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!

      Ray, do you know anything bout Franklin's?? They always sell out!! Lol

      July 13

    • Ray L.

      Ahh. Didn't know.

    Ray, it takes hours to get served at Franklins if you even can. I went to Blacks on Barton Springs for lunch and have to advise that I could feel the effect of a very high sodium content the rest of the day. While the food tasted pretty salty, I suspect lots of MSG on top of that. But only one experience by one individual, of course.
