OTHER:

· Helmets are mandatory on all my rides.

· Ride will be “no drop” but only assuming riders have properly matched themselves to the ride description, average speed and terrain.

· It is essential that you take a minimum of two large water bottles and/or Camelbac. There are no convenience stores per se. Harry's On the Loop (beer/burgers) is still open (?); the hours are a little unpredictable. The Willow City Volunteer Fire dept. is still there and has a water faucet (bring extra Scratch powder or whatever).

· This ride is relatively remote to major mechanicals will be a serious pain in the you-know-what. Please make sure your bike is in good mechanical condition and that you have spare tubes, tools etc.

· The Loop road is public but the shoulders/verges are not. It is essential that you honor the rights of the private landholders.

· Please arrive early enough to prepare yourself + bike, have the 5-minute safety briefing to be ready for an on-time departure.

After a group breakfast we'll head back on Sunday. We can stop at a grocery to resupply Sunday morning.

Chip in $20 per person to cover camping and Sunday breakfast. Funds collected which exceed expenses will be donated to charity. Additional funds are needed to buy your dinner, as well as snacks and lunch along the route, park admission ($6), and to contribute to the SAG driver's expenses. To RSVP, send an email to trip organizer John Lacy lacy@astro.as.utexas.edu . He will interview each participant to make sure the trip is right for them. Co-sponsored by Austin Sierra Club.

Wheels & Heels for Meals is one of the Food Pantry’s largest fundraising events. It began in 2009 and grows every year. Our 88-mile ride begins at the Food Pantry, in the town ... moreof Fort Davis, TX, and meanders along beautiful, scenic roads to the town of Valentine and then back. It is designed for everyone from the occasional rider to the experienced cyclist. No one is required to ride the entire 88 miles and it is not a race. Along the way, there are two pit stops with food, shade, portable toilets and wet towels. Then in Valentine, lunch is served with music and surprises. One year we even had an apple bobbing contest!

In 2013, we introduced a new, shorter, fun route called the Princess Tour. And at only 17 miles of mostly downhill, scenic roadways and chock full of pampering extras, you will know why it was named as such. On the Princess Tour, you are treated like royalty. First, you are whisked to the top of the mountain starting point (Bloys Camp) while enjoying scrumptious pastries, orange juice and espresso. At the finish your paparazzi awaits to rejoice with you in your success!

And also, beginning in 2014, the Wheels For Meals event became the Wheels & Heels For Meals. We added a new walking route for those that would like to participate in the fundraising and sights but aren’t comfortable biking the longer distances. The walk portion entails a 1, 2, 4 or 8 mile course.
