ATTENTION----Delaying this ride for better recovery timing!---OK-OK, it is time for a nice group ride to celebrate the birthday's of two (2) "old geezers" you may have done a little ... moreriding with over the last few years! We MAY even have some cake to share with all after the ride! It should be an nice, easy "social" ride; as we don't want to leave the "old geezers" in the dust!!

A quiet, (mostly country roads) ride thru northeast Travis, southeast Williamson, & northwest Bastrop Counties. We'll pedal by Taylor's Murphy Park & Lake, thru "bustling" Thrall, by the historic Lawrence Chapel, by the scenic 8 Point Ranch (home to many exotic animals), by the Dream Time Animal Sanctuary, and finally pedal home by the quiet New Sweden Lutheran Church Cemetery! We'll be on many quiet country roads for this flat (only 1680 ft. of climbing--per RidewithGPS). We'll have STORE STOPS at 25 miles (the Shell station in Taylor across from Murphy Lake) and at 53 miles (Doc's Country Store at County Line Rd. & US 290).

Note the starting location!! We will start from Richland Hall on Cameron Rd., about half way between Stager Lane and Cele Rd., on the west side of the road, next to the Travis County Fire Dept. Training Center. There is an "outhouse" at the starting location, but to be safe, you may want to bring your own TP!! (see the starting location map below) Be sure and park as far SOUTH (away from the Hall) in the parking lot as possible since there is an "event"at Richland Hall later this morning--Thanks.

NOTE I: Helmuts are required on all Bike Austin rides.

NOTE II: I don't have maps, but Q-sheets will be available and the RidewithGPS version is attached for electronic downloading.

NOTE III: Please arrive with you and your bike ready to ride 70 miles for a 7:20 AM ride start meeting for a PROMPT roll-out at 7:30 AM.
