By popular demand, we are offering a very special ride on Saturday, July 2. Our “little ride” is a short route that utilizes a loop of hills that you can take on for 1, 2 or 3 laps (20, 28 or 36 miles). The route starts and finishes in the NORTH parking lot of McKinney North High School at 8am.

The $10 fee per rider (pre-registered ONLY/NO day of event registration is offered) covers your refreshments and on road support. Participants will be limited to the first 100 riders who pay their fee. Once your fee is paid, we will send you the locator maps and route maps for the ride.

What’s Going On?

Spring Training/Summer Cycling

Last year we launched a new training program that connects our Winter Training to our Hotter ‘N Hell Hundred Training. Beginning the first weekend in April, this program features weekly outdoor ride that will help you build more strength and power. We’ll also have a rural outdoor ride and an urban outdoor ride each month so that we can learn more about gear utilization and develop our riding skills. Prices are available for a-la-carte or all inclusive.

What’s Coming Up?


Get Ready for the Hotter ‘N Hell Hundred

We’ve been a part of the HHH festivities since 1987 and it continues to be one of our favorite rides each year. It is a bike ride that is as BIG as Texas. Since we like to enjoy bike rides, we began sharing our “no pain” training plans with area cyclists. If you would like to complete the HHH without cramping or running out of energy, we can help you out. Join us for our Group Training Program (it begins in July) – or train on your own with our Train Smart guide. Get all the details here

What Ride Are You Looking For?

Melinda Marshall wanted to ride in America’s Most Beautiful Bike Ride around Lake Tahoe. Since she lives in Flower Mound, she was worried about getting ready for this very challenging ride. Read her story here: Training for Lake Tahoe.mm.15

Veronica Schaedler wanted to go for a Wine Country Tour with her daughter. The thought of 100 miles over 4 days was intimidating to her, so she called me. Here is what she had to say after the trip:

Just wanted to say thank you – because of your training I had the most wonderful vacation ever. Rode 100 miles over the 4 days – 20 – 30 per day in the prettiest countryside and loved every minute of it. I could not have done it without all your wisdom
