Downtown Tyler welcomes the Beauty and the Beast Bicycle Tour

More than one thousand cyclists will be pedaling their way through the brick streets as the largest cycling event in East Texas returns to Downtown Tyler.

On Friday, Feb. 7 at 6 p.m. at ETX Brewery, the Tyler Bicycle Club will announce the routes, present the new logos and the new “beast” that cyclists will have to slay!

“Downtown Tyler and its merchants have embraced this event,” said President of the Tyler Bicycle Association Bill Lewis. “We anticipate 1,000 cyclists in attendance to see the beauty of the Rose City and celebrate on the Downtown Square.”

The tour name, Beauty and the Beast, depicts a beautiful bike ride in the rolling hills of east Texas, with the “Beast” being a hill on Old Omen Road as you leave Lake Tyler. Participants earn a medal if they can “slay the Beast” and pedal to the top of the hill.

The Bicycle Tour features three routes of 26, 43 and 62 miles that will begin at College Avenue and Erwin Street at 9 a.m. on Saturday, March 14th. The City of Tyler Transit buses will be running early that morning to help cyclists get to downtown to ease parking issues. The cyclists will make their way east of town and head toward Overton.

This is the 32nd year of the event and the tour’s roots go back to the late 1980s when Lance Armstrong made an appearance and was the largest cycling event in the state.

Proceeds from this year’s event will go to support the Salvation Army and the maintenance of the Mountain Bike Trails at Lindsay and Faulkner Parks.
