Taking over for William on this ride. This is more or less his classic City Park ride where we go up Lakewood (or Beauford, if you like) and then over to City Park Road, Westminster ... moreGlen, Big View, 620, etc. On the way back, we turn on Centennial (to get off Anderson Mill Rd) and wind our way back to Jollyville with a few new twists and turns in between. There is an option at Floral Park to go right and do a few more hills or keep going on Jollyville straight to the Starbucks finish. This is a fairly hilly ride, so be prepared to climb some 15-20% grades.

Post-ride coffee at Starbucks for those interested.

Here's a new variation of the tried and true Blacks Fort route. Starting at the Elementary School in Bertram, we'll head north toward Joppa, make a swing by Blacks Fort and the continue ... moreon to Lampasas. Mid-point store stop in Lampasas to refuel before we head south for the return leg. Optional water stop in Lake Victor on the return (mile 44). Low traffic and bucolic vistas make this one of my favorite routes. Well worth the drive. Expect moderate rollers with 2500 ft of climbing and classic Texas chip seal. There is a 45 mile option with a water stop in Lake Victor, no store stop.

Helmets are mandatory. Plan to arrive by 7:45AM to sign-in, get ready, and participate in the safety briefing. The ride departs at 8:00AM sharp. Fuel and facilities stop at the midpoint. Minimum of 2 bottles or hydration pack required. This is a hosted ride for the 64 mile route.

Meet around back at the Bertram Elementary School, 315 Main Street in Bertram.

Join Amy Gelfand & Magge Valenti on an easy going and friendly ride in Williamson County. RIDE NAME AND DISTANCE: Weir Lost; 30 (plus a couple more to get to the store & back) ... moremiles.

DATE/TIME: Saturday September 30, 2017 @ 9:00 am.

RIDE LEADER/CONTACT: Maggie Valenti. 512-917-7322. margaretevalenti@gmail.com

DESCRIPTION: Starting behind the Salt Lick in the Dell Diamond parking lot we will travel through the sports complex and ride to the town of Weir and back. We will mostly be on farm roads but there are a couple of roads with high traffic where single file will be required. There are some small hills but the bigger challenge will be the wind.

AVERAGE SPEED: 12 to 17 mph. This all depends on the group and how tired Maggie & Amy are. We aren't that fast and are fine if folks ride off the front and wait at turns & intersections. And the wind.

TERRAIN: Flat to rolling??

Do you feel awkward when on a group ride and need to ask for help in fixing a flat? Don't fret .... we've all been there. Stop by and pick up a few hints on taking the wheel and tire ... moreoff, changing the tube and replacing them. You can either simply watch or bring your bike to practice. If you do the latter, you might want to bring a spare tube just in case of a mishap (pinched tube). If we have time, we can also touch on repairing a tube.

This 28-mile intermediate ride will visit 4 neighborhood parks, home to Art in Public Places TEMPO exhibits: Brentwood Park, Ramsey Park, Bartholomew Park, and Schroeter Park. The ... moreArtRides TEMPO North Route has fewer stops and more mileage than the South Route, finishing with a visit to Shroeter Park off of Duval Rd in northwest Austin. The plan is to explore portions of the new Mopac Bike Path with a cut-through back into the neighborhood via the Hyde Park Baptist Church property which is open for public access. Most of this ride is along fairly comfortable routes but our finish is on Jollyville Rd to the Arboretum. Please judge your abilities fairly against the route description for the safety and enjoyment of other riders. If the ride is a stretch for you, make plans to ride with us on Nov 18th for TEMPO Convergence when the works will be located in East Austin.
