My rides through the winter are for base miles - ride the miles, but not at a high speed. This is the standard South Austin route to Buda and then continuing to Mountain City. This ... moreride is no-drop and the pace will average 15-16ish mph so be sure you can maintain that ride pace. No drop means that we regroup periodically and will stop as a group for minor mechanical problems such as flats or thrown chains; major problems will require AAA or the equivalent. Queue sheets are available at the start of the ride for those that need them. There is also a virtual route map at www.mapmyride.com

Regular bikes welcome, recumbents worshipped. The usual post ride fare and smack talk at Maria's Taco Xpress, an Austin institution.

Ride started from Bicycle Sport Shop at 517 South Lamar Blvd. You can email me at mistertax@hotmail.com if you have any questions.

This ride is designed for strong recreational riders with a few years in the saddle.

RIDE NAME AND DISTANCE: Florence to Salado, 51 miles DATE/TIME: Saturday 25th February, 8:30 am. RIDE LEADER/CONTACT: William Hudson; 210-387-7340; WilliamPedalsOn@gmail.com... more

DESCRIPTION: Explore a part of Bell County on “roads less travelled”. A very attractive 50-mile loop with shorter options (the latter with no store stop). Mostly low-trafficked roads.

AVERAGE SPEED: 16 - 18 mph. A guide only; actual pace depends on the group and to maintain this average, there will be some significantly faster stretches.

TERRAIN: No mega-hills though quite a bit of cumulative climbing on several gentle rollers.

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 significant urban traffic.

RIDE START ADDRESS & url: Ride start is at the Union State Bank on East Main @ Patterson in Florence. Can take either TX-183/FM-970 or I-35/FM-195 to get there. 100 E Main St, Florence, TX 76527. https://goo.gl/maps/xhLtsUzfwAG2

LUNCH/COFFEE? Something in Florence?

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.

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

In case of inclement weather, check this web site and/or my emails early on the morning of the ride.

I also have a Google Group (Austin and Central Texas Cycling) in which we discuss upcoming rides and miscellaneous cycling stuff. Email me (address above) if interested in joining – you can always unsubscribe yourself if you later decide you have no interest.

Mostly C pace with a few OPTIONAL short, fast bits (R E Lee hilltop, Akins High school parking lot, Creedmoor town limit). If you prefer, you might cruise through the fast bits and ... moreregroup with us after each one. 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. 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 8:00 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.

Sorry for the late posting, but thinking we can get this ride in BEFORE any precipitaion! NOTE: With thye current weather/wind forecast we may ride the Hutto-Waterloo-Thrall-Noak Pedal--(CW)--56 ... moremiles (RidewithGPS map attached) or the Hutto "BIG ROOSTER" Ride--(CCW)--50 miles (RidewithGPS map attached)

Then join us for this new/old route in the relatively flat expanses of Central Texas. This is a good south wind ride. We'll ride through the quiet farm/ranch lands of southeast Williamson County and northeast Travis county.. We'll travel on some quiet country roads (some are "vintage" chip seal and a little bumpy---air up your ties accordingly!) doing a steady "B" paced (15-17 mph) no-drop ride, with re-grouping as needed at the next turn.
We'll go east out of Hutto, then south wandering into Elgin, before turning west & north to go thru Cele on our way back into Hutto. With the expected mild winter weather, we'll have our store stop on the southwest side of Elgin at 33 miles. Total climbing is under 1500 ft. (per RIDEwithGPS) for this route.

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

NOTE II: Helmets are required on ALL Bike Austin rides.

Come with your equipment ready to ride 61 miles, in time to get signed-in and participate in the starter's meeting at 7:50 AM, for a prompt roll-out at 8:00 AM. Let's all hope for nice early winter weather!

If you are not familiar with our ride catagories; please see the following 2 sights to insure you are matched for this ride:

For all those interested (all are invited), we'll have coffee, conversation, and/or lunch (or just some delicious fresh homemade pie) afterwards at Hutto's "Notorious" Texan Cafe. Try one of their blue plate specials.

Meet at Hutto's Fritz Park on the NE side of Hutto. From Hwy 79 in Hutto go north 0.25 miles on FM 1660 and turn right onto E. Live Oak St. Drive 0.2 miles and turn left into the parking lot (ride start map location attached). Rest Rooms are open/available at Fritz Park.

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.
