Turkey Ride South

Great time with all the crazy Turkeys.. come out and ride a blend of a few routes.  This is the general direction I'd like to go.  Route is not set in stone and there is a way to cut some miles off.  If we leave at 8:30 we should be back by 12:30 including stops.  


Comment and let me know if we need to shorten the route?? I can get a nice 40-43 mile route and cut off 10 miles and have us back by 11:45ish.  


Thanks and pass this on so we can have a great group..

    Thanks to Mike for organizing and to Donald for leading the 28-mile group. I enjoyed the company, the scenery and the workout! I hope you all enjoy your holiday!

    Did the short ride 28 miles, cold to start but warmed up, a fun ride.

    I figured we would ride a couple of hours maximum so if others have a similar timeframe in mind, I am in.

      I printed turn x turn sheets for the short route. 33 miles or could even make it 25 -- two different options where to turn off Old Lockhart Hwy.

    We will head out westgate to stassney to burleson as usual .

  • Chris C.

    Depending on how cold it is, I might do the really short route. Like one lap around the parking lot and back for a latte!

    I need to be somewhere @ 11:30 so this is my variation -- about 33 miles: http://www.mapmyride.com/routes/view/329521319 Anybody wants to do less than the full ride please feel welcome to join me, otherwise when we get to McKinney Falls I will be on my own, or maybe with Bob. I will enjoy the group for the first 15!

    Wish I could go but I'm expecting company at 9:30 AM. We're going to paint my ceiling. Our Thanksgiving celebration will be Sat when the family can all be here. Happy Turkey Day everyone and stay warm!

    Looks like bright and sunny but mid 30's to start. Layers! Layers! Layers!

    Starbucks is next to Maudies. Please park away from businesses.

    Looks like there will be a short route.

    May be to fast for this old cyclist!

    What's the pace of this ride?

    1 · November 24, 2013

    • John H.

      I'm thinking 14-17 would be typical with this group, depending on weather, wind, who shows, etc. For my part anything over 16 would please me. 17 probably means a younger stronger guy towed me through most of it!

    • Adam H.

      Thanks!

    What's the steepest grade? Makes difference what bike I ride! Some look pretty steep!

    November 26, 2013

    • John H.

      Haven't ridden this exact route per se but it is generally flat south and east (and north) of town. A few rollers. No killer climbs.

    I'm down for the full distance- looking at the map, is the route clockwise or counter?

    Looks like a nice route. Sorry I can't join you all, will be riding down to the Turkey Trot to support friends and family running. Have a great ride and happy Thanksgiving.

    November 25, 2013

  • Kelly G.

    That looks like a good route!

    I need to be by Slaughter and Manchaca by 11:30 latest. I could take a shortcut back on my own if it comes to that. I would be up for taking off earlier no problem. Just my one vote and I can make it work whatever the group decides, just might have to leave the group part way..

  • John H.

    I might come with guests. Thoughts a on a route yet MB?

  • John

    Looking fwd to a TDay ride. If you're still considering routes, last year I took Congress from my house [Slaughter & Manchaca] into town for the TTrot. Then back home in plenty of time to nosh & nap the day away. Just a thought.

    Riding to downtown to cheer on family in the TurkeyTrot

    I will go if it is over early so I can make 11:30 TGiving dinner at my stepson/daugher-in-law's house. Re' Starbucks: Starbucks does not serve cyclists in their drive-throughs by national policy. There are a couple of VERY friendly locally owned coffee shops in that immediate area.
