Wednesday Night DT ride to eat!!

welcome to the wed downtown ride to eat ride!!

ride is 24mi. route is a loop around austin. which starts on the westside. it goes north from start though neighborhood along MoPac to anderson ln. then heads east over to springdale. then south on springdale back to downtown. ride avg is bout 14-17mph depending on weather and who shows up. also at 17mph avg that means there will be fast sections that can get to 22-28mph. if the strong riders are hot dogging. dont worry this is a no drop ride. we regroup on these sections. also if the pace is still to fast someone will fall back and ride with you.

this is a night ride so come prepared with lights!! of course dont forget the usual stuff, helmet, and flat repair.

also this is a ride to eat ride. which means as we get closer to downtown, well will stop to eat somewhere, possibly before returning to start. if a place is chosen where you would need locks. well will advise in a comment with the destination. for those that dont wont to eat or have the time. there is a map provided. plus there is usually a veteran rider thats heading back to start.

this is a great ride. so, come out and enjoy good company and good food!!

Let's ROLL!

    Sorry, I just realized that my class ends at 5pm. It doesn't look like that I will be able to join.

    Ha ha ha boys and girls, eat your hearts out!! Riding back down Spearfish Canyon w Bob this afternoon, 64* f. Hanging out on his deck he had to get a jacket and I am fixing to do the same. Will post pix and Bob sends greetings.

      So the bike Bob put together for me to ride is a real Frankenbike, steel frame 26" MTB converted to 700x38! He is proud that he has less than $20 total in it. :) Its actually very comfortable, handles well, and makes sense because we ride on some crappy pavement and tomorrow ride on 30-50 miles of gravel rails-trail.
