Red Rock and Roll -- (CW) -Lockhart, TX.

Road, Social, No Drop
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.

A nice ride from Lockhart, Texas over some very scenic roads.

Join us for this ACA classic route in the relatively flat expanses of Central Texas. We'll travel on some quiet country roads (some are "vintage" chip seal and a little bumpy---air up your ties accordingly!) doing a steady "B" paced (14-17 mph) no-drop ride, with re-grouping as needed at the next turn.
With the forecasted mild early spring weather, we can choose from (or stop at both) 2 store stops: in Rockne at 22 miles and/or in McMahan at 37 miles. Total climbing is under 1750 ft. (per RIDEwithGPS)

NOTE I: I do have maps of this route and the RIDEwithGPS link is provided here for downloading.

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

NOTE III:  Jeff is, once again, offering to write you an "excused absence" note if you should need one !!!!

Come with you & your equipment ready to ride 56 miles, in time to get signed-in and participate in the starter's meeting at 7:20 AM, for a prompt roll-out at 7:30 AM. Let's all hope for good riding weather! 

If you are not familiar with our ride catagories; please see the following 2 sights to insure you are matched for this ride:

For all those interested (all are invited -- crowds permitting), we'll do lunch after the ride at Black's BBQ in Lockhart. 

Meet at the Lockhart City Park at the corner of Flores St. (FM 672) & Carver St.  Just east of the Plum Creek Elementarty School (ride start map location attached).  Rest Rooms are NOT available at this location.
Check this posting ride day morning in case of a weather cancellation.
