Tuesday Night Downtowner

**We almost lost daylight last week so we're starting a little earlier this week. Meet at 5:45pm this week and don't forget to bring a headlight and rear blinky**

Don is leading this week. Questions? His cell is (512) 585-7945.

This is a tried and true Tuesday Nighter for a lot of us old timers. It's been a year or so since we did it but it's always a fav. Now that I'm working downtown I'm going to revive it 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."

    I've got an urban commuter ... I need help to get it 'up to snuff' because I haven't used it in a long time ... gotta figure out how to pack it into the trunk of my car ...

      Anna, a friend just took her bike to Jack and Adams to get it in riding condition again. Do you have a hatchback or will your rear seats fold down ?

      Ok I'll try that ... It's a trunk, seats do fold down

    Cheryl, I think you may find us just right for you. You'll know within the first few miles, but I think you'll be OK.

    Would this be considered road biking?

      Absolutely. Some have brought mtn bikes, but their gearing makes it hard to keep up with the group. Avg speed is 12-15 with some fast rollers and a few tough hills. Come on out !
