There are two groups, both of which roll out together, and then split at the store stop. Short ride is usually 50-60 miles, long ride 75-85 miles. This can be a competitive ride, but tends to stay at a steady tempo, without lots of surges. One of the best group rides in town! Led by Matt Denton.
This is one of the oldest group rides in Austin, setting out every Sunday morning for over 30 years! This ride averages 16-17 mph for 50-60 miles. Riders for this group should have experience riding in groups and understand the etiquette of group riding, be able to change a tire and address minor mechanical issues. Riders should come expecting a challenging road ride and bring the proper equipment. Please don’t wear headphones or plan to ride in your aero bars. We typically ride out against the wind and have a tailwind on the way home, as nature intended. Led by Dave Henderson.
These rides depart every Tuesday and Thursday morning at 7:00 am. This one-and-a-half to two hour ride averages 17-19 mph. Routes vary from southerly, mostly flat terrain, to northwesterly hilly rides, to Westlake, very hilly rides, depending on wind direction and the whims of the group. These rides are meant to provide some steady tempo training hours. Led by Andy Austin.
Wheels down at 7:00 am. Some of our standard routes:
