The Houston-Area ALC Training Series provides friendly, no-drop training rides to help prepare you for AIDS/LifeCycle.

This ride combines trails on Sims Bayou, Brays Bayou, White Oak Bayou, and Buffalo Bayou with City streets to create an in-town route of up to 86 miles. There are five checkpoints along the way where you can choose to shorten the route. Mileage choices are thus 23 miles, 38 miles, 49 miles, 66 miles, 75 miles, or 86 miles. Riders who decide to leave the group early and take one of the shorter options will be expected to make their way back on their own. Facilitator TRL will make the call to take the shorter choice at a checkpoint for all riders if the pace of the group would result in finishing after 5 pm. Over 65% of the route is on trails or bikeways free of traffic. Rest of the route is on low traffic urban roads. Weather will be Houston Hot and Humid. Bring at least two water bottles with you, at least one with electrolyte. There are numerous opportunities on the route to replenish water but you will go through water quickly. When arriving at ride start, park on Balmforth Lane, which is on the west side of Godwin Park. No restrooms or water fountains are open at Godwin Park.
