El Diablo FAQs

What time does the ride start?

Please arrive at 7:30 AM to sign the ride waiver and get a wristband. Wheels down at 8 AM for the 5 card ride. The family ride will leave at 8:15. 

How much does the ride cost?

The ride is free! But, you can choose to pre-purchase a lunch for $10.

Is there a packet pick-up?

No, there is no packet for the ride. Simply arrive at the Bicycle Sport Shop South Lamar store between 7:15-7:30 AM to sign a waiver, pick up a wristband, and get your first card.

How long is the ride? How long will it take?

The ride can be however long you'd like. If you're playing the poker game, you'll need to start and finish at the Lamar store and ride to our Bee Cave, Parmer, Research, and Guadalupe stores to pick up a playing card. How you get to each store and in what order is up to you, but it must be by bike. The distance will be roughly 65 miles. 

If you do not want to ride the full route, simply ride from our Lamar store to the Bee Cave store and back for a 30-mile ride.

The family ride is around 7 miles.  

Is there a ride leader?

There will be ride volunteers on the suggested 65-mile route, but please do not rely on our volunteers. Be self-sufficient and know the route.

The family ride will be slow-paced and we strongly encourage riders to stay with the pack. 

Do I have to do the whole ride?

Nope. Ride as much or as little as you’d like, but you’ll need to ride to the Bee Cave, Parmer, Research, Guadalupe stores, and Lamar in order to get a playing card for the five-card stud game.

Do I have to ride the suggested route?

Nope. We have a suggested route on the website but the route you take is entirely up to you! Just remember, you’ll need to stop at the Bee Cave, Parmer, Research, and Guadalupe stores to pick-up playing cards to complete your hand.

Are there rest stops?

The Bicycle Sport Shop Bee Cave, Parmer, Research, and Guadalupe stores will serve as rest stops.

Is there a SAG vehicle?

No. This is an unsupported ride.

Is this a no-drop ride?

No, this is not a no-drop ride and there will not be a ride sweep. 

The family ride will be no-drop.

What if I get a flat tire?

Since this is an unsupported ride, you’ll need to have the necessary items to repair a flat.

Will there be beer post-ride?

Of course! Real Ale Brewing Company is providing beer. We’ll be serving free beer in the Bicycle Sport Shop South Lamar parking lot from 11:30-3:30 PM (or until supplies run out). There will also be music and food available for purchase.

Will there be food pre or post ride?

There will be free post-ride beers and other beverages as well as food from Mama Noy's available for purchase. You can also save yourself a step now and pre-purchase a lunch combo for $10. Before and during the ride, the stores will be open where you can purchase nutrition items.

What style of poker is this?

Five-card stud. You’ll need all five cards to play. 

The family ride will be playing the best hand out of two cards. Ace pairs are the highest. If there are no pairs, then the highest number in the hand wins. 

How do I collect cards?

The playing cards will be available to pick up at stores’ cash registers. You must start at the Bicycle Sport Shop South Lamar Store for your wristband. The suggested route’s first stop is at Bicycle Sport Shop Bee Cave (first card) with a second stop at Bicycle Sport Shop Parmer (second card), and a third stop at Bicycle Sport Shop Research (third card), and the fourth stop at Bicycle Sport Shop Guadalupe (fourth card), but these could be reversed or visited in any order if it correlates with your personal route. The last card will be collected when you return to Lamar.

For the family ride, the first card will be picked up at the Guadalupe store, the second one will be collected upon return to Lamar.

If I don’t get all 5 cards, can I still present my hand?

No, you’ll need all 5 playing cards in order to present your hand. The poker game is 5-card stud.

What does the winning hand get?

The winning five-card stud poker hand will receive a $250 gift card to Bicycle Sport Shop. The winning family pair will receive a $100 gift card.

What if there’s a tie? Is there a tiebreaker?

If there’s a tie, we’ll pull a name out of a hat.

Where do I park?

For the ride, please park in either the AGC (American General Contractors) parking lot directly south of the store or in the parking lots off of Toomey Road by the baseball fields. Please pay attention to meters. Or, better yet, ride your bike to the ride!
