Saturday June 28th [Scenic] and June 29th [Social/Ladies] Rides!

Saturday we did the Triple B’s and had about 17 riders in attendance.  We all stuck together for most of the ride.  The group did split but it was because one group wanted to do more distance.  So we had a 55 mile group and a 45 mile group with it splitting pretty much down the middle.

Sunday was the Steiner Ranch Steakhouse ride.

Tour De Cure  Please make sure you join our Tour de Cure team which we do every year and it has been tons of fun.  Cycling, Food and Beer and all for a great cause: http://main.diabetes.org/goto/TeamBeef

Farmers Market  www.512MarketKitchen.com is a food delivery service that sources its ingredients from local farmers and it is prepared by an Austin chef.  The best part is that you can place your order online and pick it up each week on the way home at www.resolutefitness.com and pop it in the oven and you can feed your family for half the cost of going out.  It is totally worth doing at least one meal per week and in the process you will help out local farmers, consume great food and support your local farmers market run that is owned and operated by our own Steiner Ranch resident Richie Romero.

NEXT WEEKENDS RIDES

AUSTIN SCIENIC LOOP – Saturday June 28th at 7:30am at Cups & Cones

This Saturday the Steiner Ranch Cycling Club we will be doing the Scenic Loop.  The ride is about 60 miles round trip from Cups & Cones to MJ’s and back.

The ride will start at Cups & Cones and we will grind it out of Steiner Ranch via the Steiner Ranch Blvd hill up to 620.  We will take the 620 down to Anderson Mill Road and make a right on Spicewood.  Then we will work our way through a few neighborhoods and end up on Jollyville and work our way down Jollyville through the Domain and will cross 360 and get onto Mesa up Mt. Bonnell and then ride through Terry Town and follow Scenic route along Lake Austin Blvd down to Mellow Johnny’s for a break.

There are a few alternatives on how to get home.  Sometimes the group will go back via 360 then Bee Caves back to Steiner Ranch via 620.  Another route is back via Shoal Creek but instead of heading back down Mesa some will go Spicewood Spring and around.  Just show up and someone we can all ride down to MJ together then everyone can figure out which route they want to take home.  For sure someone will be going back the Shoal Creek route below:

Please print out the below route if you are not familiar with the route.

ROUTE 1 (on the way downtown to MJ):

On the way back there are two routes.  I’ll be taking the Shoal Creek route but many go the Bee Caves route.  You will get to choose.

We will probably have two groups.  We will have a faster group that will average about 18-20 mph and a slower group that will average between 15-17mph.  That being said there is no designated sweeper behind me so you need to keep up with me at a minimum or you will be dropped.

SOCIAL AND LADIES GROUP RIDE – Sunday June 29th at 8:30am at Cups & Cones

Come join us for our Sunday Social and Ladies Group Ride.  This ride is intended for beginner cyclist that want to ride in a beginner friendly environment.  The route will be about 10 miles and all within Steiner Ranch.  Cheryl Campbell will lead the ride and is an excellent ride leader and can help you get comfortable riding.  You still need to know how to ride a bicycle and should be able to have the fitness level to ride 10 miles.  This is a no drop ride so you don’t need to worry about how fast you are.  Both men and women are welcomed.  We are calling this a Social and Ladies group ride because we would like to see more women come out and ride and Cheryl will be helping women overcome some of the initial challenges of riding.

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

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.
