Insurance For Texans Gravel Royalty series
The Panaracer Texas Chainring Massacre is a full on gravel grinder featuring a unique combination of dirt roads and desolate country roads that promises to be both scenic and challenging. Riders will be able to enjoy a fantastic route that starts and ends in the “civilized” part of the D/FW Metroplex near Valley View, TX while meandering through some scenic rural areas.
100K Dash For the Cash – This marked course ride will provide neutral aid/support station at approximately the half way point but no outside support is allowed except at the aid station.

All roads whether paved or unpaved are public roads subject to the regulations of the great State of Texas. Participants are required to obey all “rules of the road” and laws for the applicable jurisdiction(s) in which they operate their bicycles and/or other vehicles. This applies to both the featured event as well as any practice or warm up events.
