Level
Novice
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.

Intermediate
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.

Advanced
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.

Description

Meet us for an approximate 26 mile ride on the Leon Creek Trails. The trail head is at the end of Mainland Street just off Bandera Rd across the cul-the-sac from Walmart. This location will allow us to ride south on the trails to the Ingram Trail Head, then back to Mainland, then north to the Valero Trail Head on Loop 1604. The trails are mostly shady with a few small rolling hills. The main trails are paved so any bike will be suitable. Ride Leaders, Vivian, 210-387-5130, for Ray, 210-394-0854, (If weather is questionable, ride may be canceled, text us.)


Helmets are required on all rides

Don't forget your water, energy drinks, snacks, spare tube, and cell phone.

Also don't forget your cables and locks if you plan to join us for lunch.

Guests are always welcome.  No reservations or call ahead  required.  Just show up!       

Please arrive early...at least 15 minutes before posted time to prepare your bike and yourself.  As a courtesy to the other cyclists, we must leave on time...please don't be late!

We have a no-drop policy...which means that at least one cyclist will sweep behind the main group to ensure no one gets lost and all cyclists are able to return to the finish location.




...To lead a ride, contact Vern at 210-275-5637, or vjeys@satx.rr.com

Organization
WELCOME The San Antonio Cycling Club is a recreational road bike club that offers weekday and weekend rides. Our club rides are in San Antonio and the nearby hill country areas. We ... morewelcome cyclists of all skill levels. We are a casual club and our members usually ride at various speeds from 8 to 16 mph. All of our group rides have Ride Leaders, and a sweep or SAG will be available when needed. We never leave anyone behind.

ABOUT US

We created the San Antonio Cycling Club in 2009 because we felt it was time to have a club that provides rides without the need of regulated club leadership...so we eliminated club officers. We also eliminated official club meetings along with the usual rules and regulations, including the membership fees. Yes...no fees at all. We believe that anyone that wants to ride should ride...for free. We want to keep the fun in cycling.

We kept what we feel are the more important aspects of a cycling club, such as a website that includes a ride schedule, maps and ride leaders that believe no one should be left behind.

After each of our rides we welcome everyone, including guests, to join us for lunch where we usually end up discussing cycling. It is from these discussions that we use information to continue to improve SACC and its website.
