Cyclists Prepare for This Weekend's Conquer the Coast Bike Ride
CORPUS CHRISTI (Kiii News) -
The Chamber of Commerce released the route for this weekend's Conquer the Coast bike ride, and cyclists are gearing up for the event.
The ride will begin at Whataburger Field and travel southbound on Mesquite Street. It will then move westbound, down Power Street, and onto Broadway.
Then, it will hop onto the Harbor Bridge, and from there, the trek will move through Ingleside, Aransas Pass and Port Aransas, ultimately circling back to Whataburger Field.
"From what I understand right now, we're at over 1,300 participants in all three events, so there's quite a few people out there ready to get out there and conquer the coast," said Dennis Moynihan of Bay Area Bicycles. "Hopefully the weather is going to hold off for us and we'll get it underway and get everybody out there safely."
Conquer the Coast kicks off at 7:30 a.m. Saturday, weather permitting.
