Jester King Brewery All Clubs Ride

Saturday it was reported that at least 7 SRC riders attended the Altas Ride and I heard it was a nice ride with the only complication being the delayed arrival of bicycles. About 14 showed up for the Dam Loop ride from the C&C.

Sunday we had a big group for the Tour de Cure kick off bike ride which left the Hula Hut. Breakfast and lunch was served. If you have not joined our team please do so at the following link. There are distances ranging from 12 to 100 miles. http://main.diabetes.org/goto/TeamBeef

JESTER KING  BREWERY ALL CLUBS RIDE– Saturday June 7th at 8:30am

We would like to invite you to join us for the JESTER KING BREWERY RIDE II.   This JESTER KING BREWERY RIDE is a FREE ride that originally started by Steiner Ranch Cycling and TRG with the spirit of bringing Austin cycling clubs together for a fun ride and then some pizza and beer. The more the merrier so invite anyone you wish.   The ride is 55 miles and starts and finishes at the Jester King Brewery. The ride will begin at 8:30am and it will be an out and back from Jester King Brewery on Fitzhugh Road to Johnson City and back. There are no turns so there is no way you should get lost even if you are directionally challenged. All intermediate and experienced riders are welcomed and we ask you to wear your club Jersey. We will have a really quick announcement before the ride regarding the route, safety and we will want to give an opportunity for all the clubs to shout out their club affiliation. Please spread the word about this ride to any clubs you might think would be interested in this ride. The route for the bike ride is as follows: http://goo.gl/maps/0nGRD Again, the ride will be about 55 miles with about 4,000 feet of climbing. Average speeds will range from 12 mph up to 21 mph. If you don’t want to ride the full 55 miles you can turn back at any point. To get directions to Jester King or learn more about the brewery please visit http://jesterkingbrewery.com/contact/ It can be a little tricky to find so please try to get there a little early. We will have people standing outside but there are two entrances but only one of them will get you into the staging area.

November 16th (Jester King Brewery) and 17th Rides

Jester King Brewery Ride!
Jester King Brewery Ride!


Saturday we had about 11 riders that showed up for the Scenic Ride downtown to Mellow Jonny’s.  The morning was a list cold and wet but it cleared up a bit and we had nice weather for most of the ride.  We really had a nice ride but we did have two spills.

Nilson fell over at a really slow speed and is totally fine except for a little black mark on his nice snow white kit.  The horror!  Cody Summer on the other hand had a spill descending Mt. Bonnell and came around a turn at fast speeds and came into a turn a little fast and gliding off the road into the side of the cliff.  He has some minor bruises and scrapes but is totally fine.  It was reported that his bike is doing well too as I know most of you were asking about the bike.

Other than the two spills the ride was really fun.  The entire group stayed together for this ride and we averaged about 16.5mph.

We should also note that Dustin Dihn completed the Tour das Hugel which is about 110 miles and about 12,000 feet of climbing.  Congrats Dustin!

Sunday there were about 9 riders that showed up and we rode out to Ski Shore and back.    We all stayed together for the entire ride.


The Strava highlights for last week by category are as follows:

Mile Eater (distance)                     Thomas Lea              152.6 Miles
Billy Goat (elevation)                     Dustin Dihn              16,438 Feet
Speed Demon (avg. speed)         Andrew Struck        19.6 Mph / 105.2 Total Miles


You will have three rides to choose from this Saturday.  Steiner Ranch Cycling Club Ride, Tour das Hugel and Thirsty Planet
