Put it on your calendar today – Saturday, July 27th and Sunday, July 28th, 2019: this year’s edition of one of Texas’ premiere summer rides. This year registration will include a BBQ lunch for all Saturday ride registrants. And we’re bringing back the Steamboat Mountain Challenge Time Trial on Sunday along with the awards presentation and light brunch at Main Street Station in Buffalo Gap.
As you know, we survey what the participants in the Tour have to say every year, and we listen. Several have asked for a few more miles for the middle distance route, so we’re introducing a new middle distance ride: 31.6 miles, or 50K. It adds about 4 miles to the beautiful climb through Lemons Gap, then loops around Griffith Lake and rejoins the route. Here are the links to the large route maps:

Thanks again to Steamboat Cycling Club member Dwayne Dove for shooting, editing and publishing this aerial video of the Challenge, a pretty tough hill climb that takes place on Sunday after the Tour de Gap. Starting at Main Street Station on the south side of Buffalo Gap, the course goes up Belle Plains Road before making a couple of turns to head up the north side of Steamboat Mountain. Check it out! And if you have any needs for someone to produce high quality aerial video, email Dwayne Dove!
