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 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."

    Also, on the fast section we will not make a turn without stoping to make sure you dont miss it. So, if you get separated you should always stay straight on the road you are on.

      I just wanted the route so that I know where to go. Personally I rather you guys continue to try to drop me because it will make me faster if I try to keep up rather than knowing that I can catch you since you stopped.

      No worries George. There are a few fast sections. Plenty of change for you work on staying with the group. :)

    Guys there is a map. You have to ooen up the entire ride discription and its at the bottom. It an old map. It cover most of main route and will get you back to start. It doesnt include the added section or modified section that have been made since i took over route.

      Great. I'm not familiar with Strava that John mentioned but on my Garmin one of the screens I can scroll thru is a map showing TURN BY TURN of a previously recorded ride. I can also download other Austin rides that others uploaded to the Garmin site. As you can imagine that's a big plus for a DIRECTIONALLY CHALLENGED me.

      Thanks John. Yes you're right. These were very nice guys and very helpful. I'll have to find out the actual route or just try to keep up with the Leader.

      Start by just keeping up with next-to-last dude/dudette :)

    Hey, I dropped off around Anderson. Can somebody post the actual route so that I can stay on the right path next time. Thanks. Great ride otherwise.
