Ride Description
  • Cheryl LaRobardier was a Bike Austin ride leader and ride participant for many years.  She particularly liked riding near her home in the Dripping Springs area which is where today’s ride is taking place.  She and her husband, Craig, moved to Raleigh in October.  In December last, while out on a ride, Cheryl was tragically struck by a car and died shortly thereafter.  Austin's cycling community lost a skilled rider and compassionate friend.
  • Cheryl’s Memorial/Celebration is now scheduled for 12 noon on Saturday 18th March at the St. Martin de Porres Parish Hall In Dripping Springs. Link incl. RSVP to this event is here:
  • It will be preceded by this celebratory ride, with the intent being to finish shortly before noon.  The hope is that all riders will at least start together although if attendance is high, riders may separate based on average speed.  
  • In the event of any low-water crossing, please dismount and walk. They can be dangerously slippery.
  • Please give way to motor vehicles behind you, if at all possible, especially if attendance is high.
  • Bathrooms: none the at ride start but gas stations are close by. There are no store stops en route.
  • Most of our rides are for self-confident riders who are comfortable and safe in a group riding situation which could (depending on the route) include pace-line riding, hilly terrain and exposure to urban traffic.  
  • Helmets are mandatory on all our rides. 
  • The routes is provided below in RWGPS format and cue sheets are printable from that site.  Printed maps or cue sheets will not be available at the ride start.
  • Ride will be “no drop” but only assuming that riders have properly matched themselves to the ride description, average speed and terrain. We will regroup as necessary.
  • Please arrive at least 15 minutes early to prepare yourself + bike, have the 5-minute safety briefing to be ready for an on-time departure.
  • In case of inclement weather, check this web site early on the morning of the ride.
