Adding a bit of training structure: we'll spend 80% of the time at a moderate, fully aerobic pace, 20% VERY hard (well, some of us will. Weeks of rain, etc, will slow the rest of us ... moredown). This will be a mostly C pace ride with three very hard intervals: top of Azie Morton (formerly R E Lee), 3 mile run into Creedmoor, and 3 mile run to Slaughter on the return. The three hard bits comprise about 20% of the total. No drop; we'll regroup after each fast bit, at stoplights, or anywhere the group can get split, and refuel at the Creedmoor Valero station. C pace home again. Coffee and conversation afterwards at Mozart's.

Because of the in-town stretches, this ride agerages about 15. That's the average speed your computer will show after the ride, with stoplights, turns, hills, etc. But to average 15 you need to ride 17-19 most of the time on the flats, so please come expecting that.

Please be sure to arrive a little early for signup and rider's meeting.

BE SURE TO CHECK THIS SITE AFTER 7:00 ON RIDE DAY IN CASE OF RAIN.

START LOCATION: meet (and park) at the back of the "uphill" parking lot across Lake Austin Blvd. from the coffee shop. Look for the old boat on your left up the hill; we're near there.

A 57 mile route at a proposed "B" social pace -- (14-16 MPH ave.)
This route takes us through the quiet farm/ranch lands of south Williamson County & northeast Travis County. We'll travel on some quiet, country roads (some are chip seal and a little bumpy---air up your ties accordingly!) for a no-drop ride, with re-grouping as needed at the next turn. We'll go east out of Hutto, riding just southwest of Taylor: then riding east & south of Coupland to make a quick visit with the Donkeys!! Then we'll ride south on the west side of Elgin and then ride northwest on our way back to Hutto.

We'll have a STORE STOP on the southwest side of Elgin (Doc's Country Store) at 34 miles.
Less than 1400 ft. of climbing per RIDEwithGPS.

IF ROADS ARE WET OR RAIN IMMINENT, RIDE WILL BE CANCELED. Ride starts at 9 AM at Mellow Johnny's Bike Shop @ 400 Nueces St. Austin, TX.... more

These rides are co-hosted by Mellow Johnny’s and Bike Austin. This no-drop group ride is perfect for the cyclist new to riding or bike commuting, returning to the bike, or just looking for a more casual ride. The routes are designed to help riders navigate the city bike routes and other safe bike commuting options.

To accommodate the number of riders and varying fitness, there are two groups. The first group is designed for those who can average 14-16mph for 20-30 miles with one or two regrouping points. This group follows the same route but is provided with an extended mileage option.

The second group is our traditional Scout-a-route. We average 12mph for distances between 15-25 miles with regrouping points.

Both rides are intended to explore, so leave your heart rate monitor at home, bring some spare dollars for the occasional refreshment stop and enjoy the view.

General ride expectations: helmet, bike in good working condition, spare tire tube, water and nutrition, and no headphone/radios. We encourage you to ride to the shop. If driving, please park in the street.

For pre-ride refreshment, meet at Juan Pelota Café (located inside Mellow Johnny's) 30 minutes before start time.

Join us for a ride that goes west and northwest from the Peddler past RR 620 to Lime Creek Road and back (unless you are going on to Alaska). There is some urban riding, but most of ... morethe ride is in bike lanes or on quiet shady neighborhood streets. This ride is not as hilly as it gets in Austin, but there are several short steep hills that may challenge riders unused to hills. If the streets are wet, we may re-route. This is a no drop ride and we will regroup at corners and hilltops as necessary.

Average speed will be 13-15 mph, but the group will go faster on flat straightaways. This is a no-drop ride and we will regroup on hills and turns as necessary.

Parking is available north of 51st on Duval and on the side streets around Duval. Please don't park in the alley behind the Peddler and Flight Path Coffeehouse.

Please arrive at least 10 minutes early for sign-in and route briefing. We will leave promptly at 8:00

A moderate C-pace ride (roughly 11 to 14 mph) on The Southern Walnut Creek Trail from Govalle Park to the Abrupt End and return. Round trip is about 20 miles. The trail is paved for the entire distance, with a 1/2 mile hill on the outbound. We'll regroup periodically on the outbound, and at the Abrupt End. The return is mostly downhill. And you might even see Lance flashing by.

The trail is two-way and narrows down in spots, with a couple of blind corners. Single-file riding and moderate speed on the turns is recommended!

There are two significant road intersections that require caution to cross.

Optional coffee afterwards at Sai-Ten Cafe, 916 Sprindale Road.

This ride is cross-posted to Bike Austin.

A map of Govalle Park's location is at http://austinparks.org/parks/govalle-park/

Bring water, a snack, a spare bicycle tire tube, and tools to fix a flat. Riders will sign a liability waiver at the ride start and must wear a helmet.

There are no restrooms on the trail itself. There are restrooms at Govalle Park and at the Austin Tennis Center, about 1/3 mile off the trail.
