Re: Austin TARA: Monthly ride

Looks like a great time, sorry I missed it. When the boss who just bought you a new truck asks for a favor, you say "yes"

Hopefully I'll see everybody in December.

Re: Austin TARA: Monthly ride

I was planning on it. I haven't actually looked up the ride on satellite, how much of the ride is gravel vs pavement? I think Lime Crick Road itself is paved...

Re: Austin TARA: Monthly ride

Riders,

The monthly Austin ride is on for this Saturday and the weather is forecasted to be nice.

This month's route includes the famed Lime Creek Road - the twistiest road I know of in this part of Texas.

The route is only 146 miles long and is all pavement.

As usual, see the first post in this thread for all the logistical information.

Re: Austin TARA: Monthly ride

Great to ride with everyone today, couldn't have asked fro better weather.

Richard, at the post ride eat and talk, the topic of 2018's ride routes came up. Are you planning on running the same routes as 2017?

I was planning on using the same routes in 2018. When I came up with the 12 routes I worked to a) have as little duplication as possible and b) take into account the likely weather (colder in winter, so shorter rides). Since every month is a different route we will only ride a particular route once per year.

All that being said, I'm open to suggestions for different routes.

Re: Austin TARA: Monthly ride

I second that Gourdhead -- great ride, great weather, and thanks for the trays at Easy Tiger. I will have to get back there some time soon. See you all out on the road.
