The road that most of the road race loop uses and that entire section of the park is still closed to the public and has been since the floods of 2015. That section of the state park is shut down and if cyclists ignore the signage & barricades to ride their bikes back there they are VERY likely to get a citation from the State Park Police.

BUT… we have arranged permission for a ONE-TIME pre-ride of the road race course.

Sunday, January 22nd from 1:00pm – 5:00pm cyclists will be allowed to pre-ride the race loop.

You must park where we usually have registration & check-in. Just after the park entrance to the left. You are NOT authorized to drive vehicles into the closed section of the park, only bicycles and ONLY during this special pre-ride window.

You WILL still need to adhere to the traffic laws, meaning stopping at the stop signs, while pre-riding especially the crossroad by the park entrance.

I’ll be out there the whole time and the Jesuit team will be out there for a couple of the hours too so get together with your buddies and come on out to pre-ride the race course and the rest of the roads at beautiful, hilly, Cedar Hill State Park.

*Park entrance fee ($7) will apply.
