Sunday Mellow 100K

Type
Road
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
Come join our merry band of bikers on our new Sunday Mellow Ride!

We may be covering the 62 miles of southwest Austin, better known as the Saturday 100K loop.
Or we'll do something else. Depends mostly on wind direction and group whim.

Here is a map:

Our average pace will be 18-20mph.
This is NOT a recovery ride! It is harder and 20mi longer than the Saturday MOTR ride. It is the same distance and includes an additional water stop, when compared to the Saturday 100K. It is a challenge meant to prepare riders for the Saturday 100K.

If you would like a pleasant recovery spin, check out the Sunday Violet Crown ride that leaves from Mellow Johnny's at 8:15am

Our passion is serving the cycling community. Our mission is introducing people to the joy of the bike. Mellow Johnny's opened in 2008 in the heart of downtown Austin, in an historic ... morewarehouse building at 400 Nueces Street.

Beyond the retail box, the aim of Mellow Johnny's is to be a destination for cycling and social gathering. The urban setting of the Austin location is based on our commitment to cycling as transportation and utility, as well as fun and fitness.

To serve the bike community is our job, but to introduce people to the joy of the bike our mission.

Today we did the Dam Loop since it was blowing from the north. Easier on the way back. Checked out Mansfield Dam on the way. Flood gates are fully open. https://www.strava.com/activities/599668582
