7th Annual Conquer the Coast Ride

For those of you looking for a great ride but maybe with a change of scenery and location check out the 7th Annual Conquer the Coast Ride. The event is scheduled to take place Friday, September 24th and Saturday September 25th along the Corpus Christi shoreline. Riders will have the opportunity to take a ride along the Corpus Christi shoreline or ride the 65-mile course that takes you along the scenic views of the Coastal Bend and the chance to cycle with dolphins!

For the first year ever a shorter 10-mile ride designed for beginner and younger riders will be offered. The new 10-mile course will follow the same route as the 25-mile ride along Shoreline and Ocean Drive. The 7thAnnual Conquer the Coast™ will also give riders an opportunity to own a special element from this year’s ride, a commemorative Nolan Ryan number “34” rider jersey that honors the Hall of Fame pitcher’s record 7-no hitters during his magnificent 27-year major league career.

The Corpus Christi Chamber of Commerce and Epic Sports & Entertainment are offering cyclists four total course selections. The 10-mile and 25-mile cruise along the Corpus Christi shoreline, the 65-mile course ride through several cities plus the “Toughest 18 miles in Texas” and for the avid competitor, the Criterium, also known as the Crit will place rider against rider reaching high speeds of course racing.

Still not challenging enough? You can compete in the toughest 18-mile time trial in Texas within your 65 mile ride!!!!

Proceeds generated from the event support the Texas A&M University – Corpus Christi Tarpon Foundation, STARRS (South Texas Area Runners and Riders), and South Texas ALS Association.
