Tour Dallas 2012

The annual first Saturday in April Tour Dallas bike ride had over 3000 participants this year.  The courses are 8, 20, and 30 miles long through some of the more scenic areas of Dallas, including the Swiss Avenue historic districts, Lakewood, White Rock Lake, and Turtle Creek.  I have participated the past four years, riding the 30 mile course, and have had great fun.  This year I decided to ride to the start at Dallas City Hall on the Katy Trail, one of the Rails-to-Trails that passes not far from our neighborhood.  With the trips to and from home, I managed around 45 miles on my bike.  The pizza served at the finish really hit the spot.

Here are some photos.  Some taken on the fly, as it were.
