RIDE NAME AND DISTANCE: Willow City Loop; 55 miles DATE/TIME: Thursday 5th April @ 9 a.m. RIDE LEADER/CONTACT: William Hudson; 210-387-7340; WilliamPedalsOn@gmail.com... more

DESCRIPTION:

AVERAGE SPEED: 13 - 16 mph. A guide only; actual pace depends on the group and to maintain this average, there will be some significantly faster stretches.

TERRAIN: Hilly/very hilly with about 2800 ft. of climbing. I would consider at least two climbs as "non trivial".

RIDER LEVEL: Experienced, self-confident riders who are comfortable and very safe in a group riding situation which could include pace-line riding, hilly terrain and exposure to significant urban traffic.

OTHER:

· Helmets are mandatory on all my rides.

· Ride will be “no drop” but only assuming riders have properly matched themselves to the ride description, average speed and terrain.

· It is essential that you take a minimum of two large water bottles and/or Camelbac. There are no convenience stores per se. Harry's On the Loop (beer/burgers) is still open (?); the hours are a little unpredictable. The Willow City Volunteer Fire dept. is still there and has a water faucet (bring extra Scratch powder or whatever).

· This ride is relatively remote to major mechanicals will be a serious pain in the you-know-what. Please make sure your bike is in good mechanical condition and that you have spare tubes, tools etc.

· The Loop road is public but the shoulders/verges are not. It is essential that you honor the rights of the private landholders.

· Please arrive early enough 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 and/or my emails early on the morning of the ride.

I also have a Google Group (Austin and Central Texas Cycling) in which we discuss upcoming rides and miscellaneous cycling stuff. Email me (address above) if interested in joining – you can always unsubscribe yourself if you later decide you have no interest.

Join us for a 2-day, self-contained biking / camping trip from Mother Neff State Park (north of Ft. Hood) along country roads to Lake Whitney State Park (http://tpwd.texas.gov/state-parks/lake-whitney). ... moreSelf-contained bike touring (https://www.adventurecycling.org/resources/how-to-department/bicycle-travel-basics/) uses a rack and panniers (or trailer) to haul everything you need for the journey on your bike. If we get a volunteer SAG driver (not organized by the club), you may be able to put some of your luggage in the vehicle; otherwise you will be carrying everything you need on your bike. If you have a rear rack but no panniers we may be able to lend you some.

We will ride about 55 miles each day, with a group pace averaging 12 mph. We plan to ride together, but route sheets will be provided for those who wish to ride faster or slower. Bring snacks and lunch food for Saturday. We'll stop for dinner in a cafe about 10 miles from Lake Whitney S.P., pick up food for breakfast, and ride on to the park. After a group breakfast we'll head back on Sunday. We can stop at a grocery to resupply Sunday morning.

Chip in $20 per person to cover camping and Sunday breakfast. Funds collected which exceed expenses will be donated to charity. Additional funds are needed to buy your dinner, as well as snacks and lunch along the route, park admission ($6), and to contribute to the SAG driver's expenses. To RSVP, send an email to trip organizer John Lacy lacy@astro.as.utexas.edu . He will interview each participant to make sure the trip is right for them. Co-sponsored by Austin Sierra Club.

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. The trail is paved for ... morethe 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.

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.
