Re: Austin TARA: Monthly ride

Riders,

the 1st Saturday ride is this week.

And this month's ride is particularly noteworthy because we are riding across the mighty James River. See the first post in this thread for more details and to download the GPS tracks.

Re: Austin TARA: Monthly ride

Is there a go around? I'm not sure my tires are qualified for this one. Plus with all the rain, I bet it's pretty deep now.

Not true. You would have to be going at least 87mph.

Re: Austin TARA: Monthly ride

OR, WITH A FLUX CAPACITOR AND 88MPH YOU CAN TRAVEL TO A TIME WHEN IT IS DRY AND THEN CROSS IT.

Re: Austin TARA: Monthly ride

I'm there, and bringing some fresh faces from FB, including some out of towners. Should be a good, or at least "interesting" ride. Also, I'm organizing a trip to Bastrop on Sunday for the out of towners, if anyone is interested.

Re: Austin TARA: Monthly ride

With the weather finally cooling off I'm planning on this ride.

Has anyone got a detailed GPX of the route? The GPX link at the beginning of this forum item does not work, and a GPX That I have from Richard G. (Ride 7) just doesn't seem to have enough points.

Hmmm...I'm not sure why the link in the first post wasn't working but I have fixed it now. It will take you to the TXADVRiders webpage where you can find the link to the gpx files. My apologies for the issue.
