Saturday was reported to have a pretty good turnout. Everyone mostly stayed together for the Avery Ranch loop, but the group split at Parmer and Avery Ranch so that some could go on to do almost 80 miles by adding on the newer section of Ronald Reagan as well as Liberty Hill. Although the group was rained on, they had a blast averaging near 20mph over the entire ride.
Sunday started off with nasty weather reports and only 5 of riders attended for a very short, wet ride.
Please mark your calendar for June 7th as we will be doing the Jester King Brewery ride again. It is going to be a lot of fun and it is an all Clubs ride so we hope to have all Clubs in Austin in attendance. For more details go to the Events Calendar www.steinerranchcycling.com
Reminder that the Traffic meeting at the Steiner Ranch Elementary school this Thursday. Hope you can join. They will probably eliminate the shoulder of the road and not provide any pedestrian nor bicycle access.
This Saturday there is the Awesome Atlas Ride which many of the club riders are going to be doing. I’m going to stick around Steiner Ranch so if you want to stay local please meet at Cups & Cones and we can come up with a local route.
