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'.

Maybe next time we’ll have 5 red ATs on the ride

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.
