The 27th Annual Collin Classic Bike Rally is the premier cycling event of North Texas! The 17 mile route is great for casual riders and the 62 mile route will appeal to the more experienced participants. Join us as we begin at Oak Point Park off Spring Creek Parkway and head east. The ride will take you over Lake Lavon Dam which is normally closed to the public. We’ve improved the longer routes over 2017 as well as the rest stops. The Riders Village will have more live entertainment this year and, of course, food and beverages. This bike rally has options for riders of all experience levels, and fun for the whole family. Come join us on Saturday, June 16, 2018! The ride will start at 8AM. Packet Pickup Dates/Locations - HERE!

Our clubs concentrate on three core areas of academic and career programs, development of character and leadership skills and health and life skills.
