A bicycle rally that attracts families, weekend riders and avid cyclists, the 22nd annual Collin Classic, to be held June 8, in McKinney, is a multioption course ride. It begins and finishes at McKinney North High School and offers routes of 4, 15, 36, 47, 56 and 65 miles.
This event is a bicycle rally, not a race, so there are no prizes for finish times or placement. All proceeds benefit City House, a Collin County-based nonprofit that has been sheltering abused, neglected and homeless youth since 1988, providing emergency shelter and transitional residential services to children and young adults that are in need due to abuse, neglect and homelessness.
Registration and packet pick-up begins at 6:30 a.m. and the bicycle rally starts at 8 a.m. Fully stocked break points are stationed along the way, along with roving bike mechanics and medical support, if needed. A post-ride party at the finish line features a big tent area with cool treats, misters and fans, a non-alcoholic “Biker Bar” and massages for a fee. Riders can freshen up with a shower at the high school.
Location: 2550 Wilmeth Rd., McKinney North High School, McKinney. For more information, visit CollinClassic.org.
