summer. It wasn’t until last week that we had our first 100 degree (38C) days of the season. We had enough rain in June that the grass in my yard is uniformly green.
These conditions are markedly different from the summers we’ve had around here in recent years. The worst was the summer of 2011, when we hit 100 nearly every day for three months straight.
The problem is, the severe drought conditions that began that year have never abated. We’re still in extreme to exceptional drought conditions. But riding has been great.
We decided to add some miles to our usual B ride, and go south to 5-Mile Dam. That’s a county park on the north edge of San Marcos, about 28 miles south of Austin. We knew the heat would be a…
I was unable to get humidity relief via the swimming method this morning because the pool is getting a shock treatment. It takes about a day for the pool to get over being shocked.
To get myself some outdoor wind chilling I used the rolling my wheels method.
That’s bike wheels, not motorized vehicle wheels with windows down and A/C at full blast.
The wind is cooling whilst pedaling, til one stops for a…

Thanks to Karen and Klayton for organizing, and for everyone who came out last night. We had a good time at my final Monday Social Ride and the picnic afterwards.

Runners, walkers and bicyclists will soon have the option to go from the Gulf Terrace Hike and Bike trail behind West Brook High School onto a new trail linking Major Drive to Dowlen Road along Folsom Drive’s south side.
The trail isn’t a straight line between the two thoroughfares. Folsom runs 1.3 miles between Dowlen and Major.
Beaumont council members on Tuesday approved construction for the new 2.44 miles trail, which will curve around…
