INFAMOUS BREWERY RIDE – Saturday October 4th at 7:30am at Cups & Cones
We had quite the strange ride last Saturday. It rained the night before and the roads were wet but the turnout was good none the less. The entire group experienced a total of 9 flat tires. Steve Cummings had three flats and a wreck but is fine. Nevertheless, we all managed to have a few beers over at the Oasis Brewing Co. which we hope to make a monthly ride.
This Saturday we can meet at C&C at 7:30am and then ride over to Infamous Brewing Company and then roll out with the Lake Travis Cycling Club at 8:00am. They have a 40 mile route so if you add on the ride to and from Steiner Ranch you will easily be able to add another 10 miles. The will also have post ride beers and tacos. Below are the two routes leaving from Infamous Brewing Company (20 and 40 miler). When we meet at C&C at 7:30am if people don’t want to do that ride we can talk about an alternative ride.

As always there will be an A Group that will average 18 – 20 mph over the entire ride and there will be a B Group that will average 15 – 17 mph. Both groups don’t have designated sweepers so you should have a certain level of fitness to keep up with the respective group.
Reminder: Sign up for the Livestrong Ride on 10/19.
COFFEE SHOP RIDE – Sunday October 5th at 7:30am at Cups & Cones
Join us this Sunday for the SRC Coffee Shop Ride! This is for those wanting to explore options outside of Steiner Ranch or those wanting a nice social/recovery ride.
The group will leave C&C at 7:30 like the other Sunday ride groups, but will target some not-too-far coffee shop for some espresso, biscotti, and socialization. The ride will average around 15-17 mph and should be perfect for those looking for a recovery ride or to extend their range out of Steiner. Each week we will pick a different destination, but they would typically be around 15 miles from C&C. This is a no-drop ride, but you should be able to ride 30-40 miles at a 15-17 mph pace.
BABES (and BROS) on BIKES / RECOVERY RIDE – Sunday October 5th at 8:30am at Cups & Cones
Come join us for the Sunday social Babes (and Bros) on Bikes / Recovery Ride. This user-friendly ride is intended for beginners looking to gain some experience and/or riders wanting a later start or easy Sunday cruise. Riders meet at Cups & Cones for ‘wheels down’ at 8:30am. This is a ‘no drop’ ride, meaning the group stays together, within the neighborhoods of Steiner Ranch. The route and pace is customized to the level of riders who show up. In general, you can expect a mostly flat course, about 1 hour long varying from 10-20 miles. There will be optional hill climbs for those wanting an extra challenge, and to help beginners set riding goals. You will learn the basics of bicycle safety, riding technique, equipment recommendations, but mostly, you will meet new friends and have FUN! All are welcome! Hope to see you there!
