NOTE: 51st street at I-35 was closed today. It's supposed to re-open at 7a tomorrow, but after talking to TxDot today, they said it may just be the sidewalk. If you drive to the ride, ... morehave an alternate plan, or leave a little early. I will post at 7a if we plan to cancel due to rain, but I won't be canceling for the cold. Bundle up!

Also, there is a street closure Loyola at 183. We will avoid that with an updated route, which is attached.

We'll wind our way from the Peddler through east Austin past Manor to Bitting School Rd. and back to the store stop in Manor and then back into town on the Walnut Creek Hike and Bike Trail. Lots of country miles on this route. The average speed will be 13-14 mph (on your gps), but on flat straight-a-ways there may be some sustained stretches of 15-23 mph. This is a no drop ride and we will regroup at turns and hilltops as necessary.

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

Riders should bring helmets, water, spare tube, and identification. Please leave headphones, speakers, and earbuds at home.

Helmets are required on all of my rides.

Please try to arrive 10 -15 minutes early for sign in and safety brief.

Post ride coffee and tacos at Flight Path.

RIDE IS ON!
I am leaving Austin and moving to Reno, Nevada for a great job opportunity, so I will be leading this ride for my last time. I have been injured for the last couple of weeks, but now ... moreI am all healed and ready to lead one last Bike Austin ride. If you know me, I hope you can join me.

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. No 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.

Ho ho ho! Spend Christmas Eve afternoon on your bike, as we ride through a variety of urban neighborhoods and spread some holiday cheer. Led by Santa (who resembles Rick Byrnes), we'll ... morebring along a Christmas carol sound system, and stop and visit with folks along the way, finding out who's been naughty or nice, and make some folks' holiday special. Santa may be warm and kind, emphasizing the need to be kind and do good deeds, or he may be a joke-cracking smart ass - who knows? Dress in the holiday spirit, decorate your bike?, and bring an assortment of inexpensive gifts to hand out to random people we meet along the route. Everyone loves Santa! This is a no-drop social ride - expect to ride 20 miles max in 2 hours.

Start at Tamale House East, 1707 E 6th Street (entrance on 5th Street), where we'll also gather for post-ride refreshment. Don't hog restaurant parking - street parking is available in surrounding blocks.

Ride may be cancelled if temp is below 45 deg F or there is high chance of rain - if questionable check this website 2 hours before ride or text 512-626-5212

7:30 AM Start Time! Check Here Sat. AM for Rain Status
Note earlier start time of 7:30 AM! Moderate paced ride with a couple of fast parts. No drop with regular regroup points. In recognition of our friend, Louis Mestier, and to wish ... morehim well as he begins his journey off to the wild, wild west, we will start this ride at 7:30 and then ride the 20 minutes over to Bicycle Sport Shop on South Lamar to connect with Louis and his group, then we'll ride with them out through South Austin to the Buda turnaround. Then off to Creedmoor to complete the usual course - this should add about 4 miles to the regular course. (Or, if you wish, back to Austin with Louis' group for one final fling at Maria's but then you'll have to make your way back to Mozart's with a tummy full of tacos).

Traditional course from Lake Austin through South Austin, Old San Antonio Road and eventually over to FM 1327 (or other back roads) to Creedmoor, then back to the city via Old Lockhart Road. 45 miles.

Start Location: Parking lot across Lake Austin Boulvard from Mozart's Coffee Roasters, 3825 Lake Austin Blvd, Austin, TX 78703. Up the hill, near the old boat. Please arrive 10 minutes early. Coffee and conversation after the ride at Mozart's.

A "Little" Longer Weekend Ride----. Bring some Carrots for the Donkeys!!
This is a very quiet scenic ride thru east Williamson County, starting from Lake Pflugerville (North parking lot). A quiet, (mostly country roads) ride thru northeast Travis, southeast ... moreWilliamson, & northwest Bastrop Counties. We'll pedal by Taylor's Murphy Park & Lake, thru "bustling" Thrall, and by the scenic/historic Lawrence Chapel, Cemetary, & log cabin. We'll plan for a quick visit with "The Friendly Donkeys" on the way home thru Coupland --- bring some "snacks" for the donkeys!! We'll be on many quiet country roads for this mostly flat (only 1892 ft. of climbing--per RidewithGPS). We'll have TWO STORE STOPS: at 28 miles (the Food Market in Thrall) and at 53 miles (Citgo Station in Coupland).
