ATTENTION----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 riding with over the last few years! We MAY even ... morehave 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.

NOTE I: Helmuts are required on all Bike Austin rides.

NOTE II: I don't have maps, but Q-sheets will be available and the RidewithGPS version is attached for electronic downloading.

NOTE III: Please arrive with you and your bike ready to ride 70 miles for a 6:50 AM ride start meeting for a PROMPT roll-out at 7:00 AM.

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.

Helmets are mandatory on all my rides. In case of inclement weather, please check the website early on the morning of the ride.

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.

Turn left (north) on FM 973 for approx. 1.8 miles, the Good Luck Grill is on the right (east). Please use the parking lot area closest to the road---away from the restaurant.
