Conquer The Coast








Welcome Riders

Conquer the Coast in Corpus Christi, Texas

September 16 | 7:00 a.m. | Whataburger Field

Conquer the Coast Bike Ride packs so much into one ride that no other cycling event quite compares. The ride begins in the heart of Corpus Christi at Whataburger Field and proceeds with options of 66, 21, and 10-mile routes for cyclists of all ages and skills.

66-Mile: A challenge for even the most seasoned cyclist, this is the course that separates the joy riders from the die-hards. Once you make your way to the top of the Harbor Bridge you’ll realize this is no ordinary ride.  With the Corpus Christi ship channel below, and the Texas State Aquarium and USS Lexington off to your right, you are at the start of an amazing ride that will take you through six different coastal communities.  After you get off the Port Aransas ferry you’ll ride the “Toughest 18 Miles in Texas” down the length of Mustang Island. Next it’s over the JFK Causeway, and then over to beautiful Ocean Drive, where you’ll feel the wind at your back for the final ten miles as you make your way back past the Corpus Christi Marina to Whataburger Field.

21-Mile: The 21-mile course is for those looking to push themselves a little. This ride will take you the entire length of Ocean Drive past the Island University of Texas A&M University-Corpus Christi and near the gates of Naval Air Station Corpus Christi. It’s perfect for intermediate-level riders using comfort bikes, hybrids or mountain bikes.

10-Mile: The 10-mile course is a leisurely ride down Ocean Drive. Beautiful homes on one side and scenic views of the bay on the other side. It’s perfect for less experienced riders, younger riders and families. It’s long enough to push yourself without overdoing it.
