15th Annual LIVESTRONG ride

**No additional fundraising requirement this year. Entry fee only.**

This year the LiveStrong organization celebrates its 15th anniversary, the Team LIVESTRONG Challenge takes great pride in its history of cycling events. What started as a small ride called the Race for the Roses that Lance Armstrong began in 1997 has blossomed into a premiere fundraising event for LIVESTRONG.

We hope you will join us as we aim to make this year's event a monumental cycling experience for LIVESTRONG. Leaving from the north side of Palmer Events Center on Riverside Drive in downtown Austin, our goal is to have over 4,000 cyclists raise $2 million to support LIVESTRONG programs and services. Cyclists can choose from distances ranging from 20 to 100 miles, based on their experience and fitness level.

You MUST register for this event. To join the Jack and Adams crew (group we ride Steiner Ranch Sundays with) follow this link:

    it was awesome, and quire an emotional experience. Really I was not ready for the 100 mile ride, since my training has only taken my up to 70 miles and 40 miles is my norm. all that said the livestrong is a ride not and a awesome one! i could have done without the wind and WOW I need to increase my hill training as well.
    but now I've done my first 100 and excited about more

    Looks like it is best to find a location to meet at... a school maybe.... then ride to the event from there.
    Anyone have any ideas? Parking is limited

    October 17, 2012

    • Wes D.

      I think a few of us have decided on Performance Bike Shop. Meeting there at 5:30am

      October 18, 2012

    • Wes D.

      That will make it 85 miles total when its all said and done

      October 18, 2012

  • thomas a.

    Yep, Austin High or under MoPac across the ped bridge.

  • Richard S.

    How come the invite says 7 PM. I thought the ride web site said 7:30 to meet at the starting line. It is a bit confusing, but it is Sunday morning, right?

    Great to see so many participating this year! Let's hear ideas for meeting before hand or hanging while we wait for our riders to come in. I'm sure J&A will have a tent but we can certainly group somewhere in common to launch if the group wants to.
