Organizers had to cancel the first day of the annual event scheduled on April 18 because of bad weather. The Bechtel Challenge Route that winds through the rolling terrain of Bastrop and Buescher State Parks was not used.

The Texas Parks and Wildlife Department confirmed that Bastrop and Buescher State Parks received 4 inches of rain in recent days. State Parks had significant standing water Park Road 1C is closed due to high, flowing water at Alum Creek. These roads were not conducive for a safe route.

The ride started at the Fayette County Courthouse in La Grange, Texas and finished in Austin.
