About the Ride
The 24th Annual Collin Classic Bike Rally is set to roll on Saturday, June 13th, in McKinney, Tex. Catering to the serious cyclist, the weekend rider, and family riders, there is something for every level of interest at the Collin Classic.
Starting and finishing at McKinney North High School (ride start is 8 am), this year’s rally offers open-road routes from 21 to 63 miles in length. Back this year is the popular Family Ride. Routes are designed to maximize rider experience taking into account traffic congestion and chip-seal.
Throughout each route, riders will enjoy fully-stocked rest stops and a variety of cyclist support services including law enforcement, professional medical services, SAG vehicles, roving bike mechanics, and ride guides.
Proceeds from the event will benefit City House – a nonprofit agency in Collin County that has been protecting and sheltering abused and homeless youth since 1988.
The Medical Reserve Corps (MRC) of Collin County provides a great deal of support for the Collin Classic. The mission of the organization is to improve the health and safety of communities across the country by organizing and utilizing public health, medical and other volunteers. We are proud to have MRC providing support at Riders Village throughout the course. This includes:
· Medical staff at Riders Village and every Rest Stop.
· HAM operators on the course connected to a Mobile Incident Command Post ensuring we can provide our riders with a safe ride and fast assistance when needed.
“This is the 24th year for the Collin Classic and we are anticipating the best ride we have ever had,” said Collin Classic Ride Director Teresa Keenan. “We are building upon the tradition of this great event with added amenities that are focused on the riders’ overall experience. Our goal is to be one of the top rides in North Texas and we are very excited about where we are headed.”

The Andrea-Mennen Family Foundation (TAFF) is presenting partner of the 2015 Collin Classic, a longtime supporter of both the ride and its nonprofit beneficiary – City House.
“The Andrea-Mennen Family Foundation is proud to be associated with City House and their fantastic efforts to help homeless, abused and neglected children in Collin County,” said Rudy Andrea, president of TAFF. “Children are our most valuable resource and we need to protect them. City House has been helping kids for over 26 years and they really make an impact on our community. Their efforts mirror what our foundation is all about – kids and family.”
