    USA Cycling Permit # 2012-1200

    In 2012 the Red River Riot is back and better than ever with the focus being the best and most challenging route possible. This is not an official "race" so don't look for prize money, sag support, or even rules. Get your spot early since the field is limited and because the entry fee goes up to $50 3/18/12.

    We're going to give you a great route to follow that will cover well over 100 miles of dirt roads in the scenic Red River area of North Texas. We'll got a great staging area, camping spot, party central location and will provide directions for everyone to find their way from Point A to Point Z.

    The long route will be around 120 miles
    The short route will be around 60 miles
    We may offer a mini route of around 30 miles if there is any interest
    (These routes are greatness)

    We will have limited beds available for a nominal fee in the "bunk house" but we have unlimited camping on the surrounding acreage. Entry fees include camping and kitchen/shower access.

    Prices cover the whole weekend but no half price if you only stay one night. Email if you want a bed those will have to be prepaid and organized separately.

    REMINDER: This is a self supported ride. There WILL NOT be any aid stations or SAG wagons. Do not attempt this ride if you are uncomfortable being 20 miles from civilization with ZERO support.

    Just sending out a quick reminder that early bird registration discounts expire 3/18. Currently registration for the weekend is $30 which includes camping Friday and Saturday nights, a bbq dinner Saturday and entry into the ride of your choice. The price goes up to $50 3/19. We have a few twin beds available in the ranch house by reservation only at an additional $20 for the weekend. Camping includes access to the house for showers and using the kitchen.

    The Riot will be on Saturday 4/7 (Easter weekend) and we will have various route lengths available for riders of almost all abilities. Whichever route you choose please carry enough with you to support you through the entire leg. There will not be aid stations nor sag vehicles as this is a self supported ride. Riders choosing to do the 120 mile route will come by the staging area again around the mid point so they will be able to reload before setting out on the second 60 miles.

    Please register by 3/30 if you would like to guarantee a tshirt. I think they look pretty cool.



    Here's a quick promo slideshow to give a little feel of it all:

    Bikeroutetoaster.com maps seem to work best for GPS import

    Short Route 36 miles (gravel primer) http://www.bikeroutetoaster.com/Course. ... rse=372085

    Morning 70 (main route) http://www.bikeroutetoaster.com/Course. ... rse=372080

    Afternoon 57 (for folks who do the whole Riot) http://www.bikeroutetoaster.com/Course. ... rse=372083

    Ride with GPS Maps are better online and have better cue sheets. Some people have had success with GPS import here too.

    Short Route Riot Short 36 miles - A bike ride in Muenster, Texas, US

    Morning 70 Riot Morning 70 miles - A bike ride in Muenster, Texas, US

    Afternoon 57 Riot Afternoon 57 miles - A bike ride in Muenster, Texas, US

    Course will definitely be marked. GPS is not a requirement by any means. It always makes for a good backup in case you miss a turn or if locals move signage. This year's course is "narrower" and uses more doubling back on some key roads so you'll probably see other riders coming and going.
