Rides suitable for cyclists who are new to the sport (or who have not been on a bike for some years), family-friendly rides or any riders that feel a need for some mentoring. Note: please note that minors under the age of 16 cannot participate in rides unless accompanied by a parent or guardian. Families with children should, in any event, confirm with the ride leader ahead of time that the ride will be suitable for their needs.

Targeted towards riders who have a few years in the saddle, who have developed some riding confidence and fitness and feel ready to move to the next level. Could attract more experienced riders who are looking for a relaxed or less aggressive ride.

Limited to experienced riders with superior bike handling skills and who are comfortable with a fast pace (probably including single and/or double pace-line riding) and/or hilly terrain, and the possibility of heavily trafficked roads. Advanced rides are less likely to be "no-drop" unless identified as such.
Expected Turnout
15 - 50 riders
50 - 50
Average Speed

Ride Canceled. Sigh...
We'll head out Manor Rd. to Springdale and weave our way through east Travis Co. to the church in New Sweden where we'll take Manda Rd. to old Kimbro and across 290 to Old Hwy 20 and on to the store stop in Manor and then city streets back into town. The store stop in Manor is not until mile 34 so plan accordingly and be sure to bring enough water.

This is a no drop ride so we will regroup on hills and turns as needed.

Helmets are mandatory on all of my rides. Lights front and rear are also highly recommended.

Please try to arrive 10 minutes early for sign in and safety brief. We always attempt to leave on time. 

Parking is available north of 51st on Duval. Please do not park in front of or behind the Peddler.

Post ride pizza, beer, and conversation at HomeSlice on Duval and 51st.

Be sure to check this site 1 hour before ride. Cancellation notice will be online 1 hour before in the event of iffy weather.
