2011 Mission to Mission Charity Bike Tour "Ride History"
Saturday, December 3, 2011 * Mission County Park #1 6030 Padre Drive, San Antonio, TX78214
The 14th annual Mission Tour began with the threat of thunderstorms and a sullen sky. Smiles replaced frowns as three hundred plus riders challenged the threatening weather and river reach construction detours to complete routes of 50, 30, and 15 miles. Starting ceremonies highlighted the Buffalo Soldier's bugler, presentation of the colors, and Star Wars' characters of The Rebel Legion. Family riders visited the three Spanish Colonial Missions along the trails of the Padres retracing 300 year old routes.
