Route Distances:10 mile-in town family ride, 19, 36, 55, 78 and 101 mile routes
About the Ride: The Cow Creek Country Classic Bike Ride is the Waxahachie Rotary Club’s major annual fund raising event. Each year’s ride is produced and presented by Rotary volunteers, students, Boy Scouts, and other civic volunteers from throughout Waxahachie and the surrounding communities. There are no paid employees.
Each year’s “Rider’s Dollars” are deeply appreciated and extremely important to Waxahachie Rotary and the community as a whole. We work quite hard to see that those dollars are well invested in improving the quality of life in the Waxahachie community. Over the past 25 years, your ride dollars have enabled the Waxahachie Rotary Club to:
Waxahachie Senior Center
Waxahachie Interact Club(s)
Our ride is not a race, and will consist of 10, 19, 36, 55, 78 and 101 mile tours on a well marked course.
The 10 mile is a leisurely in-town tour of historic Waxahachie, with unique “Gingerbread Homes” and “National Historical Register Landmarks”, such as the octagon-shaped Chautauqua Auditorium in Getzendaner Park and the Ellis County Courthouse. All ages can participate with confidence of a safe ride. This year’s in-town ride will also utilize part of the new Hike ’n Bike Trail that Waxahachie has opened. The ride will also go through the downtown area, and if you want you may stop and eat or shop in the many antiques and arts & crafts shops around the square. This is an ideal ride for beginners, children and families seeking a fun morning together.
The 19, 36, and 55 mile tours go through some very beautiful, scenic parts of Ellis County.
The 78 and 101 mile tours are excellent rides through the beautiful countryside of Southwest and Southern Ellis County and parts of Johnson, Hill and Navarro Counties.
While most of the roadways are fairly flat, the longer routes do have some challenging hills.
All courses other than the Waxahachie City 10 mile are on paved rural state and farm roads, most of which have no shoulder. FOR YOUR SAFETY YOU ARE STRONGLY URGED TO RIDE SINGLE FILE IF AT ALL POSSIBLE TO ALLOW AUTOMOBILE TRAFFIC TO PASS. The finish takes you through Historic Downtown Waxahachie and into the back of the High School which will have less traffic.
Note: All routes subject to last minute changes due to weather conditions or construction issues.
