Ride is on. Going to be chiily.
Posting Drippingsprings to Blanco again. Last time we had issue with crossing Blanco on Red Coral Ranch Rd. checked last Friday and it was dry (see picture) assuming recent rains will ... morenot change status.

Forecast looks good but a bit cooler, so dress accordingly.

Not been riding so not planning on a agressive ride other than having to get over the hills.

Very much an out and back route only overlaps with our usual Dripping to Wimberly ride a for a few miles at the start. We hit some great country roads "Red Coral Ranch rd" and '"Chimney Valley rd" which parrallel the Blanco for a number of miles. A stretch into Blanco ~5 miles on FM165 where we need to go single file but should be fine for a Sunday ride.

Overall about 2800ft of climbing but mainly rolling no really step sections. Not planning on a killer pace and lots of easy re-group points at the major junctions.

One store stop in Blanco at the turn around point.

We can discuss lunch options after the ride if anyone is interested.

For those of you who want a Strava link see path below.

https://www.strava.com/routes/11488966

Avoids water crossings for the most part a few on "Red Chimney ranch rd" but easy to spot and unlikely to be an issue.
