Look for “pedaling the prairie 2013.”
Pedaling the Prairie is a non-competitive bike ride held annually around the rice fields and prairie between Bellville and Katy, Texas. This is a BPMS150 Recommended Ride. All proceeds benefit the athletic department of Faith West Academy.
This year’s ride is on Saturday, February 9, 2013. We will start from the Waller County Fairgrounds, 22000 Fairground Road, Hempstead, Texas 77445 (290 and FM 359).
Registration begins at 7:00 a.m. and the ride begins at 9:00 a.m. Enjoy coffee from Community Coffee, oatmeal from Starbucks (Fry Rd @ Park Row), and breakfast tacos before the ride. Then, ride in comfort knowing that there will be breakpoints every 10 – 15 miles. Refreshments will be provided at all breakpoints to keep you hydrated and energized. Your safety and well-being is our major concern, as we will have well planned routes, police escorts through major intersections, and mechanical and medical support at the rest stops. SAG vehicles and Ride Marshall support also will be included.
The ride travels along several courses ranging from a 24-mile beginner ride to a 71-mile endurance ride. The various routes take you around the Monaville, Pattison, and Bellville areas. You can expect to experience the prairie, rolling meadows, rural flatlands, and some hills close to Bellville.
When you get back to the Fairgrounds after your ride, you can enjoy a hamburger before heading home.
