Come join us in this hilly ride to jump start your fabulous Thursday morning before heading to work. We cover hills in Great Hill and Spicewood area navigating mostly through neighbourhood ... morestreets. This is a no-drop ride. However, be prepared to climb.

AVERAGE SPEED: 11 - 13 mph. Don't be fooled with the low speed. This ride is very hilly. We always regroup at the top of the hill.

TERRAIN: Hilly (multiple hills with significant grades)

RIDER LEVEL: Experienced, self-confident riders who are comfortable riding hilly terrain and exposure to some light urban traffic. You can always come and check out first three hills. If you feel this is not for you, you can turn back. First three hills are very close to ride start. If you good with the first three, you can do the rest.

RIDE START ADDRESS: Starbucks @ 9722 Great Hills Trl, Austin, TX 78759

MAP/CUE/RideWithGPS: https://ridewithgps.com/trips/15324628

LUNCH/COFFEE? I will head to work after ride, but you might catch interesting conversation with the rest of the folks at Starbucks.

Weather looks iffy as of today. CHeck after 8 AM Sat.
Mostly C pace ride with ONE (NOTE: ONE) OPTIONAL fast bit on 1327 to the Creedmoor town limit sign. My goal is to stay aerobic for all except this one 3-mile stretch. No drop; we'll ... moreregroup after 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 15-18 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 8:00 ON RIDE DAY IN CASE OF RAIN OR DELAY START FOR COLD.

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.

PLANNED
Ride starts at 9:00AM 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 ... moreto 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.

There is now a Facebook page for this ride: https://www.facebook.com/ScoutARoute/ please like the page and give feedback or suggestions there.

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 preride refreshment, meet at Juan Pelota Café 30 minutes before start time.

We will go down the east side of town to McKinney Falls, then come back on the west. Most of the route is on bike lanes and/or quiet streets, but there is some urban riding. There ... moreare several stretches of rolling hills and/or short moderately steep hills. There are no hills very hard in themselves, but the cumulative effect can be grueling for some riders. The average speed will be 13-15 mph, with perhaps a couple of intervals of sustained 18-25 mph. This is a no drop ride and we will regroup at turns and hilltops as necessary. Please arrive 10 minutes early for ride speech and sign in; we leave at 8:00. Ride route may vary somewhat from the linked map depending upon conditions, participants and ride leader mood ;-). Join us for coffee/breakfast at the Flightpath afterwards. Contact Amy Hufford at amhufford@gmail.com or 512-750-3012 (can receive texts) with questions. Ride will be cancelled in case of rain or wet streets.

Join us on future Sundays for rides of distances between 26-50.

MAYBE--The weather looks Hopefull ------ We haven't done this route for a while; so I've put together this slightly modified version of an "old staple" ride for us to try-----this ... moreis a good Sunday route-----to miss the heavy urban weekday traffic!! I plan for this to be a nice social ride (by our old description; a moderate "B" paced ride, we will regroup at turns as needed).

An urban starting location that will quickly get us into the quiet countryside of northeast Travis Ciounty. We'll actually get to ride on Wall Street!!! We'll be on some familiar quiet country roads as we travel north through Cele and then west and south into Manor on our way back to our start location. We have two (2) possible store stops: at 20 and 37 miles. Only 1675 ft. of climbing (per RIDEwithGPS).

NOTE I: Helmets are required on ALL Bike Austin Rides.

NOTE II: I don't have maps of this veriation, but Q-sheets will be provided and the RIDEwithGPS version is attached for electrionic downloading.

NOTE III: Starting from the corner of Centre Creek Dr. & Centre Park Dr. (See detail start location map attached.----parking on the street & NO restroom facilities are at this start location)

Please arrive, with you and your bike ready to ride 52 miles, in time for a 7:50 AM ride start meeting so we can roll promptly at 8:00 AM.

Please check this site, early ride day morning, for any possible weather cancellation.

Weather looks ok as of today, but please check ride day.
If all goes to plan, we'll have three MS150 newbies using this as a training ride. They'll arrive at 8:30 for a talk about preparing for long rides. Their pace will be quite a bit ... moreslower, as will mine. Anyone wanting to ride our usual pace can just take off - I'm sure you'll have company from among our regulars.
Ride starts in town, but gets out into the country. Store stops in Buda (16 mi), Kyle (27), then return. Coffee and conversation afterwards at Mozart's.
Please be sure to arrive a little early for rider's meeting and to meet newcomers. If you arrive at 9:05 you may find an empty parking lot.

START LOCATION: In the uphill parking lot, across the street from Mozart's. We meet near the old boat.

RIDE IS ON!
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 ... morethe 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 Sa-Ten Cafe at 916 Springdale, Suite 110.

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.
