Wednesday Night DT ride to eat!!

welcome to the wed downtown ride to eat ride!!

ride is 24mi. route is a loop around austin. which starts on the westside. it goes north from start though neighborhood along MoPac to anderson ln. then heads east over to springdale. then south on springdale back to downtown. ride avg is bout 14-17mph depending on weather and who shows up. also at 17mph avg that means there will be fast sections that can get to 22-28mph. if the strong riders are hot dogging. dont worry this is a no drop ride. we regroup on these sections. also if the pace is still to fast someone will fall back and ride with you.

this is a night ride so come prepared with lights!! of course dont forget the usual stuff, helmet, and flat repair.

also this is a ride to eat ride. which means as we get closer to downtown, well will stop to eat somewhere, possibly before returning to start. if a place is chosen where you would need locks. well will advise in a comment with the destination. for those that dont wont to eat or have the time. there is a map provided. plus there is usually a veteran rider thats heading back to start.

this is a great ride. so, come out and enjoy good company and good food!!

Let's ROLL!

      No way I will feel as hot as I did at mile 105 Saturday doing the long Convict Hill climb towards ACC Pinnacle! I was supposed to beat the heat back to the house but that didn't quite happen! But yes, I have moved from one to two water bottles per 20 miles or so.

      Maybe some strategically placed hives could spur us all on to cycling greatness--and there's no test for being chased by bees!

      just asking does anyone ever call these places? I just called and asked about their menu and the girl said she would let them know to save space on the patio for 15-20 people. just fyi.

    Just got through aligning my disc brake calipers -- seems some people don't like screeching bikes? :) :) Will see on ride tonight if quieter.

      Saves hollering "Stopping!" Or hand signaling. 'Cause we all know!

      Well, that's what I thought. but perhaps with my 68 year old high frequency hearing level I don't realize how obnoxious it is. These disc brakes have never been quiet. I don't have a problem with rim brake noise on any of my bikes.
