Fall is here so it’s time for a day ride in the Texas Hill Country. I’m leading a dual sport ride into the hill country on Saturday, Nov 8, 2014 and all riders are invited to attend.
This ride is being sponsored by TJ’s Cycles, 2535 Ridgepoint Dr #300, Austin, TX 78754 (please note that TJ’s has moved to a new location). They will be providing breakfast items (donuts, or tacos, or pigs in a blanket, etc) and will open the store early so we can all check out their new location before we depart for the ride. Please make sure to thank Tom and Brian Johnson for their generous support.
Meet at TJ’s Cycles at 8 am with a full tank of gas. Stands up at 9 am.
From TJ’s will will ride west to Llano, via Lime Creek Road, FM 1431, and Park Road 4 for lunch at Cooper’s BBQ.
After lunch our route will include some of the fun dirt roads in Llano county as we take a circuitous route back to Austin.
This ride is suitable for all types of dual sport adventure bikes, with the only caveat being that you need to be able to run 70 mph on pavement since our route includes some state highways.
You will need a range of 115 miles – carry extra gas otherwise.
As required, we will divide into smaller groups (6-8 riders per group) with a ride leader for each group.
Email me at [email]email@example.com[/email] and I will send you the route in both route and track format for use with your GPS. I created the route in basecamp using City Navigator North America 2012.
A bad weather/rain decision will be made Friday evening and posted here.
