Tres Burritos Ride

Date: Saturday, July 16, 2011

Event: Tres Burritos Ride — Road

Route Distances:

  • Climb the hills – 42-mile ride in the Texas heat
  • Go the distance – 71 mile ride is for those who like to go the distance
  • Ride the Town – This downtown pedal is the perfect way to spend a summer morning with family and friends

About the Ride: The Tres Burritos Ride is actually three unique rides, each leaving from a different Bicycle Sport Shop location. One is hilly, one is long, and one is an easy family pedal. But all are loads of fun, raise money for a great cause, and end with cold drinks and hot burritos.

Proceeds from the Bicycle Sport Shop Tres Burritos Ride will go directly toward getting more Austin kids on bikes more often through Boltage, a program that tracks the number of times students ride their bikes to school and rewards them for their participation. In partnership with Trek and the City of Austin’s Safe Routes to School program, Bicycle Sport Shop will use the money raised from the ride to bring Boltage to at least one more Austin-area school by the end of 2012. Bicycle Sport Shop and its partners have already launched Boltage at Brentwood Elementary, Bryker Woods Elementary and Martin Middle School in Austin, and Patsy Sommer Elementary in Round Rock.

Climb the hills – If you’re looking for a hilly, 42-mile ride in the Texas heat, this is the punishment you’ve been looking for. Add speed to a cocktail of summer heat and long climbs, and you just may win the honor of getting your name on the coveted King of the Mountain trophy. We’ll celebrate your strong finish (and for coming out to raise money to get more Austin kids on bikes more often) with burritos, Real Ale and non-alcoholic drinks.

Go the Distance – This ride is for those who like to go the distance. It’s a metric century plus, with a whopping total of 71 miles. The course is relatively flat, but long, hot and all for a good cause. Turn around points will be available if you can’t stand the heat. We’ll celebrate your strong finish (and for coming out to raise money to get more Austin kids on bikes more often) with burritos, Real Ale and non-alcoholic drinks.

Ride the Town – This downtown pedal is the perfect way to spend a summer morning with family and friends and help us raise money to get more kids on bikes more often. Bring a chariot for the little ones, or pedal side-by-side to the Capitol. We’ll celebrate at the finish line with Burritos, Real Ale and non-alcoholic beverages.
