October 22, 2011 – Pedal 2 Paris – The Pedal 2 Paris offers an out-and-back route that travels 75 miles from Blue Ridge TX to Paris TX.
According to the official website:
To make sure that we really take good care of our cyclists, we are limiting the field to the first 200 riders who register. We will also have a 12 hour time limit on the route – with the route open from 7am until 7pm on October 22, 2011.
IF the ride sounds inviting but the distance is too much, please remember that we are using an “out and back” route.
This allows us to keep our support concentrated in a smaller area while providing you with a flexible route distance (example 50 out and 50 back = 100 miles). Here are some of the many ways that you can ride the Pedal 2 Paris:
ROUND TRIP – Ride from Blue Ridge to Paris and back in 1 day for 150 miles
ONE WAY TICKET – Ride to Paris for 75 miles. Have your family and/or friends meet you there. Enjoy the Fall Festival is Paris and spend the night before comeing home on Sunday.
PICK YOUR TRIP – Ride to any break point along the route, then turn around and ride back. You may not see Paris, but you will have a fun ride doing the distance you like.”
The beneficiary for the Pedal 2 Paris is PACA – a group of area cyclists Pedaling Against Child Abuse.
Registration fee includes routes and support, lunch in Paris (optional), commemorative t-shirt and medal.
