Austin Course Information
Riverside Drive will re-open promptly at 5:00pm per the direction of the City of Austin. At 4:30pm the course will close and the finish line area will start to be broken down.
Due to the varying difficulty of the Team LIVESTRONG Challenge courses, and in an effort maintain a high safety standard, the Team LIVESTRONG Challenge Ride support (Mechanical, Support and Gear [SAG], Medical and Course Signage) will end 8.5 hours after starting (4 p.m. in Austin). If you are still on course after 7.5 hours and are not on pace to finish in 8.5 hours, you will politely be asked by our staff to allow a SAG vehicle to take you to a safe location near the finish line where you will be allowed to ride through the finish and enjoy the Post-Event Party activities.
