Wichita Falls loves cyclists!
Downtown Wichita Falls is now even more bike friendly, when visiting downtown you now have a place to park your ride. The first of many sculptural steel bicycle racks was installed at the corner of 8th Street and Scott Avenue near the Highlander Public House. The bike-shaped rack featured the Downtown Wichita Falls Development logo in one wheel and the slogan, “You’re Invited Too,” in the other. Three more similar racks soon followed featuring designs focusing on Midwestern State University, Sheppard Air Force Base and the Hotter’N Hell Hundred.

Have you heard about Wichita Falls Famous Hotter’N Hell Hundred Bike Ride? The event grew out of efforts to find a special way for Wichita Falls to celebrate its 1982 centennial. The Wichita Falls Bicycle Club proposed a bicycle ride – 100 miles in 100-degree heat to celebrate 100 years, coining the name: Hotter’N Hell Hundred. The rest is history. For more information or to participate, visit their website at www.hh100.org.
If you want to enjoy over 18 miles on our concrete Circle Trail, there are access points all throughout the city. Click here http://www.wichitafallstx.gov/864/Maps for a complete trail system map.
The gazebo pictured above has a bike repair/tire pump station. There are several of these located on the Circle Trail.
