Ride Description

START LOCATION 51ST STREET YMCA  AT HWY 183.  Address: 5315 Ed Bluestein Blvd, Austin, TX. 


i'm not betting on the trail reopening under Hwy 183 soon. 

 I'll have a silver Honda CRV with the rear hatch open parked in the backside of the parking lot to the right.  

A moderate C-pace ride (roughly 11 to 14 mph) on The Southern Walnut Creek Trail  This is a social ride.   Round trip is about 21 miles.  The trail is paved for the entire distance, with a 1/2 mile hill on the outbound.  We'll regroup at the top of the hill on the outbound and at the Abrupt End. The return is mostly downhill but with a rather steep climb up to the YMCA parking lot.

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

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

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.  We have access to the bathrooms in the YMCA at the start.There are restrooms at the Austin Tennis Center, about 1/3 mile off the trail at the top of the hill. 

• What to bring
helmet, water/sports drink, tools to fix a flat, spare inner tube, snack(optional)

This ride is cross-posted to the Austin Cycling group on
