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'.

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!:rider:

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.

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.

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.

I will be there tomorrow. It'll be good to put some faces to some names since this is my first group ride since joining

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 :)

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.

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.

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.

I’ll prefer to go around instead. I’ll join Gina. Also, A friend want to go too but not the river crossing.
