The ninth annual Honey Tour bicycle ride is set for Saturday, Sept. 1, beginning in Burleson.
All proceeds will go to the Burleson Chamber of Commerce and will be used in the youth and children’s programs, according to Bobby Woolard, Burleson chamber member.
Riders will be staged at 7:55 a.m. at Kerr Middle School, 517 SW Johnson Ave. in Burleson.
There will be no late starts after 8:30 a.m and the course will close at 2 p.m.
The Alvarado Area Chamber of Commerce will man a rest stop for the Honey Tour.
“We need volunteers to commit to help at the rest stop,” said chamber president Clint Davis. “We will need to be there to start set-up by 8 a.m., and although the course will be closed at 2 p.m., we will be done when the last rider has gone through.”
Entry fee is $25 per rider, pre-registered, and other paid riders will not be charged any additional fees.
Rest stops are located approximately 10 miles apart.
“There you will find cold water, fresh fruit and lots of encouragement.” Davis said.
Road assistance will be provided by numerous, clearly marked vehicles on all sections of the route, either helping with mechanical troubles or transporting riders to Kerr Middle School.
