What we're about
Welcome to AustinCyclingMeetup.com, your friendly neighborhood "low key" recreational cycling group!
Austin Cycling Meetup group is not a hard core anything. We're a little bit road warriors, a little bit social cyclists, and a whole lot community builders. We all just love riding our bikes and want friends to ride with.
Most of our regular calendar meetups are South Austin/Westlake/Bee Cave/Lakeway routes. And due to the desire for variety and the members that have joined us we also venture to Dripping Springs, Parmer Road, Pflugerville and the surrounding hill country for charity rides. So we're kind of all over Austin!
If you're nervous about riding because you just learned where to place your feet on the pedals, no worries. Most of our rides are no drop and we're happy to have an excuse to stop and chat at the top of that hill waiting on the others. Chances are next time around it will be one of us.
And equally true that if you want to kick it, we have century riders that will ride out front with you or add some extra miles/hills with you. We're really all about the fun, building our skills and the chance to stay fit. We truly have all levels of riders.
BEFORE YOU JOIN A RIDE: please take a moment to read the road safety rules of our club (http://www.meetup.com/Austin-Cycling-Meetup/pages/Our_Cycling_Safety_Principles_%28PLEASE_READ%29/). We follow Austin Cycling Association protocols. If you're not sure about your ride level, please read this description (http://www.meetup.com/Austin-Cycling-Meetup/pages/About_our_riding_group_levels/) of our ride levels before you join us. Or contact me by email.
Mountain bikers that prefer trail rides, please meander over the Austin Mountain Biking Meetup and join Ken Sinclair's group. We regularly welcome mountain bikers on our road rides and social rides, but no longer host trail rides since our member Ken is doing such a bang up job there.
Check out our photo albums for proof of just how much fun you'll have riding with us. Check those nerves about your riding skills, equipment, or style right at the end of your driveway and come on!
