SRC Weekend Rides – Crystal Falls/Leander & Thunderbird!

Saturday there will be two group ride levels leaving at different times (from Cups & Cones) – Faster Pace and Endurance Pace. We try to accommodate various levels of rider interest and recently there are folks seeking a more moderate paced and less total miles on Saturdays. We hope that this will attract area riders who want to learn group riding at a moderate pace.
• Faster Pace 7:00 am ride will head out northwest to Crystal Falls, around Leander and Brushy Creek for 62 miles at 18-20 mph avg. Get the route here:
• Endurance Pace Group leaves at 8:00 am this week we’ll visit Lakeway and ride the scenic Flint Rock, Serene Hills, and Rough Hollow. The ride will be around 35 miles and 2500 feet of climbing. We will regroup at the bigger climbs. The gradients will be more reasonable than Courtyard was last week! Expect an overall pace around 15 mph. We are going to do our best to make this a NO DROP ride but you are expected to have some basic level of fitness. Route:
After the ride, we meet up at Lakeside for some discounted breakfast tacos, burgers and beer!

We’re bringing back Thunderbird on Sunday for the coffee shop ride. This is an updated ~50 mile route and the ride is “endurance pace” and friendly. This means the entire ride should roughly be about 17mph average and we will try to keep everyone together with a few re-group points, but it is still classified as a ‘drop ride’.
