100-Mile Course

You will start at the The University of Texas in San Antonio (UTSA). From there you will head to the north west through the rolling hills of Canyon Park up to Cross Mountain. Once there, you'll make your way over to Boerne, then west to Bandera, riding on well-maintained roads that every cyclist loves. After a visit to Bandera, you'll be flying south towards Medina Lake, challenging yourself and your fellow riders as you climb and descend the rolling hills, and get your chance to be the KOM/QOM—all while enjoying the beautiful scenery of the area. From there, you will head through to historic Helotes. Then, your final push is back towards UTSA for a championship finish and your opportunity to wear that yellow jersey.

San Antonio Fit Fest will also present the XPEL criterium race during the FitFest weekend. The XPEL Criterium is the rollercoaster of road racing and is one of the fastest and most fun forms of bike racing. Riders scream around a closed course that is .75 of a mile long for 30 minutes. As a rider, you must have a certain set of skills to navigate a criterium. You must have the ability to corner rapidly and sharply, with as little touching of your fellow riders as possible, holding your line on the road. To claim the best position, you must possess pristine ability to decide to sprint at perfectly timed opportunities in order to make a successful attack. The winner of the race is the first person to cross the finish without having been lapped.
