No, it's about 30 minutes into the ride. But for me, It is easier to get there and join in.
The start is still north of Dripping Springs.

Re: Austin TARA: Monthly ride

Seems about 10 decided to sweat it out this morning. The smarter folks probably were over in Cloudcroft NM where the weather is more conducive to riding.

Route was all paved *except* North Lamar between 29th and MLK where it was resurfaced and had 'deep gravel'.

Re: Austin TARA: Monthly ride

How newbie friendly are these rides? I'm pretty unexperienced on dirt/gravel roads, also on regular roads haha. They sound fun tho! Seems like what I've been looking for.

I say they are easy as long as you don't try to keep up with the faster riders. Usually that's not an issue though. Only the water crossings can be a problem, but even seasoned riders get attacked by the ninja moss!

The September ride is all pavement, so I wouldn't worry about it too much. Come on out, put some faces with names, and see part of the Hill Country. The October ride is James River Road, which is as close to a classic Austin area adventure ride as you can get. Lots of dirt roads (maintained), and numerous river crossings, including the semi famous James River crossing. And you get BBQ for lunch.

Re: Austin TARA: Monthly ride

This Saturday is 9-01, who's coming out? I'm planning on attending, but pulling off at 281 and heading into San Antonio to see a friend and maybe grab a tag.

I think it time to dust off the Beta and start riding again. Will meet-up with the group on route at Yeager or Middle Creek.

Re: Austin TARA: Monthly ride

Riders,

A friendly reminder - the first Saturday ride is tomorrow, Sept 1st. This month's ride is the Kendalia loop. While it is all pavement, it does include some exceptionally fun paved twisties.

Re: Austin TARA: Monthly ride

Unfortunately can’t join but I’m very excited to ride with you all soon. I might do this loop by myself next weekend though! I should be in for the October ride with proper tires.

Re: Austin TARA: Monthly ride

So, I'm trying to generate some interest for this ride among the various Facebook groups i'm in. Would there be an issue with creating a FB Event, with the information about the ride and a link to here? I don't want to step on any toes.

The October group ride is the James River ride. Its a personal favorite, and a great introduction to adventure riding for the newbie on a medium to large bike.
I'll of course be on the DRZ chasing Richard
