Conquer the Coast
The 10-mile cruise, 25-mile ride and 65-mile ride all start and finish at Whataburger Field. The 65-mile version leads cyclists over the Harbor Bridge – 138 feet high overlooking the Port of Corpus Christi – to Portland, through Ingleside, Aransas Pass and to Port Aransas and on the Port Aransas Ferry where riders may have a chance encounter with a dolphin or two. The route continues through Upper Padre Island – including the “Toughest 18 Miles in Texas” – and then to breathtaking views of Ocean Drive and Corpus Christi Bay and back to Whataburger Field.
The 10-mile cruise and 25-mile ride are just as captivating and rewarding with riders taking off at Whataburger Field riding towards Shoreline down Ocean Drive and back to Whataburger Field.
“Conquer the Coast is a premiere event for all cyclists,” said H-E-B Public Affairs Senior Manager Regina Garcia. “This cruise and ride through the beautiful Coastal Bend area brings families together, builds team spirit among the cyclists and overall benefits those in our community. It’s a wonderful experience for both our Partners and community and H-E-B is proud to be part of this growing tradition.”
Proceeds generated by the 12th Annual Conquer the Coast benefit the Corpus Christi Chamber of Commerce Foundation, which helps develop leaders and entrepreneurs in Corpus Christi, as well as the Texas A&M University-Corpus Christi Islander Athletic Fund and various cycling organizations throughout the Coastal Bend.
