Note the PARKING instructions (for this date) at Richland Hall
Let's ride off some of that Turkey we've just stuffed ouselves with!! It is NOT "Black Friday" for all of us!! This is a very quiet scenic ride thru east Williamson County, starting ... morefrom Richland Hall on Cameron Road.

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, and by the scenic/historic Lawrence Chapel, Cemetary, & log cabin. We'll plan for a quick visit with "Dudley -- the friendly donkey" (& friends) on the way home thru Coupland ---MAYBE bring some "snacks" for the donkeys!! We'll be on many quiet country roads for this flat (only 1702 ft. of climbing--per RidewithGPS). We'll have TWO STORE STOPS: at 25 miles (the Food Market in Thrall) and at 50 miles (Citgo Station in Coupland).

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 (see the ride starting location map below). There is an "outhouse" at the starting location, but it is VERY primitive. Be sure and park at the back (WEST end) of the lot & SOUTH of the big blue trash dumpster as there is another "event" at Richland Hall later in the morning on this date.--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 62 miles for a 7:50 AM ride start meeting for a PROMPT roll-out at 8:00 AM.

LAST MINUTE FRIDAY ADDITION
Burn off yesterday's turkey and all the other bits!! No drop; regroup after stoplights or anywhere the group can get split, and after each hot spot; and refuel at the Creedmoor Valero ... morestation. C pace home again. Coffee and conversation afterwards at Mozart's.

Because of the in-town stretches, this ride agerages 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 15-18 most of the time on the flats, so please come expecting that.

Please be sure to arrive a little early for signup and rider's meeting.

BE SURE TO CHECK THIS SITE AFTER 7:00 ON RIDE DAY IN CASE OF RAIN CANCELLATION.

START LOCATION: meet (and park) at the back of the "uphill" parking lot across Lake Austin Blvd. from the coffee shop. Look for the old boat on your left up the hill; we're near there.

Let's ride: to work off all the Turkey we've consumed these last few days!!!!! We haven't done this route for a while; so I've put together this slightly modified version of an "old ... morestaple" ride for us to try-----this is a good Sunday route-----to miss the heavy urban weekday traffic!! I plan for this to be a nice social ride (by our old description; a moderate "B" paced ride, we will regroup at turns as needed).

An urban starting location that will quickly get us into the quiet countryside of northeast Travis Ciounty. We'll actually get to ride on Wall Street!!! We'll be on some familiar quiet country roads as we travel north through Cele and then west and south into Manor on our way back to our start location. We have two (2) possible store stops: at 24 and 43 miles.

NOTE I: Helmets are required on ALL Bike Austin Rides.

NOTE II: I don't have maps of this veriation, but Q-sheets will be provided and the RIDEwithGPS version is attached for electrionic downloading.

NOTE III: Starting from the corner of Centre Creek Dr. & Centre Park Dr. (See detail start location map attached.----parking on the street & NO restroom facilities are at this start location)

Please arrive, with you and your bike ready to ride 56 miles, in time for a 7:50 AM ride start meeting so we can roll promptly at 8:00 AM.
