The 2014 Outlaw Trail Cycling Tour will be held at 8 a.m. Saturday, Oct. 11, at Old Settlers Park at the Dell Diamond.
Each year, the Round Rock Parks and Recreation Department hosts the Outlaw Trail 100 bike tour featuring 10 mile, 25 mile, 40 mile, 50 mile, 63 mile, and 100 mile loop courses on county roads through historic Williamson County.
Outlaw Trail isn’t competitive; it is an opportunity to join cyclists from across Texas for a ride across Williamson County. There are rest stops set up along the trail for cyclists to grab some snacks or a drink. Riders can ride at their own pace and rely on support from sag wagons and rest stops throughout their ride. The tour closes at 5 p.m. so cyclists should select a course they can finish within that time period.
This event is Saturday, Oct. 11, with 100 mile riders taking off at 8 a.m. with a staggered start. No rider will start after 8:30 a.m. The course will close at 5 p.m. Parking is available in the Dell Diamond parking lot (at park entrance).
The start/finish line will be located on Harrell Parkway by the Dell Diamond in front of the Old Settlers Tabernacle. Cyclists will park in the Dell Diamond parking lot and walk to the Old Settlers Tabernacle for packet pickup on event day and/or registration.
Please arrive early so you can go to the Tabernacle, get your packet, get your bike, and be ready to take off on time.
First 950 bandits receive an Outlaw Trail 100 shirt, ticket to the Cyclist Social Pasta Dinner, and other Miscellaneous items. Plus, as a rider you enjoy sag wagon support on the course, fruit and sports drinks, and a meal after the tour!
