This ride is a great fit for the intermediate rider who has spent some time on the bike riding in groups and on urban roads, but is looking for a bit more challenge in distance and speed. This no drop, co-ed ride averages 16-17mph and covers on average 30-35 miles on in-town bike routes and/or on roads with low to moderate traffic. Riders for this group should have experience riding in groups, be able to change a tire and address minor mechanical issues and understand the etiquette of group riding.
MOTR will be treat riders to the Fruit Loop route. This 30-mile route will take you out to Loop 360 heading north then back into town via Shoal Creek Blvd. Don’t let the “short” distance fool you as this route has some challenging hills, great hill country views to distract you from the heavy breathing and fun decents that will put a smile on your face.
General group ride expectation: helmet, bike in good working condition, water and nutrition, flat changing tools, and no headphones. We encourage you to ride your bike to the ride. If you do drive, please park in the street.
For pre-ride coffee or snack, meet at Juan Pelota Café a half hour before ride time.
