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. 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.
Route: Today's 25 mile ride will take us through wonderful bike friendly Austin neighborhoods like Old Enfield, Tarrytown, and Allendale.
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 to the shop. If you do drive, 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
