The Goatneck Bike Ride is a rolling hill course which averages around 35 feet per mile of climbing. The roads are well maintained countryroads with little traffic. The prevailing winds during this time of year are from the southwest, which provides a tail wind for the last portion of the ride coming into the finish! We provide rest stops every 8-9 miles on all courses.
Last year we had close to 2,500 riders. We provide showers at the finish in the Cleburne High School basketball locker rooms, located in the gym registration area.
In an effort to keep our ride prices down and provide as low a cost ride as poosible, we are not able to provide a meal afterwards. All money aised goes to various Johnson COunty charities. Last year we were able to donate over $30,000 to local charities becuase of the participation of the riders.
Approved bicycle helmets are required. We strongly urge participants to carry a water bottle during the race. Children under 14 must be accompanied by an adult. No refunds. Ride will be held rain or shine.
