Yes, the Pico De Gallo Century Ride is on for 2013!

Wow!  I can not believe this is our 4th year already.  We have been getting the same two questions over and over again:

  • Is the Pico De Gallo 100 taking place this year?  The answer is YES!
  • When is the Pico De Gallo 100 ride?  December 21st, 2013

So mark your calendars and start training for one fun and challenging ride with a couple of hundred of your cycling friends!

 

Pico de Gallo 100 Century Ride 2012

Well Folks, it’s that time of year again when we get together to enjoy the last century ride of the year in Texas with our cycling friends. This little ride has started to grow each year and we have to grow along with it. As much as I hate it, growth comes with more expenses. First and foremost we want to keep this a FREE ride and we are happy to announce that after much deliberation, we have managed to keep it a FREE ride to you again this year. This is our annual gift to you, our cycling community. We do want to share that our biggest expense will be providing event insurance, pins, custom bibs, road signs, and all the other wonderful little details that will make this ride better than last year. To offset our expenses and help make this a self sustained ride, please consider purchasing 1 of 50 PdG100 T-Shirts ($20), 1 of 23 Cycling Jerseys ($50), or Pico de Gallo 100 Merchandise available from our annual sponsor, LovelyCreations.com. We are very grateful for all the wonderful people that have offered to volunteer. Please thank them when you see them. I hope you enjoy your time on the route this year and have a safe and wonderful time with your friends.

Please register for the ride so we can order plenty of finisher pins for all our riders. These are provided FREE to you as well, but remember, you only get the pin if you complete the full 100 miles. It is based on the honor system, but there will also be a check point …somewhere along this year’s route ;-)
