LifeCycle is a community-friendly bike tour for cyclists of every age and skill-level. We offer a challenging event for the Lycra-loving, hard-core cyclists, and also a fun and non-intimidating event for leisure cyclists and families. Five routes are offered with beautiful country scenery including Caddo and Desoto Parish and dipping into portions of East Texas. Event includes pre-ride breakfast-snacks, fully-stocked rest stops, lunch, Kids' Fun Area, and a sponsor expo. Caddo and Desoto Parish Sheriffs will provide traffic relief on the courses along with Yokem Toyota providing SAG for all routes.


Online registration is February 1st - June 4th. The first 400 registrants will receive goody bag (with supe cool gift) and an event t-shirt, so get registered early! All registrants will receive a door prize ticket, and access to all after-ride activities. A finish-line medal will be given to all youth cyclists (14 and younger). Registration is non-refundable (no exceptions), but is transferrable.

Bicycle Give-A-Way 

Heart of Hope and The Bike Pedaler are sponsoring a drawing for a free Specialized bicycle for fundraisers only. For every $25 raised, you get a ticket placed in the drawing for one of 4 bikes listed below. The wonderful thing is that the winner gets to go to The Bike Pedaler, and get treated like royalty. So the winner chooses their bike out of the 4 listed, plus your size, gender, color, and endurance vs. competitive. You just can't beat a fundraising program that gives back like this:)

1) Roubaix SL4 Comp Compact - MSRP $2,950


2) Tarmac SL4 Comp Ultegra - MSRP $2,950


3) Ruby Comp - MSRP $2,950
