About the Ride:

We’re stoked to see you all back for the 6th consecutive annual  Pace Bend Road Race! And this year, for the first time ever – the race is TWO days!

Located on scenic Lake Travis in the rolling hills west of Austin, the Pace Bend Road Race is one of the largest cycling races of the season. As one of the few events in Texas to feature full use of the roadway (no “center line” rule), cyclists from all around the world have found the race’s classic 6.2 mile circuit, punctuated by its sweeping curves and short, steep climbs, a prime opportunity to test themselves. It’s also an excellent course for spectators to get up close to the action.   All sales/registrations final, no refunds, no exceptions.  The event will be held rain or shine.  All USA Cycling Rules are in effect.  This event is part of the TXBRA Texas Cup – Elite event where points are calculated.
