Our summer ride, El Diablo Poker Dash & Bash, is back and hotter than ever. On Saturday, July 14, we'll head out on one of two poker rides from our Lamar store. This year, you choose your game of poker by choosing your ride distance of roughly 66 or 30 miles. This is a FREE, unsupported, unmarked ride. We've provided some highly-suggested routes, but you can take any route you want to collect your cards. We’ll have free Real Ale beer and other beverages and lunch available for purchase post-ride.

If you're ready to conquer Austin, your game is 5-card stud. You’ll collect cards by riding to the four other shop locations at Bee Cave, Parmer, Research, and Guadalupe to build a 5 card poker hand, starting with the first card from our Lamar store. The ride will end back at Lamar. The winning hand will receive a $250 gift card to Bicycle Sport Shop. Any tie breakers will be decided by pulling names from a hat. The type of hat is TBD.

If you're ready to play but would rather do a shorter ride, then your game is 3-card poker. For this ride, we suggest pedaling from Lamar to Research then to Guadalupe to collect your 3 cards before heading back to Lamar. The 3-card ride winning hand will receive a $100 gift card to Bicycle Sport Shop.

This is a self-supported ride. There will be no route signage or SAG. The stores—Bee Cave, Parmer, Research, and Guadalupe—will serve as rest stops. Bring your own flat repair gear, GPS map, hydration, and whatever else you need to fortify yourself. Bring your phone to call for back-up. Of course, there will be extra supplies available for purchase at all Bicycle Sport Shop locations. Lunch can be purchased on-site at Lamar after the ride.

Though there is no official route, we offer highly suggested routes for both games. The prime reason is safety. We want this to be the best, safest hot ride you've ever done. The other reason to follow our route is the other stores don't open until 9 AM and will not be ready to hand out cards beforehand. So if you book it from Lamar to Guadalupe out of the gate, then el Diablo has led you astray. So please plan your journey with the store's opening times in mind.
