Tuesday Night Downtowner

This is a tried and true Tuesday Nighter for a lot of us old timers.  It's been a favorite of many, so we are going to start it up again now that daylight savings time has changed. This will be weekly for those of you that can't make it to Lakeway after work.

Meet at The Rock across from the tennis courts on Veterans Parkway, near the water coolers set up for runners.  There is much more parking available - for those who don't ride in - under the Stratford Street//Ladybird Lake trailhead entrance parking under MoPac.  Just unload and ride across the pedestrian bridge to The Rock.

We'll ride about 20 mile loop to Steck/Balcones via Lake Austin/Escarpment/Shoal Creek.  I have a map and will post it as soon as I find it!  Bear with me as we get this new weekly ride organized.  I'd appreciate ride leaders so we have people to sweep as well as lead.

This is an intermediate ride and we'll add beginners as soon as I'm sure that we have enough ride leaders to ensure beginner riders' safety.

This is a GREAT way to end the day.  We roll back in through Scenic along the lake and it's like a roller coaster.

Let's ROLL!

Here's a map of the general J&A route although the start point is wrong. (We pick it up under the MoPac bridge!) See the turn-by-turn route by clicking on "notes."

    Also to Colin and anyone else wondering about other meeting points- is anyone up for meeting up north and heading downtown? I live up north so I'd rather do the loop backwards. If you can meet earlier, we could time it to meet at the Rock with the rest of the group and ride back with them up north.

      Hey, I live down south also - I ride down to Buda and Kyle all the time and have wanted to head out to Wimberley or Driftwood but have never done so. I would like to ride with someone who has done it and knows the way. I am always up for a Saturday or Sunday ride.

      Sounds good to me. It's 48 round trip from my place at the onion creek overpass. I'm not sure which day yet, but I can go this weekend.

    I showed up last week but there was only about 3 of us there... Is there ever another meet point for this ride? I was in the area way before launch time so I can't imagine I would've missed seeing the group.

      The rain scared most peeps off last week. I didn't make it back in town to make the ride also. The ride leaves at 6pm sharp in most cases. We gather at the MoPac ped bridge on the school side.(north side of lake) It's hard to miss us. We usually crowd the ramp for the bridge.

      Thanks, Thomas. I figured it was something like that. I made it a run day instead.

    • thomas a.

      Not sure. I wasn't able to switch my shift. So, I won't be there today again. :/ that can be a discussion between who wants to eat.
