Road, Social, No Drop
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.

A nice Liberty Hill ride for a fun ride.  We start at Liberty Hill Elemetary School.
I hope for this to be a nice social ride--  
We'll be pedaling on some familiar roads, but also on some new roads for some of us.  I have ridden this route myself; we will have mostly quiet Central Texas roads.
We climb just under 1950 ft. on this route--per RIDEwithGPS.  
We'll have a store stop at 34 miles in Bertram.

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

NOTE II: I do have maps & Q-sheets.  The RIDEwithGPS version is attached below for electronic downloading.

Starting Point: Liberty Hill Elementary School---see map/address attached below. There are NO Rest room facilities at the start location.

Please arrive, with you and your equipment ready to ride 52 miles, in time to sign-in prior to the starters meeting at 7:45 AM; for a prompt roll-out at 8:00 AM. 
This is a hosted "B" pace ride. If you are not familiar with our ride categories, please check these two sites to ensure you can match yourself to the ride:

After the ride: Lunch at the Liberty Hill Corner Market Deli.  All are invited.

Check this posting the ride day morning in case of a weather cancellation.

We envision Central Texas as a place where everyone recognizes and embraces the benefits of cycling, whether they ride or not, and where cycling is a common aspect of daily life for ... moreeveryone. 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.

Guiding Principles
We believe that…

Bicycling should be safe and accessible.
Bicycling positively transforms our community.
Bicycling benefits all people, whether they bicycle or not.
Bicycling is an integral part of a multi-modal transportation system. 

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.
Be conscious of social equity issues in transportation
Support all people who bicycle, whether new to bicycling or experienced.
Ensure tangible and measurable progress.
Be strategic with our political capital and challenge the status quo.
