The Texas 4000 is a charity bicycle ride by college students. The ride starts in Austin, Texas and ends in Anchorage, Alaska. Approximately 4000 miles. The ride consists of four different routes. The Sierra Route is scheduled to pass through Grants Pass on July 8th and eventually end up at the airport in Merlin where the riders will camp out over night. Along the way they hope to raise money for cancer research. Might be fun to stop by once they arrive to see how they are doing and offer some support.
