Description
We'll start from Fritz Park in Hutto---on the corner of Live Oak St. & Park Ave. On the east side of Hutto, north of US 79. See the start location map below---("click" on the ride title to "open up" the start location map & address).

A 58 mile route at a proposed "B" social pace -- (14-16 MPH ave.)
This route takes us through the quiet farm/ranch lands of south Williamson County & northeast Travis County. We'll travel on some quiet, country roads (some are chip seal and a little bumpy---air up your ties accordingly!) for a no-drop ride, with re-grouping as needed at the next turn. We'll go east out of Hutto, riding just southwest of Taylor: then riding east & south of Coupland to make a quick visit with the Donkeys!! Then we'll ride south on the west side of Elgin and then ride northwest on our way back to Hutto.

We'll have a STORE STOP on the southwest side of Elgin (Doc's Country Store) at 34 miles.
Less than 1435 ft. of climbing per RIDEwithGPS.



NOTE I: Helmets are required on all Bike Austin rides

NOTE II: I do not have maps of this route, but good Q-sheets will be provided and the RIDEwithGPS link is provided here for downloading.

Come with your equipment ready to ride 58 miles, in time to get signed-in and participate in the starter's meeting at 8:15 AM, for a prompt roll-out at 8:30 AM. Hoping for GOOD weather!
