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, Desoto, and Panola Sheriffs will provide traffic relief on the courses along with SAG support for all routes.


Online registration is January 1st - May 31st. The first 400 registrants will receive a premium SWAG bag, 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.

***Registration can be made via mail if desired. See printable, mail-in documents.
