About the Ride
The 23rd Annual Collin Classic Bike Rally is set to roll on Saturday, June 14th, in McKinney, Tex. Catering to the serious cyclist, the weekend rider, and family riders, there is something for every level of interest at the Collin Classic.
Starting and finishing at McKinney North High School (ride start is 8 am), this year’s rally offers open-road routes from 22 to 64 miles in length. Routes are designed to maximize rider experience taking into account traffic congestion and chip-seal. There is also a Plano Cycling & Fitness Kids Safety Clinic and Ride that is great for all ages (this will take place at approximately 8:30 am at the starting line and closed street at McKinney North High School).
Throughout each route, riders will enjoy fully-stocked rest stops and a variety of cyclist support services including law enforcement, professional medical services, SAG vehicles, roving bike mechanics, and ride guides.
Proceeds from the event will benefit City House – a nonprofit agency in Collin County that has been protecting and sheltering abused and homeless youth since 1988.
“This is the 23rd year for the Collin Classic and we are anticipating the best ride we have ever had,” said Collin Classic Ride Director Teresa Keenan. “We are building upon the tradition of this great event with added amenities that are focused on the riders’ overall experience. Our goal is to be one of the top rides in North Texas and we are very excited about where we are headed.”
“The Andrea-Mennen Family Foundation is proud to be associated with City House and their fantastic efforts to help homeless, abused and neglected children in Collin County,” said Rudy Andrea, president of TAFF. “Children are our most valuable resource and we need to protect them. City House has been helping kids for over 25 years and they really make an impact on our community. Their efforts mirror what our foundation is all about – kids and family.”
