Thank You

The organizers of the 5th LBJ 100 Bicycle Tour would like to express their heartfelt thanks to all the volunteer helpers, who put in endless hours of patient work, mostly behind the scenes, but also at the early packet pick-ups and on the day of the tour itself, helpers without whose efforts this great event would not have been possible, and – of course – we would like to thank all our generous sponsors, too.

A special and heartfelt thank you to all the Rangers of the Lyndon B. Johnson National Historical Park, without whose invaluable and tireless help this event would not have been possible.

And last but not least we’d also like to thank all of the nearly 1,400 the riders  for their attendance as it is only them that make such an event a real success. And we’d especially want to thank them for their patience with all our little [hopefully not big] shortcomings in organizing such a large event.

To help us to learn and improve next year’s ride, we’d be grateful for any - positive or negative - comment, suggestion and/or criticism, by e-mail to info@lbj100bicycletour.org and/or by leaving your comment on our weblog: we’d really appreciate your feedback.

If you have a (short) story/account of your ride, or pictures or even video(s), we’d appreciate it if you’d let us post them on our website. In case you upload video clips to YouTube, we'd appreciate if you let us know the link. Please, e-mail them to webmaster@lbj100bicycletour.org.

And last but not least: we hope to see you all again at the Sixth Annual LBJ 100 Bicycle Tour.

Meanwhile: safe bicycling to you all!

T-Shirts

We strive to have a complimentary commemorative t-shirt for every rider, but regrettably can only guarantee one for riders pre-registered by February 29th. As of this year, we have technical t-shirts of wicking-grade material.

Jerseys

A commemorative cycle jersey again will be offered for the 2012 event. Furnished by Champ-Systems, a leader in the sports apparel industry, it will be available on-line when you register (price: $85), or may be purchased (beginning Jan. 15) at Ride Away Bicycles in San Antonio. These stunning jerseys have become collector's items!

Bicycle inspection

Bike inspections are not required to ride in the 5th Annual LBJ 100 Bicycle Tour.  However, riders are strongly encouraged to bring their bike in to any of the three Ride Away Bicycles shops in San Antonio, any of the REI stores in Austin or Round Rock, or Hill Country Bicycle Works in Fredericksburg or Kerrville at least two weeks prior to the day of the event (March 24).  These sponsors have graciously agreed to perform a basic Mechanical Inspection free of charge to identify any major issues with the equipment.  Of course, anything found where the rider would want the sponsor’s techs to correct would be subject to prevailing sponsor shop rates. Help ensure that you’re mechanically equipped for an enjoyable ride!
