2018 Routes

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.

We regret that after almost 30 years, we will not be able to offer the 105 mile supported route this year. The route continues to have challenges every year that tax our volunteers, from road construction to ice to traffic control.
You are welcome to ride last year’s course and take advantage of the stations and support on the other courses, but please be aware the finish line will close at 2:00 p.m. and any time you are outside of our published routes you will be on your own for water, directions ,and 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.

27 Mile Route

The 27 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 27 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.

69 Mile route

The 69 mile route follows more of the 105 mile route and takes in some great rural roads.

You will head to Crawford after the 3rd rest stop. Enjoy the scenery and then end up back with the 52 mile route in Speegleville.

2018 105 Mile Route

Unsupported for the portion of the route that does not coincide with the other routes.

This route covers picturesque countryside on rural roads in McLennan and Bosque counties. Although relatively flat, there are some challenging hills to keep your heart pumping.

We regret that after almost 30 years, we will not be able to offer the 105 mile supported route this year. The route continues to have challenges every year that tax our volunteers, from road construction to ice to traffic control.

The 105 mile route takes you from Crawford, out to Oglesby, through some private lands and beautiful countryside. A few little hills to keep it interesting. You will ride very close to Mother Neff State Park and then head back toward McGregor. You might hear some rumbling from rocket engines tests at SpaceX. Wind your way through more back roads till you join the 52 and 69 mile routes going up Old Lorena Road. Go through Hewitt, Robinson and then head back to downtown Waco where you can fill your helmet with candy.
