Rodeo Road Rally 2016 - Presented By Mesquite Rotary Club
Since its beginnings in 1995, the Mesquite Rotary Club's Rodeo Road Rally has provided a consistently praised, fun event for cyclists, and has raised hundreds of thousands of dollars. This success has enabled the Mesquite Rotary Club to provide strong charitable support to the area community, and in support of Rotary International efforts.

The Rodeo Road Rally (formerly known as the Mesquite Rotary Bike Ride) is an extremely well organized event with traffic control at all intersections and excellent, well run rest stops. The Rally is attractive to the entire family with three routes of 20 miles, 42 miles and 65 miles. The event will start at the Mesquite Rodeo Convention Center, 1700 Rodeo Drive (near Military Parkway and I-635 L.B.J. Freeway) at 8:00 a.m. on Saturday, June 6, 2015. Included will be a catered breakfast and lunch from Panera Bread Cafe of Mesquite, Whataburger of Mesquite, and more, an event super-soft ringspun cotton t-shirt to the first 1,300 riders, a goody bag of gifts from area businesses, and more. Post-ride, beer will be available for purchase at the Mesquite Rodeo's 8 Second Bar.

All registered riders 18 years of age or older will be eligible to enter a raffle to win a new $2,500 Trek Emonda SL 6 Road Bike from Richardson Bike Mart, or other great door prizes. The bike raffle drawing will take place at 1:30 p.m. on Ride day at the Rodeo's 8 Second Bar. Riders must be present to win.

Rodeo Road Rally 2016 - Route Information
65 Miles (100K)
Meet the new route, same as the old route  ... you'll be humming along to The Who classic as we return back to the hilly scenic country roads of Sunnyvale. Designed for only the most seasoned cyclist, this route is actually 66.5 miles (107k) long and tours through the town of Sunnyvale before heading south, through Mesquite, and into rural southern Dallas County. The northern portion of the route is characterized by winding and rolling asphalt roads with a couple of challenging climbs. Heading south, the terrain becomes mostly flat and high winds are common. If the weather's hot, there are six well stocked rest stops approximately 10 miles apart to help you get through the day. But before attempting this challenging route, be sure you can cover the distance and go back to the convention center by 1 p.m.

42 Miles (65K)
This 42 mile route is the most popular distance among area cyclists and covers the same scenic rolling terrain as the (100 K) route, but cuts the day a bit shorter by staying in Mesquite. Three welcomed rest stops with the best volunteers you'll ever find will help ensure this ride is both relaxing and enjoyable. This route is ideal for riders who want the full experience of a challenging ride, but still want to have enough energy in the tank for enjoying the rest of their weekend.

20 Miles (33K)
Same general route as before, you'll stay mostly in Mesquite with one rest stop opportunity at approximately 20 miles. This route is designed for the beginner cyclist or young rider in mind, with mostly flat terrain and five noticeably short climbs.
