About This Activity

All courses present a challenging adventure ride on small paved and gravel roads through the piney woods of northeast Texas.  Few cars, beautiful scenery, historic sites.  65, 105 or 205 miles of unadulterated fun, hosted with great food and music by El Camino and the Palestine Chamber of Commerce.  If friends want to do a shorter ride while you are on course, they can register for a sweet little 25 mile loop anytime after 8:00 a.m. on Saturday 9/24.
