Adventure Rider Breakfast Series - Sat 9/29/18 @ 9a Keese's w/ 2-Day ride - TARA/SA


A Texas Adventure Riders Association
San Antonio Chapter Event


Come to breakfast, meet and talk with other like minded individuals. Some will also go for a ride afterward, others ride home, get out on your bike and join us for either or both.

Keese's Cafe & Bar-B-Que
(830) 589-7474
13869 State Hwy 16 N
Medina, Texas



Keese's Map Location

Post Breakfast Ride Information

If anyone is up for a post breakfast ride see the optional route map below. Groups usually take off before 10am. The route is a no host self-guided GPS ride, as the ride is self-guided join a group or lead one.

The post Adventure Breakfast rides are all about fun, camaraderie and being safe. Some groups will focus on completing the route, others will just relax and ride to their cut off time then break off and head home.

A group size of 4 - 6 ride is optimal, with about a maximum of 8, grouping by bike size or desired pace is also beneficial if possible.

Rain date information will be posted on the Thursday before the ride if necessary.
_________________________________________________

2-Day ride overnight-er ride to Lampasas and back - Starting in Medina, overnighting in Lampasas, then to Bandera (just south of Medina) on Sunday.

Route information & Map
*Disclaimer - I build the routes on my computer using the Roads of Texas map book as my guide which is the best and most accurate I have used, but not perfect, and MotoWhere's mapping program. So the route may not be 100% accurate. I do not pre-ride the route, it's an adventure for me also. Road closures, legal status, conditions and routing of county roads can change. If in doubt, turn around and find another route - DO NOT trespass. If a landowner says you are on private property, don't argue, politely ask for directions to get back to a public road.

Saturday 9/29/18 - Medina to Lampasas
Distance: 257.7 miles - There are couple of roads around Lake Buchanan I'm not 100% sure go through as I'm using a 10 year old version of the roads of Texas, Google Maps indicate they connect, we'll see. If not, see above.

__________________________________________________

For those that join my group
When I lead a group I donít stop for lunch in a restaurant, I'm in the office all week so when I'm on a ride I want to spend as much time as possible in nature. I plan a stop about midway out in the country for snacks or a sandwich I bring with me, then of course there are the planned fuel stops.

I stop at every corner without a clear / obvious direction to continue and wait for the entire group and make sure the last rider sees the proper way to go, there is NEVER a need to ride above your comfort level to keep up, we wonít leave you, I encourage riders to spread out to avoid the dust. The daisy chain method also works well, especially when its extremely dusty to keep the group even more spread out, the rider in front makes sure the rider behind makes the corner and so on until the sweep rider makes the corner. As long as the rider in front takes responsibility for the rider behind no one gets lost. However please tell someone in the group if your plans change and you decide to break off from the group, that prevents you being searched for.

Safety and rider etiquette
Having your emergency contact information on you and having that information readily available is critical. This is important not just for group rides but everyday. Even though you may have a buddy along on the ride you may get separated on the road.
At minimum:
Name
Your street
Your town, state, Zip code
Driver's license # & state
Emergency contact
Emergency Phone
I taped mine on the bottom of the visor of my dual sport helmet, I also taped another on the back side of my fairing near the dash. The important thing is that it is easy for anyone to find.

Respect landowners and other road users, slow down and ride quietly when passing, people, vehicles, animals, homes, etc.

I believe I heard that this is around the official start of "fall", so it will be a nice cool ride with beautiful foliage and deep forest scenery.

Nice cool ride? Wishful thinking, and I hope you're right.

I might be able to make this one, but most likely for just the ride up. I'll try, anyway.

I just had to make a date change to Saturday 9/29/18 due to work.

So now this will be the 5th weekend, not the traditional 3rd...

Kickstands up at 9 in Medina or breakfast at 9? This sounds like a great ride but Iím 2hrs south so gotta plan just getting to the starting line.

Also, % pavement vs not pavement ?

Breakfast at 9a or earlier.

Groups usually take off before 10a.

Percentage of dirt, I don't know. I never ridden the route before. I built it using the The Roads of Texas map book. Unfortunately more and more hill country county roads are getting paved. Rode 2 in Medina county on the last ride that are freshly paved.

Dan,

I don't know the people who own the cafe.

I do have room for a couple of vehicle combos in Castroville.
