About the Ride: The Sweatin’ Burnt Orange Bike Tour, now in its tenth year, is the annual fundraiser for The University of Texas at Austin Cycling Club. Each year, Texas alumni and club supporters ride through the beautiful hill country around Blanco, Texas.
The event hosts five fully supported route lengths between 10 and 75 miles. Rest stops and SAG vehicles ensure a safe, comfortable ride through the back country. At the end of the ride, participants are treated to real Texas BBQ on the square. One complimentary T-shirt is included in the registration fee.
This event is an incredible Texas riding experience that’ll leave you Sweatin’ Burnt Orange!
