This ride is not close by but if you're looking for a reason to have a mini vacation, this would be it. Ride is 30 miles one way. Start in Brownsville and ride to South Padre Island. Causeway is closed just for the riders after everyone regroups in Port Isabel. Climb the highest peak in the Valley....the Point Isabella Causeway!
I did the ride last year for first time and it was lots of fun. Almost 2000 riders from the U.S. and Mexico did the ride.
