Join us for our standard ride to Mckinney Falls. The average speed will be 13-15 mph, but on flat straight-a-ways there may be some sustained stretches of 15-20 mph. This is a no drop ... moreride and we will regroup at turns and hilltops as necessary.

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

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.

I'm hosting the classic Dripping Springs To Wimberley ride with a few twists. Sorry for the late posting. No low water crossings, so we do not take the first right on Creek road but ... morekeep going and take a right on Prichnow road (sign posted for MT Gyanor lodge).

We will come out and do a left on Purlsley road which will align with the route people are maybe more familar with.
Then right on Mt Sharp road and right again on Mt Sharp road, as opposed to straight on to Pump road, this is a deviation to what people maybe used to but is a beautiful addition and adds some more climbing.

I intend to ride along River road and HW12 to see the best of Wimberly, then a store stop at the usual gas station opposite HEB.

This ride comes in at 56.6 miles and 3000ft so it is not for the novice and
will be ridden at a fairly aggressive pace 16+ average.

I plan to host from the front with re-group points at key junctions.

Unfortunately RWGPS would not co-operate as far as providing a map.
So I only have a Strava link available, which can only be accessed if you have upgraded Strava membership.
I can email a TCX file if you drop me your email.

Please no requests for ride changes at this late date.
Thanks

Sorry for the late posting-----Let's do this "NEW HIP" ride!! I will be walking 1 low water crossing!! This is a much better weekday route; due to the very heavy weekend traffic on ... moreHamilton Pool Road.

A Pedernales Pedal (counter clockwise) version, from a different/new starting location (see below)!!

Hilly, but a very scenic/pretty route, with only a few turns---very different for me!! We'll ride west past Hamilton Pool, crossing the Pedernales River into Cypriss Mill and on west, before turning south on Texas 281 into Johnson City. We'll go east out of Johnson City on Robinson Road winding our way past the Pedernales Park entrance on our meandering ride back to Ranch Road 12, before turning north back to our starting location----only 7 lines on the Q-sheet!! Just under 3100 ft. of climbing (per RidewithGPS). We'll have a STORE STOP, in Johnson City, at 33 miles.

NOTE I: Please arrive, and be ready to ride 58-60 miles, in time for a 8:50 AM riders meeting so we can roll promptly at 9:00 AM.

NOTE II: Helmets are required on all Bike Austin rides.

NOTE III: I do not have maps of this route, but Q-sheets will be provided. An version is listed below, from RIDEwithGPS, for electronic downloading.

STARTING LOCATION: The Texaco Station/Convenience Store at the corner of Hamilton Pool Rd. & Ranch Road 12. Please park at the far west end of the little strip mall---Do NOT block the store entrance or gas pumps. Please see the starting location map below.

ATTENTION----Delaying this ride for better recovery timing!---Tell you what---We are going to make it a BIRTHDAY CELEBRATION ride for ALL those who do this ride!!! Heck; we will all ... morebe "old geezers" someday!!
OK-OK, it is time for a nice group ride to celebrate the birthday's of several "old geezers" you may have done a little riding with over the last few years!

A quiet, (mostly country roads) ride thru northeast Travis, southeast Williamson, & northwest Bastrop Counties. We'll pedal by Taylor's Murphy Park & Lake, thru "bustling" Thrall, by the historic Lawrence Chapel, by the scenic 8 Point Ranch (home to many exotic animals), by the Dream Time Animal Sanctuary, and finally pedal home by the quiet New Sweden Lutheran Church Cemetery! We'll be on many quiet country roads for this flat (only 1715 ft. of climbing--per RidewithGPS). We'll have STORE STOPS at 25 miles (the Food Market in Thrall) and at 53 miles (Doc's Country Store at County Line Rd. & US 290).

Note the starting location!! We will start from Richland Hall on Cameron Rd., about half way between Stager Lane and Cele Rd., on the west side of the road, next to the Travis County Fire Dept. Training Center. There is an "outhouse" at the starting location, but to be safe, you may want to bring your own TP!!
