July is where we honor and celebrate the greatest bicycle race of all, the Tour de France (TdF). The TdF begins this year on the same day, July 4th, with the individual Time Trial.
GoPro will be taping the event and be on hand to demonstrate and answer questions about their products.
We frequently have well over 200 cyclists that participate in the July COM.
Several charities will be participating (donations gladly accepted) and we often have local politicians who ride with us, that have included Fort Worth Mayor Betsy Price and Sheri Capehart from the Arlington City Council.
Here is the schedule of events:
• 0645 – Doors Open

This ride is ideal for bringing family and friends who may want to ride just a few miles to see what it is all about. The short 12 mile route stays in the neighborhood with very light traffic.
