Bike The City Tour - Dallas to McKinney, via US 75
BikeDFW was made aware of this event by one of our member clubs. After gathering some information we recommend that potential participants use caution if they are thinking about signing up. Here is what we know:
- The Cities of Dallas, Plano, Richardson, and McKinney are not sponsors and have had their logos removed from the event web site.
- As far as we know now, no permits for this event have been procured from any of the cities that would be involved.
- We have been told that it is unlikely that permission would be granted to close US 75 for 30 miles between Dallas and McKinney.
While this would be an exciting event, potential participants should think twice about registering, and paying for, the Bike the City Tour until the promoter provides evidence that a realistic plan, permits and permissions have been obtained.
