Location: - Mellow Johnny's Bike Shop
Today's route takes riders to various iconic locations within the city. Distances range from 18-25 miles and include some hill climbing that may challenge some riders.
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. The routes are designed to help riders navigate the city bike routes and other safe bike commuting options.
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 rides 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 ride expectations: helmet, bike in good working condition, water and nutrition, and no headphone/radios. We encourage you to ride to the shop. If driving, please park in the street.
For pre-ride refreshment, meet at Juan Pelota Café 30 minutes before start time.

New Rider Orientation:
New for 2013, Mellow Johnny's will be hosting new rider orientations every Saturday in February! If you are brand new to cycling and would like to learn how to dress, what to bring, and how to ride safely, join us. Our staff will take the time to go over how to get on and off a road bike, how to brake and shift correctly, and how to stay as safe as possible when riding in groups. Other topics will include how to pump up your tires, how to take the wheels on and off, and how to change a flat tire.
New rider orientations will take place at the shop at 9am Feb 2, 9, 16, 23. RSVP to reserve your spot.
New Rider Group Rides:
After the 9am new rider orientation, we will go on a 1hr easy paced group ride at 10am. This ride will get you ready and confident to ride longer distances and be in groups.
