NEXT WEEKENDS RIDES

SCIENIC LOOP – Saturday October 12th at 7:30am at Cups & Cones

This Saturday the Steiner Ranch Cycling Club we will be doing the Scenic Loop.  The ride is about 56 miles round trip to and from Cups & Cones.

We will probably have two groups.  We will have a faster group that will average about 18-20 mph and a slow group that will average between 15-16mph.  That being said there is no designated sweeper behind me so you need to keep up with me at a minimum or you will be dropped.

There will be about 3,600 feet of climbing and you can add about another 500 feet by adding the Cuernavaca loop on the way back.  The route basically takes us down 620 to Anderson Mill to Spicewood to Jollyville to Mesa to Mt. Bonnell through Tarrytown on Scenic into downtown.  We will take a fluid break at Mellow Johnny’s and head back to Steiner Ranch via Shoal Creek.

Please print out the below route if you are not familiar with the area.

Ski Shore – Sunday October 13th at 8:30am at Cups & Cones

We are changing the start time for our Sunday ride to 8:30am.  Again the Saturday ride still begins at 7:30am.  We will still leave from Cups & Cones and we will ride out to Ski Shores.  The ride is about 25 miles and about 2,000 feet of climbing.

This is a NO DROP ride and is fun but you should be able to average 14 – 15 mph.   There are always a couple road demons if you want to go a little faster.
