One of the best quotes of any Ride for Reading delivery was spoken yesterday in El Paso, TX! Congressman Beto O'Rourke said, "I always wanted to be a rock star, because I wanted to come into a stadium and hear the crowds cranked up...people cheering with pom poms and signs...and today when I rode my bike here, I finally felt like a rock star!" That's right cyclist....Ride for Reading can make you feel like a rock star!"

Fort Davis: Meet at 11 am at the Fort Davis Chamber of Commerce Office. We'll ride as a group to the Elementary School, where the students will be able to pick out books to take home as their very own!
Terlingua: Meet at 11 am at Big Bend Resorts and Adventures. We'll ride as a group to the Elementary School, where the students will be able to ALSO pick out books to take home as their very own!
Who is making this happen?
Our non-profit Texas Mountain Trail is happy to coordinate these events, but we've had LOTS of help from wonderful people who've helped make this opportunity available to our Far West Texas schools.
