Ride starts at 8 AM. A moderate C-pace ride (roughly 11 to 14 mph) on The Southern Walnut Creek Trail from Govalle Park to the Abrupt End and return. Round trip is about 20 miles. ... moreThe trail is paved for the entire distance, with a 1/2 mile hill on the outbound. We'll regroup periodically on the outbound, and at the Abrupt End. The return is mostly downhill. And you might even see Lance flashing by.

The trail is two-way and narrows down in spots, with a couple of blind corners. Single-file riding and moderate speed on the turns is recommended!

There are two significant road intersections that require caution to cross.

Optional coffee afterwards at Sai-Ten Cafe, 916 Sprindale Road.

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.

There are no restrooms on the trail itself. There are restrooms at Govalle Park and at the Austin Tennis Center, about 1/3 mile off the trail.

Come join us in this hilly ride to jump start your fabulous Thursday morning before heading to work. We cover hills in Great Hill and Spicewood area navigating mostly through neighbourhood ... morestreets. This is a no-drop ride. However, be prepared to climb (a lot for Thursday morning!)

AVERAGE SPEED: 10 - 13 mph. Don't be fooled with low speed. This ride is very hilly. If you are new to these hills, please let someone know if you want to continue after 3 hills. If you wish to continue, remember we always regroup at the top of the hill.

TERRAIN: Very hilly

RIDER LEVEL: Experienced, self-confident riders who are comfortable riding hilly terrain and exposure to some light urban traffic.

RIDE START ADDRESS: Starbucks @ 9722 Great Hills Trl, Austin, TX 78759

MAP/CUE/RideWithGPS: https://ridewithgps.com/routes/28194015 -> This is mostly our ride. Sometimes, we like to change few things here and there.

LUNCH/COFFEE? I will head to work after ride, but you might catch interesting conversation with the rest of the folks at Starbucks.

IF ROADS ARE WET OR RAIN IMMINENT, RIDE WILL BE CANCELED. Ride starts at 8:15 AM at Mellow Johnny's Bike Shop @ 400 Nueces St. Austin, TX.... more

These rides are co-hosted by Mellow Johnny’s and Bike Austin. This no-drop group ride is perfect for the cyclist new to riding or bike commuting, returning to the bike, or just looking for a more casual ride. The routes are designed to help riders navigate the city bike routes and other safe bike commuting options.

To accommodate the number of riders and varying fitness, there are two groups. The first group is designed for those who can average 14-16mph for 20-30 miles with one or two regrouping points. This group follows the same route but is provided with an extended mileage option.

The second group is our traditional Scout-a-route. We average 12mph for distances between 15-25 miles with regrouping points.

Both rides are intended to explore, so leave your heart rate monitor at home, bring some spare dollars for the occasional refreshment stop and enjoy the view.

General ride expectations: helmet, bike in good working condition, spare tire tube, water and nutrition, and no headphone/radios. We encourage you to ride to the shop. If driving, please park in the street.

For pre-ride refreshment, meet at Juan Pelota Café (located inside Mellow Johnny's) 30 minutes before start time.
