Berry Springs to Bartlett and Back

Rides suitable for cyclists who are new to the sport (or who have not been on a bike for some years), family-friendly rides or any riders that feel a need for some mentoring. Note: please note that minors under the age of 16 cannot participate in rides unless accompanied by a parent or guardian. Families with children should, in any event, confirm with the ride leader ahead of time that the ride will be suitable for their needs.

Targeted towards riders who have a few years in the saddle, who have developed some riding confidence and fitness and feel ready to move to the next level. Could attract more experienced riders who are looking for a relaxed or less aggressive ride.

Limited to experienced riders with superior bike handling skills and who are comfortable with a fast pace (probably including single and/or double pace-line riding) and/or hilly terrain, and the possibility of heavily trafficked roads. Advanced rides are less likely to be "no-drop" unless identified as such.

Let's beat the heat. Ride start from Berry Spings Park outside of Georgetown. A slightly modified verision with a trek up Gooseneck road. Meet in the back, past the entrance to the campground near the pavillions and restrooms.   Route passes through greater Walburg, New Corn Hill and downtown Schwertner on our way to Bartlett.  We'll pass by the Barlett State Jail on our way through the Opossum Creek watershed and back to Berry Springs. This is a flat route with quiet roads and a lot of sky.  It includes some classic Texas chip seal, so air your tires accordingly.      

Helmets required. Safety briefing at 6:55 AM, the ride departs at 7:00AM. Public rest rooms and parking is available near the pavilions, in the back past the campground.
