This year the Gravel Pursuit will take place on Saturday, April 30, 2016, near Waco, Texas, with courses located in McLennan and Bosque Counties.

The Bear Mountain Bike Shop and Outdoor Stores and our sponsors will be donating funds to a deserving local charity and two community organizations such as the Waco/McLennan County Chapter of the Testicular Cancer Foundation, the Waco Bicycle Club Bike & Pedestrian Advocacy Program, and Waco Striders Running Club Scholarship Program. We are looking forward to welcome you to this fun event. We believe our venue will be a great way for you to enjoy some of the best gravel roads and scenery in Central Texas. The Hell of the Southwest offers routes along beautiful gravel roads, some shaded by trees, some on sunlit country roads that meander through ranches, by rivers, creeks, and streams. We offer three courses featuring 80-85% gravel roads and 15-20% paved roads. The roads vary in surface condition from good gravel, to small cinder like sand, to dirt, to bigger rock, to some rutted wash out, to chip seal and smooth asphalt pavement.

It was the late 1970's when a small group of cyclists in Austin, Texas decided to take on a unique challenge and satisfy a desire for their two favorite things... riding bikes and ... moredrinking great tasting beer. It was at that moment in time when the Great Austin to Shiner Pedal was born.

Throughout the years GASP has evolved into one of the biggest, best bike rides in the state of Texas and beyond while at the same time ensuring the small town feel of its roots are not lost. Get ready to hop and your bike, ride a pretty long way and have a great time.

After cyclists cross the finish line at the Spoetzl Brewery, an afternoon of music and food and, of course, ice cold Shiner Beer awaits! We'll have shower trucks set up so you can rinse off and change clothes. Enjoy a little more Shiner hospitality by taking a free tour of the historic Spoetzl Brewery. Free tours of the Spoetzl Brewery will be conducted from 1:30pm to 4:30pm.

We'll see you in Shiner!

Ride Against Hunger Parker County - Presented by Lakeshore Drive Baptist Church & North Side Baptist Church 100% of the proceeds from Ride Against Hunger go to providing weekend ... moremeals for Parker Country school children who are on free and reduced lunch - children who would otherwise be forced to skip meals when they're away from school. Packs of Love programs provide kids with enough packaged food to get them through the weekend when they leave school on Friday. Ride Against Hunger helps fund the programs. The result? Kids arrive at school on Monday happy and ready to learn.

Ride Against Hunger begins with a pro-style, police escort around the Parker County courthouse circle and out of downtown Weatherford. Once on the edge of town you'll be treated to some of, if not THE, best road biking in the state. That's because Parker County is known for long country roads that wind past farms, lakes and ranches. You'll find challenging climbs and exciting descents as well as beautiful hilltop vistas that will make you want to stop, get off your bike and snap a photo or two. Best of all, you won't have big city or hill country traffic to contend with and each route includes fully stocked reststops with bathroom facilities and plenty of food, water and sports drinks.

WHAT YOU GET:

Post-ride BBQ brisket dinner for all participants

Police escort around courthouse square and out of town

SAG support

Plenty of rest stops
