The sponsors for the Texas Time Trials are so very important. Without them, there is no way possible for us to put on this event every year! We are so thankful to have a handful of dedicated sponsors that return year after year.
Bicycles Inc. has been one of our main sponsors since we started The Texas Time Trials over fourteen years ago. They are invaluable! Bicycles, Inc. loans us their truck and trailer every year which is instrumental. They are required to haul supplies like trophies and t-shirts to Glen Rose plus the truck is used for SAG. . Thanks to Scott and all of Bicycles, Inc. for their continued support. If you need a new bike or bike supplies or are just in the neighborhood go by one of their four locations in Arlington, Fort Worth, Hurst or Southlake. You can also shop their website at www.bicyclesinc.com. Check their website for shop rides and other area rides on their calendar. Be sure to thank them for their TTT sponsorship and friend them on Facebook.
The Texas Time Trials moved to Glen Rose in 2009 and what a terrific place! The City of Glen Rose along with The Glen Rose Convention and Visitor’s Bureau has sponsored us since our arrival in town. You have probably seen their logo on the front of our t-shirts. The City of Glen Rose allows us to use their park. Plan a weekend to visit Glen Rose any time of year and enjoy all the area has to offer. Remember to friend them on Facebook. View all the area has to offer at www.glenrosetexas.net

How could we do The Texas Time Trials without support from The Fort Worth Bicycle Association (FWBA) and Lone Star Randonneurs who send us volunteers and racers every year? A big thank you to both of these clubs for all the help! See more on some of the great folks from both clubs in the volunteer recap coming out next.
