Location: Mellow Johnny's Bike Shop
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. Group 1: 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.
Group 2: this is our traditional Scout-a-Route ride. 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!
Route: It 's a north route that combines some of our favorite roads in new directions and combinations with a slight deviation of exploration. That's rigth, a kerfuffle.
General group ride expectation: helmet, bike in good working condition, water and nutrition, flat changing tools, and no headphones/radios. We encourage you to ride your bike to the shop. If you drive, please park in the street.
For pre-ride coffee or snack, meet at Juan Pelota Café a half hour before ride time.
