Bessies Creek 24

The next Bessies Creek race series will be April 1-3, 2021 in Brookshire, Texas.


We want everyone to know that if the virus is still an issue at that time we will take every precaution to keep all racers and supporters safe. Bessies is a non-drafting event so separation between racers will not be a problem. We will make every effort to follow CDC guidelines to make Bessies a safe and secure racing environment.


We do recommend that all who plan to ride and their supporters take advantage of getting the vaccine so they and others will be protected. All race volunteers will have received  the vaccine.

The races are run over a 13.8 mile road loop, take a look at the 'race route' tab for the course.

The Bessies Creek loop is the flatest and fastest road race course in the country.
