Ride Description

A pretty scenic country ride from a NEW RURAL starting location;   The Manda Community Center.

NOTE I:  Please don't BLOCK the community MAIL BOXES on the south side of the parking area !!

NOTE II:  We'll start out riding north & east, then shortly after we ride through Coupland, we'll ride north on CR 456  over the "Old Truss Bridge" with 1.75 miles of gravel/hard packed dirt up to & after the bridge.   

We'll cross the "Old Truss Bridge" at mile 9 & then we will ride north into Taylor at mile 17, before heading east & south into Thrall; then continue south to ride by a DONKEY farm at mile 43.  We'll ride on some quiet country roads (some new & some we've ridden before, but in a different direction).  I'm trying to note all the "BAD" roads on this route in the act/spirit of transparency ---- there is no extra charge for all these bad roads ---i.e. ride at your own risk !!

Only 1781 ft. of climbing---per RIDEwithGPS !

NOTE III:  No rest room facilities at the Manda Community Center [but there is a BIG tree, looking kinda' dry right now, behind the Community Center for some ride start privacy !!]

This is a "B" paced "no-drop" ride.  Please be able to maintain a 15.0 - 16.5 mph pace for 57 miles.

Leaving promptly at 9:00 AM.  Maybe even "roll-out" at 8:58 !!

STORE STOP at mile 27 in Thrall (Thrall Food Mart on US 79)

NOTE III:  Helmets are required on ALL rides..

NOTE IV:  Please fill-out the riders paperless "waver" on the Bike Austin web, BEFORE you come to any Bike Austin Ride.


Please check this sight before you leave home for any possible cancellation.
