May 3rd and 4th Rides!

Shiner GASP Ride!
Shiner GASP Ride!

Jason Yunker did a great job of recapping last Saturday’s ride and Steve added some flavor to the recap as well.  Overall sounded like a great ride for everyone.

Derrick Jones fired out an email with a recap on the Sunday J&A Steakhouse ride which was also really fun.  I was told that the breakfast will no longer be 50% off and they will only have brunch buffets which may or may not be discounted.  That will be effective starting in May.

The CAPTAIN AMERICA kits should be here any day.  Keep your eyes peeled for an announcement.

REMINDER:  Check our calendar of events page out at www.steinerranchcycling.com as there are many awesome rides coming up. This upcoming weekend is the Shiner Ride.  Other popular rides many of us are going to do is the Real Ale Ride and the Atlas Ride.

Join thousands of cyclists as they ride 100 miles through small towns and scenic byways to the historic Spoetzl Brewery in Shiner, Texas.  If you are interested in registering please do click here to register SHINER GASP.

MYSTERY RIDE – Saturday May 3rd at 8:30am at Cups & Cones

If you are not doing the Shiner Ride please join us this Saturday for a local ride.  We will meet at Cups & Cones and vote on the ride for the morning.  The routes will vary between 40 – 60 miles and group A will average between 17 – 20 mph and group B will average between 15 – 18mph.  Just show up and we can figure out the best route based on the skill sets and interest of the group.  Please note that while group B will be riding at a reasonable pace it will still require that you have a certain level of fitness and it is still intended for experienced riders that are comfortable riding with a group.  There is no designated sweeper.

Rookie Tri – Sunday May 4th

Just like it sounds a triathlon for rookies.  It is a 11 mile bike ride, 2 mile run and 300m swim.  Go to the following link to sign up.


SUNDAY SOCIAL RIDE – Sunday May 4th at 8:30am at Cups & Cones

On Sunday the Steiner Ranch Cycling Group (SRC) will roll out from Cups & Cones at 8:30 am this Sunday morning for either the Tour de Steiner Ranch or Ski Shores or some other mystery ride.  Typically we stay in Steiner Ranch.  This is a NO DROP RIDE.





March 22nd and 23 rd Rides!

Get your green on!  Remember everyone is Irish on St. Patrick's Day!
Get your green on! Remember everyone is Irish on St. Patrick’s Day!

TRIPLE B’s has been cancelled three weekends in a row due to weather so let’s tempt fate once again.  Since the Triple B beer sacrifice did not work last time lets up the ante by having some at least PR on TRIPLE B.  Brice has generously offered up once again to sponsor a post ride Triple B’s beer social along with some eats.  Maps and details will be handed out pre ride on Saturday before you all roll out from Cups & Cones.

As Thomas mentioned in a prior email, last Saturday the Triple Bs was cancelled due to weather but 11 riders still made it out for a 30+ mile ride.  I was also told that Sunday some hard core riders showed up to ride in the bad weather and 50% of them were women.  Women Power!  Keep it up ladies.

Update on kits is that Brandon O’Keefe has handed the ball (ie kit design) over to Descente Cycling and when I get back to Austin tomorrow (Monday) I’ll place our order and we should have those kits in about 3 weeks after the order is placed.   

REMINDER:  Check our calendar of events page out at www.steinerranchcycling.com as there are many awesome rides coming up including the LBJ100, MS150, Real Ale and many others.

Triple B’s – Saturday March 22nd at 8:30am at Cups & Cones

The Triple B’s ride is approximately a 52 mile bike ride that will roll out from Cups & Cones at 8:30 am morning. The ride is scenic and it follows around the lake via lime creek and volente and there is about 2,100 feet of climbing.

We will bike out from Steiner Ranch and make the climb out to the 620 via the Steiner Ranch Steakhouse route then head down the 620 and make a left on Anderson Mill Rd. and then another left on 2769 (turns into Volente Rd) and head into Volente Village.  When we get to Volente Village we will make a right turn up the hill on Lime Creek Rd. towards the TRIPLE B’s.  After we get to the end of Lime Creek we make a right on Anderson Mill Rd a left on Zepplin and then a right on Sun Chase and then make our way over to Lakeline and then out to Crystal Falls Golf Course and then back to 620 via Anderson Mill and back to Steiner Ranch.  Cross the 620 onto Steiner Ranch Blvd. back down to Cups & Cones.

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 fast group travelling about 15-17mph.  Again there is no designated sweeper.

This ride is for experienced riders that have ridden with groups at high speeds.

Please see the course below:
