Race on open, tranquil and scenic Central Texas county roads at GFNY Waco. The beautiful nature will amaze and inspire you as you ride through the main Blackland Prairie ecoregion, rolling hills and the Edwards Plateau savanna. The race course passes farmland, cattle ranches and dairies.
Race week activities are headquartered from the Hilton Waco Three Rivers Ballroom.
The race starts and finishes on North University Parks Drive near the Hilton Waco. After traveling on the closed-to-cars University Parks Drive and crossing the Brazos River via the Herring Ave Bridge, you leave the City of Waco and enter McLennan County and its vast nature. 
The effort will go up a notch as you tackle a 2-mile-long hill just before entering the 35-mile loop. The loop has some flat sections for fast peloton riding, and also gently rolling hills that will break up the pelotons.
The medium course riders will do the loop once, while the competitive, long course riders will do the loop twice.
You track back the outbound roads to return to Waco and the festive finish line on North University Parks Drive. Join us at the post-race celebrations at the Waco Convention Center for the post-race meal, music and awards ceremony.
