Applebutter Bike Ride

This Saturday bike ride is a great introduction into long distance bike riding! We will ride 20 miles at a moderate pace to the Idalou Applebutter Festival where we’ll pick apples, listen to live music and eat a catered barbeque lunch. We will spend approximately two hours at the festival before getting back on our bikes to ride back to campus. We will be van supported on our ride in case riders need assistance. We hope you join us for a fun day of riding and festivities unique to west Texas.
