Make a difference! Whether this is your first or fiftieth ride – you can celebrate cancer survivors in your community. Choose from a 20, 40, 70 or 100 mile ride through the scenic, bluebonnet covered, Brazos Valley raising support for CHI St. Joseph Health cancer services. 

The 70 and 100 mile routes connect riders to the rolling hills of the La Bahia Scenic Highway (FM 390) listed as one of the top wildflower roads in Texas!

For an ultimate cycling adventure, join co-chair Billy Rice as he and fellow bikepackers race from the Gran Fondo starting line through two National Forests in east Texas and return on a 500 mile "Gran Gravel" trek! This single stage, self-supported race begins on Friday, March 24th.

SUPPORT A GREAT CAUSE:

Registrants have the option to support our efforts for cancer services at CHI St. Joseph Health through personal fundraising. Individual fundraisers are charged $35 for their race registration and agree to raise a minimum of $150. Any amount not collected through online donations by midnight on Saturday, March 25 will be applied to the fundraiser's credit card used when registering. You will be provided instructions for setting up a personal fundraising page to dedicate your ride to someone you know who has battled cancer. We will also provide you tips on sharing your story through email and social media to encourage friends and family to help you reach your fundraising goal!

Registrants may also opt to not fundraise and simply register at a higher single fee.

TEAMS:

We love to see teams sign up and ride together!

Teams may also fundraise as well. Teams have a suggested minimum fundraising goal of $500. While fundraising is not required of teams, we encourage teams to dedicate their ride to a cancer survivor and support this great cause.
