Take advantage of early-bird registration discounts, then start training for Mayor Betsy Price’s Gear Up to End Hunger challenge bike ride on Oct. 6 at Rockwood Park.
Riders who finish the course within 15 percent of the mayor’s time will earn bragging rights and a high-performance jersey. Proceeds from the race benefit the Tarrant Area Food Bank.
Through Aug. 6, early registration for the 30-, 10- and 2-mile rides is $25. Registration for ages 5-12 is $10.
The 100K begins at Rockwood Park and loops up to the Texas Motor Speedway before heading back to the park. After the ride, celebrate with free food, beverages and kids’ activities.
Mayor Price is serving as lead rider and honorary chair of the ride. Like so many Fort Worth residents, she can’t stand the thought of any child or family going hungry. “Let’s ride to help families not just survive, but thrive,” Price said.
