Best Fledgling Altruistic Tradition

The Ride for the Roses

With Corpus Christi native Bobby Julich finishing third in this year's Tour de France, Lance Armstrong may no longer even be the best cyclist from Texas much less from the U.S. No matter, he's still tops in our town. Who else could bring Miguel Indurain, Greg LeMond and Jakob Dylan to Austin? With rides of 25, 50, and 100 miles, the annual bicycle trek through the Hill Country allows anybody to help Armstrong help cure cancer. And with his buddies bringing the rock, even lazy people can help the cause by simply going to a party.
