The Hutto-"Big Rooster"-Figure 8 Loop takes us through the quiet farm/ranch lands of east Williamson County. We'll travel on some quiet, country roads (some are chip seal and a little bumpy---air up your ties accordingly!) doing a moderate "B" paced (15-16 mph) no-drop ride, with re-grouping as needed at the next turn. We'll go east and north out of Hutto, pedaling northwest of Taylor: riding by the "Big Rooster" statue. (Maybe a real Texas Chicken Ranch?) We'll continue west and south into Weir. Then we ride south and east from Weir on our way back to Hutto; completing a large top heavy Figure 8. We'll have a store stop in Weir at 29 miles.

Join us for a self-contained biking / camping trip from Liberty Hill along quiet country roads to Inks Lake State Park. Self-contained bike touring uses a rack and panniers (or trailer) ... moreto haul everything you need for the journey on your bike. On this trip we'll relax the rules a bit, having a volunteer SAG driver (not organized by Bike Austin), so that carrying your own luggage is not required.

Expect to ride about 50 miles each day on some hilly terrain, with a group pace averaging 12 mph. Route sheets will be provided for those who wish to ride faster or slower. We'll stop for Saturday lunch in a cafe along the way, and set up camp in the afternoon, taking a stroll along the lake before fixing dinner. After a hearty breakfast we'll head back on Sunday, stopping along the way for lunch.

Chip in $20 per person to cover camping, Sat dinner and Sun breakfast. Additional funds are needed to buy your own lunches and snacks along the route, and contribute to the SAG driver's expenses. Please email leader ( nseldon@ix.netcom.com ) to get more info and reserve your spot.

Riders must wear a helmet, obey all traffic laws, and carry equipment to change a flat tire. Recommended to wear bright color clothing and carry cell phone. For camping, bring tent, sleeping bag & pad, raingear, flashlight, change of clothes, towel, toothbrush etc, and eating utensils.

Exact start location in Liberty Hill will be provided. If high chance of bad weather is predicted, the trip will be cancelled. Event is co-sponsored with Austin Sierra Club. Leaders: Niles Seldon, Diane and Mike Nunez.

SATURDAY October 15, 2016 - Ride leader: Bo Lora In 2012 Bicycling Magazine published "The Best Bike Ride in Every State". Now is your opportunity to do the "Best Bike Ride in Texas", ... moreThe Willow City Loop. The wildflower season is over so the traffic should be quite manageable. We will be doing the famous loop clockwise where we end up in Fredericksburg at mile 36. At mile 20 the Willow City Volunteer Fire Department has a water hose we can use to refill bottles. The route is almost 56 miles and 2700ft of elevation. This is a no-drop ride, that means we will regroup at major intersections and after hill climbs, specially at Willow City mile 20.

NOTES:

Helmets are required on all Bike Austin rides.

Q-sheets for the planned route are downloadable from the Ride with GPS

Just so you know, we will have to negotiate about over dozen cattle guards.

New-Fall Start Time is 9:00 AM! A D-pace ride (roughly 11 to 14 mph) on The Southern Walnut Creek Trail from the trailhead at Govalle Park up to the Abrupt End at Lindell Lane just ... morenorth of Decker Lake. Round trip is about 20 miles.

The trail is paved for the entire distance, with a 1/2 mile hill on the outbound. We'll regroup periodically on the outbound and at the Abrupt End. The return is mostly downhill.

The trail is two-way and narrows down in spots. Single-file riding is recommended.
There are two significant road intersections that require caution to cross.

A map of the park's location is at http://austinparks.org/parks/govalle-park/

Bring water, a snack, a spare bicycle tire tube, and tools to fix a flat. Riders will sign a liability waiver at the ride start and must wear a helmet.

There are no restrooms on the trail itself. There are restrooms at Govalle Park and at the Austin Tennis Center, about 1/3 mile off the trail.

(Optional) Meet after the ride for coffee / brunch at Sa-Ten cafe, 916 Springdale Rd. It is within easy cycling distance of Govalle Park.

DESCRIPTION: A half-century ride which will start off with Bo Lora's century ride but at a relaxed pace. This route goes the first 27 miles on the same roads as the century riders before we separate. We'll be in eastern Williamson County on some quiet farm/ranch roads and will cross the scenic Granger Dam. Although they roads will be quiet; some are "vintage" chip seal and a little bumpy --- air up your ties accordingly! There are two optional store stops: in Circleville at 15 miles & in Granger (the Food Mart) at 35 miles. Total climbing is about 1300 ft.

AVERAGE SPEED: 14 - 16 mph. A guide only; actual pace depends on the group and to maintain this average, there will probably be some faster stretches.

TERRAIN: Flat to rolling.

RIDER LEVEL: Experienced, self-confident riders who are comfortable and very safe in a group riding situation which could include pace-line riding, hilly terrain and exposure to urban traffic.

This is a very nice urban ride that gets into the hills to the west. A few challenging climbs but we will always regroup at the top of each. The views over the Hill Country and the Downtown from City Park Road make them worthwhile. Some roads with moderate traffic. Join us afterwards for a coffee or a sandwich at the Café.
