If you’re ready for some HOT summer cycling, Brownwood is the place to be Saturday, June 22.  The Heart of Texas Cyclists are hosting a bike ride to benefit the Corinne T. Smith Animal Center.

Bike rides will begin and end at Festival Park in Brownwood.  There will be four routes with lengths of 8 miles, 25 miles, 40 miles and 63 miles.  The routes will feature some rolling hills and beautiful countryside as you pass through central Brown County.  The 63 mile route will have a significant hill climb near Brookesmith in southwest Brown County.

Entry fee for participants 16 years and younger is $15 and must register at the event.  Entry fee for parents or guardians riding the 8 mile route with your child will also be $15 and must register at the event.  Registration fee for the long routes (25, 40 and 63) is $35.  Registration will begin at 7:00 am.  The bike rides start at 8:00 am.  There will be seven rest stops along the route.

After the rides there will be hamburgers and hot dogs served and entertainment at Festival Park.
