Racing and Riding Events Fill Active First April Weekend

THE WOODLANDS, TX, March 25, 2016 – Residents of The Woodlands and Montgomery County will switch from their Saturday, April 2, Muddy Trails Bash running shoes and shorts and don bicycle gear and helmets for the Gran Fondo bicycle rides on Sunday in Montgomery. The busy weekend of fun and physical feats is all sponsored by one Woodlands-based company – The Woodlands Financial Group (TWFG) and its president and CEO, Gordy Bunch.

The TWFG Insurance Services Gran Fondo: Texas TMCO™ is a bicycle ride and race for the whole family to benefit the Medical Center Orchestra and the National Multiple Sclerosis Society. Gordy Bunch says the event is dedicated to providing a great cycling event for all ranges of cycling enthusiasts, from families that want to introduce cycling to their family to those preparing for the BP MS 150. All rides will start and finish at Montgomery High School Stadium on FM-105 in Montgomery, Texas. This year’s ride will offer four distances of 32, 46, 68 and 90 miles. The routes will travel around historic Montgomery, Texas, north through the picturesque Sam Houston National Forest, through Richards, around Anderson then back south to the high school. All routes will be fully supported for food, hydration, mechanical assistance, SAG, EMS, and safety with Ride Marshals and Motorcycle Marshals in attendance. The overall ride will be in the European Gran Fondo style with interval starts based on skill levels and distances.

The 2016 TWFG Muddy Trails Bash events on Saturday take place from three to eight p.m. at Rob Fleming Park in the Village of Creekside Park. Organizers have announced all events will be run “rain or shine.” A crawfish plates and Zydeco music feast follow timed 5K and 10K races for ages 10 and older, Little Muddy Kids one-mile Fun Run for ages 5 and up, and even a 2K Dog Fun Run for the whole family.

TWFG was founded and is headquartered in The Woodlands. It has become one of the largest insurance service agencies in the country and is ranked number one in Personal Lines insurance for the State of Texas.
