Re: Austin TARA: Monthly ride

Here is the link to the alternate route I'm planning on running. It is 150 miles, has a few miles of gravel roads, and has one slick low water crossing. It also has some of the best twisty roads between Austin and Blanco.

Jan 6 alternate route in .gpx format.

Re: Austin TARA: Monthly ride

My usual offer is in effect, post ride lunch on me at Easy Tiger, for anyone who wants to do an adventure ride through downtown Austin.

Re: Austin TARA: Monthly ride

I am really going to try and make this ride, been far too long since I have been on a bike let alone with the group. I am supposed to be back in time for an afternoon baby shower. Who invites guys to baby showers anyway? I am so confused, maybe my feminine side is becoming predominant !!!

I would ride the twin but she still has a TCK80 up front from Colorado and I don't have time to change it. Guess i will just buzz a little more than normal.

Re: Austin TARA: Monthly ride

You’ll feel so much better after the ride, that you will enjoy the shower. OK, you’ll tolerate it in good spirits!
