Looking for a fun way to start your Fourth of July festivities? Then check out the "Tour de Meat" ride starting and finishing in Elgin, Texas on Saturday, July 2nd. If you're wondering why it's called "Tour de Meat" it's because each ride in the series finishes at a BBQ restaurant.
This Austin Duathletes ride starts and finishes in the parking lot of the Southside Market in Elgin, Texas. Wheels go down at 8:30 AM, and there will be distances of 20, 30, 40, and 50 miles, over mostly quiet country roads, through ranch land and farmland.
Lunch afterward at the world famous Southside Market, regularly on top 10 lists for the best barbecue joints not only in Texas, but America. Everyone is welcome, all levels of rider, and the ride is free, but bring some $ for the meat. Just show up and be ready to ride at 8:30 that morning.
