Winter Tour 2022


It's almost time for the 13th Annual Violet Crown Winter Tour! This year we will tackle 11 days of bike rides together. Who's going to ride all of them? Take a few days off work if possible, gather up your winter kit, and join the fun!

Please park your bike/gather on the Balcones Dr (west) side of the building. If you drive to the ride, please park your vehicle around the corner at Highland Park Elementary.

Weekend rides will be The Bagel Ride on Saturdays at 8:30 am and the Mellow Johnny's ride on Sundays with an 8:15 am rollout. Details about these two rides at
