About This Activity

Back in 1990 we started inviting friends to join us for a bike ride on January 1 so that we could get a healthy start on the new year. After the ride, which varied in length due to weather conditions, we always sat down for some black-eyed peas and cornbread.

We opened up the invitations to include the local cycling community in 2000 and began what has become a local cycling tradition, called the Merry Fitness/Happy New Rear Ride.

Since 2007 we have been launching this ride out of the Community Center in Blue Ridge TX. This year we have 3 routes, offering distances of 15, 28 and 40 miles. The support team has grown and the weather still varies, but the ride still ends with some black-eyed peas and cornbread.
