Scout-A-Route: From Mellow's to Nelo's

Date: November 17, 2012 @ 9:00 am to 12:00 pm
Location: Mellow Johnny's - 400 Nueces

We'll head north along the west side of downtown with a stop at Nelo's Cycles near Steck and Mesa. Our ride will provide us with beautiful rolling hills and a downhill return.  The distance is about 20 miles.

These rides are co-hosted by Mellow Johnny’s and the Austin Cycling Association.  This no-drop, co-ed group ride is perfect for the cyclist new to riding or bike commuting, returning to the bike or just looking for a more casual ride.

Thank you for making this a popular Saturday morning ride.  In response, we are now hosting two groups for this ride.  The first group is designed for those who can average 14-16mph for 20-30 miles with one or two regrouping points.  This group follows the same route but is provided with an extended mileage option.

The second group is our traditional Scout-a-route.  We average 12mph for distances between 15-25 miles with regrouping points.

Both ride distances are intended to explore, so leave your heart rate monitor at home, bring some spare dollars for the occasional refreshment stop and enjoy the view.

General group ride expectation:  helmet, bike in good working condition, water and nutrition, flat changing tools, no headphones, and please park in the street

For a pre-ride coffee, meet a half hour before ride time at Juan Pelota’s Café.  If driving to the shop, please park in the street
