About the event:
LifeCycle is a community-friendly bike tour for cyclists of every age and skill-level. We offer a challenging event for the Lycra-loving, hard-core cyclists, and also a fun and non-intimidating event for leisure cyclists and families. Five routes are offered with beautiful country scenery including Caddo and Desoto Parish and dipping into portions of East Texas. Event includes pre-ride breakfast-snacks, fully-stocked rest stops, lunch, Kids’ Fun Area, and a sponsor expo. Caddo, Desoto, and Panola Sheriffs will provide traffic relief on the courses along with SAG support for all routes.
Online registration is January 1st – June 1st. The first 400 registrants will receive a premium SWAG bag, and an event t-shirt, so get registered early! All registrants will receive a door prize ticket, and access to all after-ride activities. A finish-line medal will be given to all youth cyclists (12 and younger). Registration is non-refundable (no exceptions), but is transferrable. Registration for children 0-2 are FREE, and children ages 3-12 is $10.00.
