Annual Freedom Cycle Fest

Memorial Day Ride with Friends

Freedom Cycle Fest

May 29, 2023
Slow Rise on the Brazos
8 AM – Ride to West – about 50 miles
Group ride to celebrate Memorial Day, an American holiday, honoring the men and women who died while serving in the U.S. Military. Originally known as Decoration Day, it originated in the years following the Civil War and became an official federal holiday in 1971. Many Americans observe Memorial Day by visiting cemeteries or memorials, holding family gatherings and participating in parades. We will make our own parade – on bikes! Unofficially, it marks the beginning of the summer season, which for us means Cycling Season, the best season of all!

2 Groups
Faster Group: 18-19 mph (regroup)
