Due to construction scheduled to begin at the end of January on Hwy 71 we will not be able to offer routes thru Bastrop or Buescher State Parks. We have 3 great routes for cyclists to enjoy 24, 40 and 70 miles with start and finish at Vernon L. Richards Riverbend Park located at 107 Hwy 71W, Smithville, Texas. These routes take cyclists out into the rolling hills to traverse the country roads of Bastrop, Lee and Fayette counties. If you rode the 2012 Pedal, these are the same routes we offered after the wildfires destroyed the parks. These routes offer the challenge every cyclist enjoys. Still holding strong is the Pedal seasoned SAG team, friendly volunteers, and homemade cookies at the Serbine rest stop! Thank you for your continued support of the Pedal event and the Family Crisis Center.
Pedal Thru The Pines is an on the road cycling event benefiting the Family Crisis Center. Participating cyclists may choose from routes of 24 miles, 40 miles, or 70 miles. The event takes place each year in early March. The Pedal ride is a recommended training ride for the BP MS150. All event proceeds support the programs and services offered by the agency. The event is organized and directed by the agency with support from board members, volunteers, and community partners who volunteer their time, provide donations, and serve as event sponsors.
