Hundreds of Bikers Race in the Red River Bike Rally

Posted:

SHERMAN, TX--Hundreds of bikers lined up for a big race in Sherman Saturday. Some rode for a whopping 100 miles.

The Red River Bike Rally in Sherman, Texas attracted more than 400 cyclists. Riders were divided into different race tracks--some as short as 27 miles, and others as long as one hundred.

The routes started at the Austin College Apple Stadium and followed county roads with little traffic. Money raised goes to various charities, including the boys and girls club and the children's advocacy center.

"They come from all over north Texas," Joe Brown said, Grayson County District Attorney. "Even with the heat, we got plenty of water and Gatorade and things to beat the heat, so we're looking forward to a good day."

"This is something that we can do together," Lugay Chiang said, about she and her husband riding together. "It's great exercise and we just mainly enjoy the activity of being together and doing something fun together we enjoy."

Lugay and her husband Gary ride a tandem--or cycle that requires two to pedal. They said that they're dedicating this race to a cyclist friend and member of the Greater Dallas Bicyclist Club who died just a couple of weeks ago.
