This will be a chance for the urban members to mingle with the rural members. Our combined club is now well over 100 members so this one should be major blast!
The Lake Hawkins ride will depart Fairhaven Vineyards at 11:00 am on Saturday morning April 5. This ride is one of the more pleasurable rides anywhere in the state. The lake circuit is 13.1 miles on a road that has little or no traffic. The route follows the shoreline of one of Texas' most pristine freshwater lakes. There is an abundance of wildlife to be seen, including a mated pair of American Bald Eagles! It is a great opportunity for pictures so bring a camera.
The pace of the ride will be slow to moderate (10-12mph) and the ride is suitable for all ages. There is one hilly section but the majority of the ride is flat. This excursion is suitable for either road bikes or mountain bikes. The duration of the ride is about 1.5 hrs and will include two rest stops.
We will return to our starting point where Fairhaven will host a BBQ dinner offering both beef and salmon. You will have a chance to sample Fairhaven's renown American Hybrid Wine, Lomanto, and many others. Live music by local artists (acoustic guitar and vocals). Both the food and the wine are discounted to BB members. The Menu will be even split between grilled Salmon sandwiches and Beef brisket.
