This is a flat route with quiet roads and classic Texas chip seal. Air your tires accordingly.

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.

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

Join us for a 2-day,self-contained biking / camping trip from Leander along quiet country roads to Dana Peak Park on Stillhouse Hollow Lake. Self-contained bike touring uses a rack ... moreand panniers (or trailer) to haul everything you need for the journey on your bike. Occasionally we recruit a volunteer SAG driver (not organized by the club), so that carrying your own luggage is not required. As of press time, there is no SAG.

Expect to ride about 50 miles each day on some hilly terrain, with a group pace averaging 12 mph. Route sheets will be provided for those who wish to ride faster or slower. We'll stop for Saturday lunch in a cafe in Florence, and set up camp in the afternoon, taking a stroll along the lake before fixing dinner. After a hearty breakfast we'll head back on Sunday, stopping along the way for lunch.

Chip in $5 per person to cover camping (primitive site). Additional funds are needed to buy your own food along the route, and should we have a SAG driver you would need to chip in for his expenses. RSVP needed - leader will need to interview each participant to make sure the trip is right for them.

Riders must wear a helmet, obey all traffic laws, and carry equipment to change a flat tire. Recommended to wear bright color clothing / flashing tail lite and carry cell phone. For camping, bring tent, sleeping bag & pad, raingear, flashlight, change of clothes, towel, toothbrush etc, and eating utensils.

Exact start location will be provided. If likelihood of bad weather is predicted, the trip will be cancelled. Event is co-sponsored with Austin Sierra Club. Assistant leader: Diane N.

We'll be in east & north Williamson County on some quiet farm/ranch roads. We'll ride together across the scenic Granger Dam before turning north towards Bartlett. I've re-routed this ride--following many of the Outlaw Trail 100 roads---to try and avoid the many dirt/gravel roads north of Granger Lake & west of Bartlett. Although the roads my be quiet; some are "vintage" chip seal and a little bumpy---air up your ties accordingly! Expect to ride a steady "B" pace (14-16 mph), no-drop ride, with re-grouping as needed at the next turn.
With the expected late fall weather, we'll have 3 store stops: 1) in Circleville at 24 miles, 2) in Bartlett at 50 miles, & 3) in Weir at 75 miles. Total climbing is 2540 ft. (per RIDEwithGPS)

A moderate C-pace ride (roughly 11 to 14 mph) on The Southern Walnut Creek Trail from the trailhead at Govalle Park to Manor and return. Round trip is about 27 miles- estimated. The ... moretrail is paved for the entire distance, with a 1/2 mile hill on the outbound. We'll on county roads for the last bit between the Abrupt End to Manor. We'll regroup periodically on the outbound and at a convenience store in Manor for a rest break. The return is mostly downhill.

The trail is two-way and narrows down in spots, with a couple of blind corners. Single-file riding is recommended.

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

This ride is cross-posted to Bike Austin.

A map of Govalle 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.

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, and in Manor.
