RECAP LAST WEEKEND
Saturday about six of us from Steiner Ranch Cycling Club went out to Dustin’s house in Georgetown to ride some country roads around Lake Granger and celebrate Dustin’s 40th Birthday. The route was really nice and we saw a lot of cows and farms. That being said, Jason hit a big deep patch of gravel going about 19-20 mph and went down. He is fine except for some nasty road rash. He cracked his helmet but other than that mechanically he was able to finish up the ride strong.
Sunday only one rider showed up to ride so we just stayed in Steiner Ranch.
The Strava highlights for last week by category are as follows:
Distance Robert Brown 140 Miles
Elevation Hicham B. 11,240 Feet
Average Speed Cody Summer 18.5 Mph over 75 Total Miles

NEXT WEEKENDS RIDES
AVERY RANCH ROUTE – Saturday November 2nd at 8:30am at Cups & Cones
On Saturday the Steiner Ranch Cycling Group will be heading out for an approximately 55+ mile bike ride that will roll out from Cups & Cones at 8:30 am morning and we will head out to AVERY RANCH and head back via Crystal Falls.
The ride is going to be fairly flat and fast. While we do our best to keep the group together you will need to have a certain level of riding experience and conditioning to stay with the main group or else you may get left behind. There is no designated sweeper for our Saturday ride.
There will be a faster group travelling at speeds of 18-20 mph over the course of the route and we will also have less faster group travelling about 16-17mph. Again there is no designated sweeper.
TOUR DE GREUNE
This year is the 30th anniversary ride and you can learn more about this ride at our event page. I think most of us will be doing the Avery Ranch Ride but if you want to try something different this ride is really cool.
Ski Shore – Sunday November 3rd at 8:30am at Cups & Cones
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.
