Bike Routes and MapsCourse Descriptions
Routes are always subject to change up until the last day for construction, road conditions, and even dogs. (We all love dogs but only when they are behind the fence!)
All routes are supported with rest stops and police at busy crossings.
All routes will close at 3:00 PM. No SAG support will be available after that time.
We regret that after almost 30 years, we will not be able to offer the 100 mile route this year. The route continues to have challenges every year that tax our volunteers, from road construction to ice to traffic control. Please feel free to email us with any questions. We thank you for your understanding and for your continuing support of the Waco Wild West 100.
10 Mile Route
This is a fun ride for the family. Start at the starting line with all the riders but ride through Waco’s beautiful Cameron Park and then back to downtown Waco on the paved bike path along Martin Luther King Drive. Tour a little bit of downtown before you head to the finish line. There are several rest stops to make it a fun ride for all.
25 Mile Route
The 25 mile route is also fun for families and recreational riders. This route is quite flat and passes by the Lake Waco Dam and the peaceful surrounding countryside.
Head out Martin Luther King toward the Waco Airport. Loop around on Flat Rock and Yankie before you head back. Ride through Cameron Park as you head toward the finish line.
52 Mile Route
The 52 mile route is relatively flat with a few challenging hills thrown in to keep you from getting bored!
Our most popular route takes you all around the city of Waco and surrounding areas. The first few miles are the same as the 25 mile route. Then you head toward China Spring on back roads then head back around to Speegleville, then up Old Lorena Road. Then head towards Hewitt, out to Robinson and back to Waco on University Parks. Get a glimpse of the new Baylor Stadium as you ride through the Baylor campus and then on to the finish line.
