WHAT PEOPLE SAY /
Second time on this Dublin, Texas ride and IT'S NOW BECOME ONE OF OUR FAVORITES. Check in the night before was quick with welcoming volunteers. Country roads were marked with directional paint. Mostly flat but some long climbs. Rest stops were well-spaced and stocked. SAG vehicles were supported by amateur radio. WE WILL RIDE AGAIN NEXT YEAR!
I have done a lot of these types of rides. This is the first time for the Tour de Agua. It was great! Online registration worked well, communications before the race were good, and the ride started right on time. The route was VERY well marked, SAG stops were great and the signs for them well done. Again, volunteers were very friendly. ALL IN ALL, ONE OF THE ABSOLUTE BEST ORGANIZED RIDES I HAVE EVER DONE!
THIS IS A GREAT RALLY. The organizers are friendly, the registration is quick and efficient, the ride starts on time, and the people of Dublin appreciate you making the drive.
The route? ONE OF THE PRETTIEST YOU ARE GOING TO FIND. Hills are challenging, but they seem to reward you with just as many downhill's.
