Central Texas has a comprehensive bicycle network enabling people in the region to comfortably, safely and efficiently use a bike for transportation and recreation. Bicycling supports the community as a whole by: increasing roadway capacity and user mobility; strengthening the economy and household affordability; improving the environment; and promoting an active, healthy lifestyle.

Our Mission
Bike Austin improves quality of life for all of Austin and Central Texas by growing bicycling as a form of transportation, exercise, and recreation.

Through our work, we pledge to…

Respect each other and enjoy the activities we do together.
Partner and collaborate with public servants, government agencies, and members to accomplish our shared goals.
Strive to engage diverse populations, particularly across lines of gender, age, income, race, ethnicity, and capability.

Group Rides
7:00 AM Start Time
NOTE the early starting time----we have entered the "beat-the-heat" mode now!!! This also gets us off of FM 1869 as early as possible---hopefully before most of the heavy traffic!! ... moreA new/old country ride from Liberty Hill.

The 65 mile route will be be at a "Social B" paced group, but may also have a faster " A or A-" group going (hammering?) off the front. This is a variation of the popular Milmor's Man ride from Liberty Hill. These routes are modified from an earlier riding route, while maintaining a very scenic ride, to: a) minimize the riding time on FM 1869 & b) do the CR 284 "rollers" early in the ride instead of at the end of the ride.

After riding west on FM 1869 for 1.5 miles, we'll be on some scenic quiet country roads going west through Oatmeal on our way to Burnet or Bertram.
We return east back through Oatmeal making an elongated figure 8. We'll stay north of FM 1869 on the way home doing a slightly flatter ride than the numerous "rollers" south on CR 284 (we ride those rollers on the way out to Oatmeal). The store stop is in Burnet at 37 miles. Total climbing is 2550 ft. according to RIDEwithGPS.

NOTE I: Helmets are required on ALL bike Austin rides.

NOTE II: I don't have maps, but Q-Sheets (for both rides) will be provided and the RIDEwithGPS versions are attached for electronic downloading.

NOTE III: Please arrive with you & your bike ready to ride 65 miles (we only have one (1) store stop at 37 miles) in time for a 6:55 AM ride start meeting so we can be rolling PROMPTLY at 7:00 AM. Bring plenty of drink & food for the ride distance.

NOTE IV: Start Location is the Liberty Hill Elemenmtary School on Loop 332. (No restroom facilities at ride start).

Lunch after the ride, for those interested (all are invited), at the Liberty Hill Corner Market/Deli.

Be sure and check this posting early ride morning for any possible weather cancellation.

Ride the scenic hills of beautiful west Austin: beautiful old homes, generally shady, and lots of (usually) short hills. This can be as hard as you want to make it, or it can be moderate. ... moreI won't say easy, because some of these are tough just to keep the bike moving. But a great respite from the heat, and frequent regroup points. Quite a few route options, so we can vary it as we choose. (Iced?) coffee at Mozart's afterwards.

TERRAIN: Hilly/very hilly with about 2800 ft. of climbing. I would consider at least two climbs as "non trivial".

OTHER:

· Helmets are mandatory on all my rides.

· Ride will be “no drop” but only assuming riders have properly matched themselves to the ride description, average speed and terrain.

· It is essential that you take a minimum of two large water bottles and/or Camelbac. There are no convenience stores per se. Harry's On the Loop (beer/burgers) is still open (?); the hours are a little unpredictable. The Willow City Volunteer Fire dept. is still there and has a water faucet (bring extra Scratch powder or whatever).

· This ride is relatively remote to major mechanicals will be a serious pain in the you-know-what. Please make sure your bike is in good mechanical condition and that you have spare tubes, tools etc.

· The Loop road is public but the shoulders/verges are not. It is essential that you honor the rights of the private landholders.

· Please arrive early enough to prepare yourself + bike, have the 5-minute safety briefing to be ready for an on-time departure.

· In case of inclement weather, check this web site and/or my emails early on the morning of the ride.

I also have a Google Group (Austin and Central Texas Cycling) in which we discuss upcoming rides and miscellaneous cycling stuff. Email me (address above) if interested in joining – you can always unsubscribe yourself if you later decide you have no interest.

Wheels & Heels for Meals is one of the Food Pantry’s largest fundraising events. It began in 2009 and grows every year. Our 88-mile ride begins at the Food Pantry, in the town ... moreof Fort Davis, TX, and meanders along beautiful, scenic roads to the town of Valentine and then back. It is designed for everyone from the occasional rider to the experienced cyclist. No one is required to ride the entire 88 miles and it is not a race. Along the way, there are two pit stops with food, shade, portable toilets and wet towels. Then in Valentine, lunch is served with music and surprises. One year we even had an apple bobbing contest!

In 2013, we introduced a new, shorter, fun route called the Princess Tour. And at only 17 miles of mostly downhill, scenic roadways and chock full of pampering extras, you will know why it was named as such. On the Princess Tour, you are treated like royalty. First, you are whisked to the top of the mountain starting point (Bloys Camp) while enjoying scrumptious pastries, orange juice and espresso. At the finish your paparazzi awaits to rejoice with you in your success!

And also, beginning in 2014, the Wheels For Meals event became the Wheels & Heels For Meals. We added a new walking route for those that would like to participate in the fundraising and sights but aren’t comfortable biking the longer distances. The walk portion entails a 1, 2, 4 or 8 mile course.
