TUESDAYS & THURSDAYS VIOLET CROWN RIDE
Date & Time: Tuesday & Thursday @ 7:00AM Leave From: Mellow Johnny’s Bike Shop Duration: ~2 Hours, 16-18mph (26-29 kph)
Riders should have experience riding in groups, be able to change a tire and address minor mechanical issues. Routes will vary from southerly, mostly flat terrain, to northwesterly hilly rides depending on wind direction and the whims of the ride leader. These rides are meant to provide some steady tempo training hours.
The Bagel Ride was started around 1992 by Bill Reams and Ted Dunbar as "Bill and Ted’s Excellent Adventure." Bill passed away in March 2014 and the ride has continued to be one of the best group rides in town. Usually 50-60 miles (80-100 km), this ride is social at times and race pace at others, but tends to stay a steady double paceline without many surges. Currently led by David Serrins, The Bagelmeister.
Date & Time: Sunday @ 8:15AM Leave From: Mellow Johnny’s Bike Shop Duration: ~3 Hours, 16-18mph (26-29 kph)
This is one of the oldest group rides in Austin, meeting every Sunday morning for over 30 years! Riders should understand the etiquette of group riding, be able to change a tire and address minor mechanical issues. Wheels down at 8:15am. We encourage you to ride your bike down to the shop. If you do drive, please park on the streets.
