Texas "Rides" Again

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.

For the last 14 years the Twin City Bicycling Club hosted a week of biking for their Minnesota members mid January in the area of Mable Falls.  Over the years we enjoyed pedaling with some of you “locals”, and would welcome the opportunity to do so again.

The event has been reinvigorated moving it to Kerrville - closer to the true hill country - headquartering out of the YO Ranch Hotel.  The date was changed to February 10 – 26th taking advantage of warmer weather and longer days.

Do consider biking with us we would enjoy your company!   David Gepner 612-861-1703  WentBiking@comcast.net

The 10th Friday's ride from the YO Ranch will leave at 1:30 and offers a choice of a 38 mile loop or a 19 mile option – http://mapshare.delorme.com/Consumer/V.aspx?p=fz73sjh8

The 11th On Saturday we’ll leave the YO Ranch at 9:30 and drive 22 miles over to Fredericksburg to the Old Fair Park (208 E Park St) for a 37 mile loop to the north and then east coming back on Lower Crabapple Rd  (http://www.gmap-pedometer.com/?r=7016897Close)

The 12th Sunday’s mornings 9:30 ride from the YO takes us south of Kerrville on a couple of loops of either 24 or 40 miles (http://mapshare.delorme.com/Consumer/V.aspx?p=7prrmmb8)


The 13th ride on Monday requires leaving at the YO at 9:15 on a 38 mile NW drive getting us to LBJ Park (199 State Park Rd 52 – Stonewall TX) where we’ll bike the familiar Sandy Loop of 24 or 52 miles.  Short cut options on the longer route would reduce the miles by 4 or 7 miles.

The 14th On Tuesday we’ll, again, leave at 9:30 for Old Fair Park and bike a 42 mile loop (http://mapshare.delorme.com/Consumer/V.aspx?p=20vwmg2k)

Join us Tuesday evening where at about 5:30 we'll be dining and celebrating Valentines’ day at Bill’s Bar-B-Que (1909 Junction Highway)

The 15th On Wednesday we’re back to leaving the YO at 9:15 for LBJ Park where there’s a choice of 22, 35 or 60 mile routes - the longer of which goes up to and around the Willow Loop  http://mapshare.delorme.com/Consumer/V.aspx?p=h2glt64s

The 16th On Thursday we have the opportunity of biking away at 10 with fellow YO guests that are youthful members of the Matrix Bike Club of Dallas/Ft Worth
