It's that time of year again.....time to Burn Your Buns for Bridgewood Farms!
For the last 14 years, cyclists have taken to the streets and through the rolling hills of Willis and Conroe in the early morning hours of July 4th at the the annual “Burn Your Buns” Bike Ride to benefit Bridgewood Farms. Last year the ride included 503 registered riders and this year we are aiming even higher!
Riders of varying skill and athletic abilities come out from local businesses, and bike clubs, plus seasoned cyclists ride the 20, 31, or 62 mile course along tree lined streets and rolling hills in northern Montgomery County. Many participants “double the fun” by going down and out twice to cover the 62 miles!
All participating groups and organizations work together to ensure the success of the family-friendly ride by recruiting participants, law enforcement, volunteers, and the Montgomery County Hospital District to monitor the route.
Both Mike McDougal and Woodlands Cycling Club have supported the bike ride since its inception in January 2004. The WCC takes responsibility for the ride route, TXDOT approvals, and all promotion to cycling clubs, and ensures that pointers are present at all major intersections to guide the cyclists along the route.
