    Ride through broad valleys, over sweeping vistas, and gently rolling
    hills. The Armadillo Hill Country Classic is your chance to
    experience the best that Central Texas has to offer cyclists — at any
    experience level.

    Featuring nearly every imaginable mileage option from 14 to 120 miles,
    and plenty of excellent rest stops with experienced, professional SAG
    support, the Armadillo Classic is your chance to set a new goal and
    achieve a new personal cycling milestone.

    This year, we feature the 120 mile metric century option that we
    introduced, but admittedly didn't fully explain last year. Don't be
    late at the starting point either because riders attempting the 80,
    100, and 120 mile options must arrive at our 30-mile-point "Dillo
    Door" before 10:30 am.. Otherwise they will be directed to continue on
    one of the shorter options. Armadillo Classic riders on-site
    registration & packet pickup begins at 6:30. The ride starts at 8:00

    Also noteworthy is the 6.5-mile Kids and Family Ride with a separate
    starting point in Bertram where kids ride free with a parent or
    guardian who only pays $10 to ride. The ride starts at 10 am.

    The Armadillo is one of the most popular rides in the Central Texas
    region and certainly the best value. Your registration fee supports
    bicycle safety education & free bike helmets for central Texas
