4th Annual Ride - October 21, 2023
The Barrow Volksride is the third Saturday in October in Salado, Texas. This ride supports the brave men and women of the Salado Volunteer Fire Department. Register at https://www.bikereg.com/barrow-volk-ride
Riders choose from 16 mile, 32 mile, 66 mile, or 100 mile routes in the scenic Central Texas hill country. Routes start and finish at Barrow Brewing Company and cover roads from Holland to Belton and Nolanville. The 66 and 100 mile routes are a challenge with 2500' of climb! Routes are fully supported until 1:30 p.m. Riders not back at that time are directed to a short-cut. Our partners from the SVFD and the Sheriff's office will be located at some key intersections during the ride. Riders must wear their registration bib numbers at all times.
This is a family friendly event that ends with a cold pint and a hot, fresh pretzel at the finish line! Enjoy the Oktoberfest celebration after your ride. There is authentic German food, German music, and German games all day long.... plus incredible craft beer!
Riders must register by September 30th to receive the souvenir t-shirt. They are the softest shirts with a design you will be proud to wear year-round. All registrants will receive a pint and hot pretzel, redeemable by tags on their bib numbers. This event is rain or shine. There are no refunds but registrations can be transferred.
