Tuesday Night Downtowner

This is a tried and true Tuesday Nighter for a lot of us old timers.  It's been a favorite of many, so we are going to start it up again now that daylight savings time has changed. This will be weekly for those of you that can't make it to Lakeway after work.

Meet on Veterans Parkway, near the ped bridge.  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 otherside.

We'll ride about 20 mile loop to Steck/Balcones via Lake Austin/Exposition/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 is the new map. the start is under mopac at the ped bridge north side of lake.

    Great ride! Nice brisk pace! Had to push a little...well maybe more than a little:)

      I only averaged 13.2, so the pace wasn't crazy fast. There are many nice downhills at the end!

      Hard to say as there is more than a little stop and go. I averaged 14.4 moving average with Strava and a max of 42.3. Some parts are fast and some not so fast. Everyone seems to keep up.

      I didn't even notice it went to 6:15 & thrashed to be there @ 6:00. But it is all good to me.

  • Jackie

    I vote for 6:00.

    • Amy H.

      I agree, 6pm is perfect.

      6pm is perfect for me as well, but I live and work 2 miles away from the Rock... some people actually ride to the start from far away!

      2 · May 15, 2013

  • Kelly G.

    See you all at 6:00 next week...

    4 · May 15, 2013

    Great ride! Perfect pace, let's keep it up in the following weeks! :-D

    I agree. I had go meet the group at Exposition to be on time. Given the traffic, a 6:30 start time is more realistic for those who have career commitments. Otherwise, the route, the pace and the group is fantastic.

    If things go better at the shop than they did yesterday.....

  • Kelly G.

    6:00 always worked before...but I'm cool with the change...
