ATTENTION----Delaying this ride for better recovery timing!---OK-OK, it is time for a nice group ride to celebrate the birthday's of two (2) "old geezers" you may have done a little ... moreriding with over the last few years! We MAY even have some cake to share with all after the ride! It should be an nice, easy "social" ride; as we don't want to leave the "old geezers" in the dust!!

A quiet, (mostly country roads) ride thru northeast Travis, southeast Williamson, & northwest Bastrop Counties. We'll pedal by Taylor's Murphy Park & Lake, thru "bustling" Thrall, by the historic Lawrence Chapel, by the scenic 8 Point Ranch (home to many exotic animals), by the Dream Time Animal Sanctuary, and finally pedal home by the quiet New Sweden Lutheran Church Cemetery! We'll be on many quiet country roads for this flat (only 1680 ft. of climbing--per RidewithGPS). We'll have STORE STOPS at 25 miles (the Shell station in Taylor across from Murphy Lake) and at 53 miles (Doc's Country Store at County Line Rd. & US 290).

Note the starting location!! We will start from Richland Hall on Cameron Rd., about half way between Stager Lane and Cele Rd., on the west side of the road, next to the Travis County Fire Dept. Training Center. There is an "outhouse" at the starting location, but to be safe, you may want to bring your own TP!! (see the starting location map below) Be sure and park as far SOUTH (away from the Hall) in the parking lot as possible since there is an "event"at Richland Hall later this morning--Thanks.

A truly fine ride from Wimberley that takes us through Fischer (with its 1890s dance hall) towards Canyon Lake. The route crosses the continental divide ... well, sort of .... we do ... morecross from the Blanco River valley to the Guadaloupe valley. The ride is named after the old Wimberley Hillaceous that used to go to Luckenbach.

There is a new store stop on FM-306 which does require single file. Be very cautious of any low water crossings given the recent heavy rainfall.

Meet at the Scudder Primary School in Wimberley, about 0.25 mile south of FM 2325 on Green Acres Road. (Green Acres road is at the first, and only stop-light west of RR 12 on FM 2325).

Maybe lunch at the Leaning Pear afterwards? <a href="http://www.leaningpear.com/" >Leaning Pear</a>

Please arrive early enough to prepare yourself + bike, have the 5-minute safety briefing and then be ready for an on-time departure. If you arrive after the start time, you might find an empty parking lot.

This is a 51 mile hosted "B" ride; no-drop, assuming riders are appropriately matched to the ride description. Note that to maintain the stated 15 - 17 mph average, there will probably be some 20+ mph stretches.

Some serious West Austin hills. Meet at Great Hills Starbucks and be ready to roll by 7:00 am sharp. We'll ride down 360 and do Hillbilly Lane. Back to Westlake Dr. and on to Toro ... moreCanyon. We'll scale The High Road and then Terrace Mountain. Out Bee Cave Road to Marly Way, Cuernavaca and River Hills. These are long and serious climbs in the 10-20% range. At least the scenery is fantastic, from Lake Austin to the hills along 360. After the suffering, it's a fairly routine cruise out Bee Cave Road and back then up 360 (with tailwind) to Starbucks. We'll plan two stops, as needed, at Chevron on Bee Cave (mile 20) and Shell on Bee Cave (mile 37).

This is a VERY tough ride with total distance of 50 miles and elevation gain in the 4,000 ft range. Please come prepared for a tough hot day in the saddle. All of the major roads have wide shoulders and good pavement, but there will be traffic whizzing by at highway speeds. The average pace will be in the 14-16 mph range.

Coffee at Starbucks afterwards for those interested.

Be sure to check this post on ride day to confirm status.
Helmets are required on all Bike Austin rides.

A slightly different sufferfest here in the Hill Country, starting & ending at the Great Hills Starbucks near the Arboretum. Beauford, Jester, Smokey Valley, Ladera Norte, and ... morethen all kinds of crazy ways to ascend Cat Mountain. You don't have to be insane to tackle this route, but it sure helps.

We'll cover 24 miles in the neighborhoods of Great Hills & Spicewood with a total ascent of about 2500 feet, and be sipping coffee around 915am.

There are some substantial grades of up to 20%, so come prepared to climb. What a great way to ruin a perfectly good Thursday morning!
