taco deli monday!

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.

meet at the parking lot behind the assistance league of austin (49th and woodrow)
ride is 17-18mph average.  those on the front may be pushing the pace, you will get a workout.
3 regroups points:
- nelos on mesa (you can top off water bottles inside)
- top of far west climb (at mesa)
- after scenic dr climb at rockmoor ave

there is 1 large descent down ladera norte and climb up far west.  you can optionally skip this and meet at the far west + mesa regroup point. (you can log flat miles on greystone/mesa and the top of far west)

ride ends 1 block south of the start at pinthouse pizza for pizza and beer!

disclaimer: this ride is not sponsored by taco deli. it started as a training ride for ms150 and has evolved into something else over time...
