A good south wind country ride for those who may like this option.

The course is over some familiar roads through rural northeast Travis county. Come and join us for this early morning ride. We'll do a moderate (15-16 mph) "B" pace and re-group at the next major turn or top of the climb. We'll start from the Lake Pflugerville north parking lot and head east, then south, climbing the Jones Hill, then back west, travelling on Taylor Rd., Bloor Rd., and Blue Bluff Rd.; coming home thru Manor with the (hopefully) prevailing tail wind. We'll have a store stop on FM 969 at 27 miles.

Note I: I don't have maps of this course, but Q-sheets will be provided and the RidewithGPS version of the course is attached for electronic downloading.

Note II: Helmets are required on all Bike Austin rides.

Note III: Left "click" on this ride's title to get/see the starting location map & address, as well as the ride route map in RidewithGPS.

Please arrive, with you and your equipment ready to ride 45 miles, in time to sign-in prior to the starters meeting at 7:50 AM; for a prompt roll-out at 8:00 AM. The early starting time is keeping us in the "Beat-the Heat" mode in the warm spring months.
