TUESDAYS & THURSDAYS VIOLET CROWN RIDE - Temporarily suspended due to COVID-19
Date & Time: Tuesday & Thursday @ 7:00AM Leave From: Mellow Johnny’s Bike Shop Duration: ~2 Hours, 16-18mph
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 (SHORT & LONG) - Temporarily suspended due to COVID-19
Date & Time: Saturday @ 8:30AM Leave From: 12601 Tech Ridge Blvd (La Tapatia Taco - Southeast corner of Tech Ridge/ E. Palmer) Duration: ~4 Hours, 17-20mph
The Bagel Ride was started around 1992 by Bill Reims and Ted Dunbar (Bill and Ted’s Excellent Adventure) and is open to all riders that love riding their bicycle. There are two groups, both of which roll out together, and then split at the store stop. The Short Ride is usually 50-60 miles, and the Long Ride is usually 75-85 miles. Both rides proceed with a 2x2 echelon and are social at times and race pace at others, but tend to stay at a steady tempo without lots of surges. This is one of the best group rides in town! Currently led by Robert, The Bagelmeister. The Short Bagel is lead by David.
VIOLET CROWN SUNDAY RIDE - Temporarily suspended due to COVID-19
Date & Time: Sunday @ 8:15AM Leave From: Mellow Johnny’s Bike Shop Duration: ~3 Hours, 16-18mph
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.
