Join us for a ride that goes west and northwest from the Peddler past RR 620 to Lime Creek Road and back (unless you are going on to Alaska). There is some urban riding, but most of ... morethe ride is in bike lanes or on quiet shady neighborhood streets. This ride is not as hilly as it gets in Austin, but there are several short steep hills that may challenge riders unused to hills. This is a no drop ride and we will regroup at corners and hilltops as necessary.

Average speed will be 13-15 mph, but the group will go faster on flat straightaways. This is a no-drop ride and we will regroup on hills and turns as necessary.

Parking is available north of 51st on Duval and on the side streets around Duval. Please don't park in the alley behind the Peddler and Flight Path Coffeehouse.

Please arrive at least 10 minutes early for sign-in and route briefing. We will leave promptly at 8:00

Coffee and conversation afterwards at the Flight Path.

Helmets are required on Peddler Bike Austin rides and riders should bring water, emergency identification, and a spare tube. Please leave headphones, speakers, and earbuds at home.

In future I may stretch this ride out to San Marcos (72 miles) for those wanting to ramp up their mileage. But pace will slow accordingly. Watch this space!

Ride is ON!
Ride start at 8 AM sharp! 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 Sa-Ten Cafe at 916 Springdale, Suite 110.

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.

Ride the scenic hills of beautiful west Austin: beautiful old homes, generally shady, and lots of (usually) short hills. This can be as hard as you want to make it, or it can be moderate. ... moreI won't say easy, because some of these are tough just to keep the bike moving. But a great respite from the heat, and frequent regroup points. Quite a few route options, so we can vary it as we choose. (Iced?) coffee at Mozart's afterwards.

Note the EARLY start time to "BEAT-the-HEAT" . It's that time of the month!!! Come ride with Mark Perkins as he completes a century ride for the 102nd consecutive month!!! Picking ... morethis Saturday, 6-2-2018, because it looks like one of our better "good" weather days, early in June, to do this longer ride---sunny, good temps., & moderate winds!

A scenic ride starting at Lake Pflugerville, heading east and north into Granger before continuing east and crossing the scenic Granger Dam. We then ride south into Trall, continuing south we'll ride by the Lawrence Chapel & Cemetery heading into Elgin, before going west (staying north of Manor) back to our starting location. We'll have only 2590 ft. of climbing (per RIDEwithGPS). We have choices of 5 store stops---@ 22, 30, 48, 78, & 86 miles.

Please know this Half Century ride will NOT be hosted---you'll be doing a "self paced" ride with the Q-sheets and the RIDEwitGPS electronic download, after the 24 mile mark!

NOTE II: I don't have maps of these courses, but Q-sheets (for the Century & Half Century routes) will be available and the RideWithGPS version of both routes are attached for electronic downloading.

NOTE III: Helmets are required on all Bike Austin rides.

NOTE IV: We'll be riding on some "vintage" Travis, Williamson, & Bastrop County "chip-seal" roads----inflate your tires accordingly!!

NEW START TIME! This is the standard South Austin route to Buda and then returning. This ride is no-drop and the pace will average 14ish mph so be sure you can maintain that ride pace. ... moreNo 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. There is 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 starts from Bicycle Sport Shop at 517 South Lamar Blvd. You can email me at mistertax@hotmail.com if you have any questions.
