Thanks for your interest in St. Jude North Texas Bicycle Rally!

We are thrilled to announce a NEW event location for the one-day St. Jude North Texas Bicycle Rally in Westlake, Texas. We have designed a new route to begin out of the beautiful Charles Schwab Headquarters in Westlake. Route links will be provided closer to the date.

Participants who raise $500 or more will receive an official St. Jude branded cycling jersey. Invite friends and family to donate, cheer you on or join you as you ride. Have fun and help us raise funds for the kids of St. Jude.

Help St. Jude Children's Research Hospital continue to lead the way the world understands, treats and defeats childhood cancer and other life-threatening diseases.

Treatments invented at St. Jude have helped push the overall childhood cancer survival rate from 20% to more than 80% since it opened in 1962. And we won't stop until no child dies from cancer.

Register today and start fundraising for the kids of St. Jude.

All participants must be 18 years or older.

 
 
  1. Safety is our number one priority.  Please review the information below before rolling out with us:

    Ride Information:

    • The minimum age to ride is 18.
    • There is NO fundraising minimum, but is encouraged. If you raise $500 then you qualify to receive a St. Jude branded cycling jersey.
    • We ride rain or shine. In the event of lightning or other dangerous conditions, we will delay the event until conditions improve.
    • Helmets must be worn at all times- no exceptions.
    • The route is not closed to traffic, so cyclists need to exercise caution at all times and obey all rules of the road. Route information will be posted soon.
    • Each cyclist is also responsible for verifying that the intersection is clear before riding through it.
    • Communicate well in advance with gestures and words when passing, stopping, slowing, car back, gravel, tracks, etc.
    • Be visible, day and night. Use plenty of lights and reflectors and wear bright clothing.
    • Carry your phone with emergency information available.
      • Your wristband also has an emergency number to call for roadside assistance: (469) 213-7173.
    • Be prepared; hydration, nutrition and proper bicycle tools.
    • This is a fun ride, not a race.

    SAG vehicles:
    Support and Gear (SAG) vehicles provide transportation to riders in need.  These vehicles will not stop to make bike repairs, but they can transport cyclist to the next rest stop. SAG vehicles only move a cyclist forward along the route.

    To signal a SAG vehicle driver, follow these steps:

    • Move safely all the way off the road and well out of the path of other riders.
    • Stand near your bike.
    • Remove your helmet and wave it at the SAG vehicle.

    SAG vehicles will pick you up, as room permits, and move you to the next rest stop. 

    Bike Medics:

    • These trained, professional medical personnel ride the route, and are available to help all participants. Each rest stop is also fully equipped with first aid and basic medical supplies.
  2. Events are more rewarding when shared with others. Join or form a team to help raise awareness for the kids of St. Jude. Thanks to fundraisers like you, families never receive a bill from St. Jude for treatment, travel, housing or food.

    Types of teams include:

    • family and friends
    • corporate team
    • cycling clubs

    Why is the team program important?

    • Excite and engage family/friends by providing opportunities to participate in an inspiring community event and join a larger nationwide movement to fight childhood cancer.
    • Collectively showcase your generous spirit within our local community, while also aligning with an organization internationally-known for its research and treatment success.
    • Offers employees a chance to bond outside the office.
    • Unite with other local companies who have committed to ending childhood cancer.

    Team incentives:

  3. Register. Raise. Ride.

    All participants will receive a personalized fundraising page, fundraising tips and the chance to earn prizes based on the amount raise.
