RIDE THE CAR-FREE WALNUT CREEK TRAIL--STILL EARLIER!
OK, we are going to ride the very mellow car-free Walnut Creek trail. We leave from Don's Automotive on South First, meet8:15, WHEELS DOWN 8:30 Five miles to the trail head, trail is about 10-15 miles out. (??) So about 32 miles total. BUT, you can fall in at the Govalle Park parking lot on Bolm Rd. alternatively. Please RSVP with comment posted if that is your intention and be there with bike unloaded before 9:00, as those coming from Don's on South First should be coming through no later than that. Until we are all together, let's stay in touch by posting comments to the ride. If we have unanimous agreement we can go past the trail end to Manor or even beyond. We will stay as a group. Please be able to ride B-/B or better. Hill factor: LOW. Hope for nice weather and a great car-free ride -- much, but not all, in the woods! OK -- here is a link to how we will get there from Don's Automotive. http://www.mapmyride.com/routes/view/533600554 Gayla and I look forward to your joining us.

What we're about

Public Group

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!

Let's roll!
