There are a few things that will be different this year due to the construction at Cleburne High School. The start of the ride and all of the registration activities will take place right across the street from where they normally take place. We will be headquartered at Cleburne Bible Church.
The address is 930 N Nolan River Rd, Cleburne, TX 76033. We are lucky to have this location to work out of. This means the entire ride will follow the same routes it has in the past and will be the same distances. We have been asked about access to showers after the ride. We have always had access to the showers in the high school.
This year we have a new sponsor, PLANET FITNESS!!!! Planet Fitness is allowing our riders to use the showers at their Cleburne Facility. Planet Fitness in Cleburne is only a mile from the Start/Finish line. This is great news. Thank You Planet Fitness.
Some people are asking about parking campers and RV's at the high school like they have done in the past. We cannot guarantee if any parking will be available at the high school for this purpose. We will be using Cleburne Bible Church and the large field beside the church for parking this year.
There may be some parking at the high school but we will not know until the day of the ride. These are some adjustments that are having to be made this year. We knew they were coming and we have prepared for them. It will still be the same great routes, hills, and volunteers!!!!
WE CAN'T WAIT TO SEE YOU BACK AT THE GOATNECK!!!

The Goatneck Bike ride is a rolling hill course which averages around 35 feet per mile of climbing. Click on the Directions tab and go to the Routes layout page for (69.5, 41, 10 & 27) that provides elevation maps. The roads are well maintained country roads with little traffic. The prevailing winds during this time of year are from the southwest, which provides a tail wind for the last portion of the ride coming into the finish! We provide rest stops every 8-9 miles on all courses. Last year we had close to 1,800 riders. We provide showers after the ride at Planet Fitness located close to the ride area. All money raised goes to various Johnson County charities. Last year we were able to donate over $30,000 to local charities because of the participation of the riders.
