Thursday Teardown

Type
Road, No Drop
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

The Tuesday Teardown is now the Thursday Teardown!

Expect 25-30 miles of punchy hills ride leaving from Cycleast every week at 6PM. This is a challenging, pulse-quickening, heavy-breathing, no-drop hill ride. Open to all who want to challenge themselves, the ride will tackle some of the steeper hills of Westlake Hills/West Austin with regroups after any of the tough climbs. Depending on ride size, the ride will split into two groups at ride leader's discretion. 

Make sure to bring lights, flat repair gear, and enough water for two hours of solid climbs and chill vibes. The average pace is usually around 12mph (factoring in climbs) but occasional sprint segments on the way back will get a little faster.
