The Goatneck Bike Ride

Money Raised Benefits Cleburne Education Foundation

The Goatneck Bike Ride is a rolling hill course which averages around 35 feet per mile of climbing throughout Johnson County, Texas. Click on the Directions tab and go to the Routes layout page for (69.5, 41, 10 & 27) that provides elevation maps. The roads are well maintained country roads with little traffic. The prevailing winds during this time of year are from the southwest, which provides a tail wind for the last portion of the ride coming into the finish!

We provide rest stops every 8-9 miles on all courses. Last year we had close to 1,500 riders. Last year we were able to donate over $30,000 to local charities and teacher grants because of the participation of the riders.
