Ride starts at 9 AM at Mellow Johnny's Bike Shop @ 400 Nueces St. Austin, TX. These rides are co-hosted by Mellow Johnny’s and Bike Austin. This no-drop group ride is perfect ... morefor 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.

Yes, that's right - a fat burner ride: long and steady, no sprints. Those 8 pounds from Thanksgiving/Christmas/New Years are still there, so it's time for long miles. Not long HARD ... moremiles, just long miles, so this time we're doing 55 miles on one of our usual routes. Longer rides later. No drop; we'll regroup if necessary anywhere the group can get split, and refuel at the Kyle Valero station. C pace home again. Coffee and conversation afterwards at Mozart's.

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 OR DANGEROUSLY HIGH WIND.

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.

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.

New Spring Start Time is 9:00 AM! We ride roughly 11 to 14 mph on the Southern Walnut Creek Trail from the trailhead at Govalle Park up to the Abrupt End at Lindell Lane just north ... moreof Decker Lake. Round trip is about 20 miles.

The 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.

The trail is two-way and narrows down in spots. Single-file riding is recommended.
There are two significant road intersections that require caution to cross.

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.

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.

(Optional) Meet after the ride for coffee / brunch at Sa-Ten cafe, 916 Springdale Rd. It is within easy cycling distance of Govalle Park.
