Click here to go to the page that has the alternate route. The link to the file is at the bottom of the page and is named Feb 3, 2018 alternate route. The file is in gpx format for use with a gps.

Re: Austin TARA: Monthly ride

The first Saturday Austin monthly ride is this weekend.

Our March ride is the Willow City Loop course and includes the first dirt of the year (Sandy Creek). My guess is that with the amount of rain we've had over the past few weeks that there will be water at the 2 low water crossings over Sandy Creek. This month's course is 139 miles in length and is suitable for any dual sport/adventure bike.

I recommend grabbing lunch at Oli's Kitchen in Round Mountain on the loop back. Gas is available from the convenience store next door to Oli's.

Re: Austin TARA: Monthly ride

Hey Richard, I think I will actually be free this coming Saturday and would love to see if I can ride anymore. With any luck I will see you this coming Thursday at twin peaks and again this Saturday!

Re: Austin TARA: Monthly ride

+1 for Oli's. JT and I were impressed with this place.

Sadly, I'm pretty sure I will be working Saturday:'(

Re: Austin TARA: Monthly ride

Sound great. I'll review the route and try to figure out the best place to hook up with the group.

Re: Austin TARA: Monthly ride

Is this route "ADV" bike friendly? or would a Smaller bike be a better choice?
Keith, do you know where you are meeting the group? I am leaving from Bulverde area if I can make the trip.

OOPS, just reread the description. I will try it on an ADV bike. What the heck

Re: Austin TARA: Monthly ride

I'm going to hook up with the group just past Johnson City at 1323 and 281. I'll get there around 9:30 - 9:45.

I'm pretty sure 962 is on the Route back home. Richard, can you confirm this?

Yes, that is correct. We are riding 962 back to Austin.



For the ride out in the morning, Kman's best bet is to intercept us at 281 & 1323.

Re: Austin TARA: Monthly ride

Riders,

I'm still deciding if I will be attending Saturday's ride. If I do, I am adding an additional 60 miles of a mix of dirt and pavement. I'll grab lunch in Castell and refuel in Llano.

Here's the link to the gpx file in case anyone else wants to ride this route. This file is just the additional 60 miles. You will also need the standard March 139 mile route loaded on your GPS. These 2 files together form the entire 200 mile route.

Re: Austin TARA: Monthly ride

As Gourdhead said, we meet and go. We usually stop for lunch though.

If you want to arrive early for breakfast, there is a Jim's restaurant next door and they have a good breakfast.
