More fun. More good. Hopefully drier.

The 7th annual Bike Out Hunger – Texas is scheduled for May 16-21, 2016. We’ll continue to raise awareness, money and involvement in ending the cycle of hunger as we ride six days and up to 486 miles across Texas From Fredericksburg to Dallas. May 16 is a travel day to Fredericksburg with a 40-mile afternoon warm-up ride.

As always, we take good care of you with hotels, SAG, breakfasts, snacks, suppers and transportation from Dallas to Fredericksburg and to nightly suppers which are all included in the fee. Full-week and single-day riders are all welcome as we ride well and do good. Full-week riders also get a 2016 Bike Out Hunger jersey included in the fee…so, probably want to ride the whole week.

Ride well. Ride a lot. Do great good.

Bike Out Hunger – Texas 2016 is a fully supported ride with SAG, during ride snacks and stretch points, suppers and for those signing on for the full week you also get hotel nights and breakfasts.

We cyclists come together to enjoy our passion of riding and our desire to improve the lives of those in our communities. We ride to raise money and awareness of the hunger needs in our communities. On average, one out of four Texas children are food insecure. That’s actually unacceptable. Your efforts on this ride will help lower those rates on a very real and local level.

There are three ride groups for you to choose your daily pace. For the 100+ mile days, there is a shorter option. And, with SAG always nearby, if you need to stop, you can call it a day…we won’t judge. Well, we won’t judge for long…

Riding with a fun and encouraging group is easier than you think. Come join and find out.

Live in Austin or Waco or San Antonio? We usually have riders from these areas that may be able to help get you back home after the ride on Saturday. If there’s a large group, we can add this to the motor coach expense.
