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!
