About the Waco Wild West
It’s been a rough road this past year, but it’s about to get super SWEET! The Skittles Waco Wild West Bicycle Tour has made a tradition of great rest stops and super rider support will return LIVE for 2021. This is one event you don’t want to miss! There is a tour for everyone of all ages, all levels, all types of bikes. Get ready to fill your helmet with candy after you cross that finish line!
A family tradition for people all over Texas, the Waco Wild West 100 has been around since 1985. That’s a lot of candy! All volunteer driven and a 501c3 nonprofit, the ride’s goals are to encourage and motivate people to cycle, to promote safe riding and camaraderie, as well as to donate to local nonprofits. Additional funds raised over the years have been donated to Be the Match, our local bike club, veterans, our remote radio operators, school bike rodeos, and many, many more worthy causes. We look forward to the contributions we will be able to make with this year’s ride!
Proceeds from this ride benefit the Be The Match Registry® and various other local organizations. At the Miracle Match Marathon in January 2018, we had 39 people join the National Marrow Donor Registry and put their names on a list to help save the lives of patients searching for a match. If you are between the ages of 18-44 and missed the chance and still want to be a part of this live saving mission, go to Join.marrow.org/save1life. All it takes is a cheek swab to join and make a difference.
Our Board and Key Volunteers
The best part of the Waco Wild West 100 is seeing families riding together and getting kids exposed to the fun of bicycling. Helping out worthwhile charities is a bonus.
Paul has been involved with the Waco Wild West for 17 years….give or take a year or two.
