Pico de Gallo Century Bike Ride

Dear Cycling Community,

With a heavy heart, and after many hours and an endless series of conversations, we have decided to effectively cancel the 2022 RGV Pico De Gallo 100 Bicycle ride. We’ve had multiple setbacks, delays, and other issues in reinstating the organization and getting back to where we were before Covid-19. Without important key components in place, it would be very challenging to deliver a safe and quality ride you’ve come to expect from our small organization. With only a few weeks left, we’ve decided to call it.

In addition, we’ve also come to another more difficult decision and that is that we will not be hosting any Pico de Gallo 100 bike rides in the future. Any of the Pico De Gallo 100 Bicycle ride and groups and related entities are being dismantled in their entirety. We’ve had a great 10 year run with this ride exceeding our expectations. It started with a small group, with 32 people in 2009 and quickly multiplying throughout the years to more than 10X-ing the number of attendees in 2019 celebrating our 10th year anniversary.

We’re very proud of what this RGV community ride became and for being able to keep it FREE every year for our cycling community. We want to thank the city of Weslaco for hosting us for many years, to our city and county law enforcement agencies, our financial and in-kind sponsors, donors, participants, supporters, and our hard-working volunteers each year. We are eternally grateful, and we know we couldn’t have had the success we experienced without you.

It is the end of an era.

With much love to our cycling community,

Thank you so much for all you have done in the past. You all have created a lasting Valley legacy and a fountain of memories anyone who participated in these events will be able to bathe in for the rest of their lives. Though I am saddened by this announcement, I am proud to be able to say “I was there. I saw it…and it was oh so real.”

Enrique y Eudy Gracias por todo el tiempo que le pusieron a la comunidad del ciclismo 🚴🏽‍♀️, Roger y yo en lo personal nos encantó conocer tan grandes personas como ustedes, Ciclistas somos y en el camino nos encontramos 😘

The first ride was a metric century (and my first metric) The treat afterwards was a fabulous meal at Eudy Carrillo home. I was able to participate in in the 10th anniversary ride with my cousin Richard Cisneros who stated he understood why I liked the Valley and the culture so. What the ride enabled me as a short time resident was to acquire lasting friendships with people who were patient with me in my ability to ride on a bike - some short and long distances. Some of the friendships that I made would not have been [possible if not for cycling community, Bicycle World RGV Teammcallencycling Member Pico de Gallo, SB250. They were welcome challenges. And how about that jersey❗🐓

Thank you for all that you have done for our cycling community. ❤️

When we think back to the very first one with a handful of people who wanted to ride that final century before year end and what it became. You have so much to be proud of and we will always remember the pico de Gallo and all the fond memories of the ride. God Speed to all of you and thank you for the many years it was held. We know you will still be involved in other events and look forward to seeing you!

Thanks so much for so much you guys did for our cycling community. Will really miss it!!

Eudy and Enrique We love you. Thank you for all you did for the cycling community. I know you both personally and you are both wonderful people. Thank you for all your hard work and take care.

Ya manden informes, nada más antojan 😂

Qué es el Pico de Gallo 100? Es la manera más divertida de rodar con amigos y otros ciclistas 100 millas.

Esto será el 3 de diciembre, ya estamos en los últimos detalles, estén pendientes.
