All three rides will start and finish at Bayfront Park in Corpus Christi. The 66-mile ride leads cyclists over the Harbor Bridge - 138 feet high overlooking the Port of Corpus Christi - to Portland, through Ingleside, Aransas Pass and to Port Aransas, including time on the Port Aransas Ferry where riders may have a chance encounter with a dolphin or two. The route continues through Upper Padre Island – including the “Toughest 18 Miles in Texas” - and then through Naval Air Station Corpus Christi on the way to breathtaking views of Ocean Drive and Corpus Christi Bay and back through downtown Corpus Christi. The 10-mile cruise and 21-mile ride are just as captivating and rewarding with cyclists riding down Shoreline Drive down to Ocean Drive towards the campus of Texas A&M University-Corpus Christi, and then back to downtown Corpus Christi.
