RIDE IS ON !!! Bring your Donkey Treats !!
NOTE: Modified Route Due to Road Construction!! See the NEW attached RIDEwithGPS Route (version II)Attached. We'll be detouring by the "Donkey Farm" to see "Dud" & friends.... more
This is the very nice scenic rural ride from northeast Travis County into southeast Williamson County and then through northwest Bastrop County. We'll do a moderate "B" pace (15-17 MPH) and re-group at all major turns. We'll travel into northwest Bastrop County on some shady country roads and ride by the 8 Point Ranch, home to many exotic animals (Zebra, Antelope, Deer, Buffalo, Elk, etc.). There is a store stop (at 25 miles) in Coupland.

Note I: I do not have maps, but Q-sheets will be provided and the RidewithGPS route map is attached for electronic downloading.

Note II: Helmets are required on all Bike Austin rides.

Please come, with you and your equipment ready to do 55 miles, in time for a 7:15 AM riders meeting so we can roll promptly at 7:30 AM.

We'll start and end at the "Good Luck Grill". It is located at 14605 North FM 973; that is 1.8 miles north of US 290. Go east out of Manor on US 290. Turn left (north) on FM 973 for approx. 1.8 miles, the Good Luck Grill is on the right (east). Please use the parking lot area closest to the road---away from the restaurant. All are invited for conversation and lunch afterwards at the "Grill"---they have a very nice veranda (that's "back porch" in plain talk).

Please check this posting ride day morning for any possible weather cancellation.

Starting a new training system, the 80/20 system: spend 80% of the time at a moderate, fully aerobic pace, 20% VERY hard. This will be a mostly C pace ride with three very hard intervals: ... moretop 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. Warmup will also demo some new techniques for pedalling efficiency.

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.

Ride starts at 8:15 AM at Mellow Johnny's Bike Shop @ 400 Nueces St. Austin, TX. These rides are co-hosted by Mellow Johnny’s and Bike Austin. This no-drop group ride is perfect ... morefor 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.

RIDE IS ON for 7:30!
Ride start at 8 7:30 AM sharp! 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 ... more20 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.
