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.

Brisk pace ride, with regular regroup points, and a few hot spot" sprint points: Akins High school hilltop, Creedmoor run-in on SR1327, and the return on Old Lockhart Rd to Slaughter ... moreLane intersection. No drop; we'll regroup after stoplights or anywhere the group can get split, and after each hot spot; and refuel at the Creedmoor Valero station.

Because of the in-town stretches, this ride averages about 15. That's the average speed your computer will show after the ride, with stoplights, turns, hills, etc. But to average 15 you need to ride 16-18 most of the time on the flats, so please come expecting that.

Please be sure to arrive 10 minutes early for rider's meeting and to meet newcomers. If you arrive at 8:01 you may find an empty parking lot.

Start Location: meet (and park) at the back of the uphill parking lot across Lake Austin Blvd. from Mozart’s Coffee Roasters http://www.mozartscoffee.com/austin_coffee_location_hours.php Look for the old boat on your left up the hill; we're near there.

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!

IT'S THAT TIME OF THE MONTH-----This looks like one of the better weather days left in August---SOOOOOO!! Come out and ride to test your stamina/endurance as you help (we'd like to ... morethink he needs our help!) Mark Perkins complete his 80th consecutive month of doing a century ride!! Starting this ride VERY early to try and "beat-the-heat"---You'll need front & rear LIGHTS on your bike for this early start!!!!

Come get a good workout and get out in the fresh air---as you ride a Century (100 miles) from Lake Pflugerville. A no-drop ride (promise--we'll always re-group as we really want to stay together!) over the flat rolling farm/ranch land of northeast Travis, northwest Bastrop, and east Williamson Counties. You'll head out east to Elgin; then go north and further east, riding by the Lawrence Chapel, to Thrall (lunch?). Continuing north you'll cross the scenic Granger Dam. Then you'll go west into Granger. Riding south and west from Granger you'll cross Texas 95 at Circleville (north of Taylor), before turning south, going back to Lake Pflugerville, to get the century distance. The total climbing: under 2700 ft. We'll do a nice "B" (15-17) pace to work up our mileage base.

We'll have a minimum of 3 store stops (more if needed): at 22, 51, & 78 miles.

Please come with you (bring plenty to eat/drink) and your bike ready (with lights) to ride 101 miles, in time for sign-in and to participate in a 6:50 AM riders' meeting so we can roll promptly at 7:00 AM. We will be rolling from the start PROMPTLY at 7:00 AM for the benefit of this long long ride.

NOTE I: I'm also posting a "sister" half-century (50 mile) ride--The Lake Pflugerville Half Century--(CCW)---to start out and ride the first 26 miles with those riding this century.

NOTE II: I don't have maps of this course, but Q-sheets (for the CCW century) will be available and the RideWithGPS version of the course is attached for electronic downloading.

NOTE III: Helmets are required on all Bike Austin rides.

NOTE IV: We'll be riding on some "vintage" Travis, Williamson, & Bastrop County chip-seal roads----inflate your tires accordingly!!
