The Bike Ride

The Deal:  Some friends and I will be leading  a group Mountain Bike ride along the Barton Creek Greenbelt on Friday, October 26th.  The core group will be Brian Hanson and  my groomsmen:
  • Eugene Altwies
  • Chris Caropepe
  • Jason Caropepe
  • Mike Murphy
  • Bucky Smith

Everyone else is invited to join us, but be advised that this is an intermediate level ride.  If you are at all unsure of your ability to complete a 14 mile round-trip ride, which includes several creek crossings, you might want to investigate a more basic ride.

We'll be starting from (and returning to) the Zilker Park trailhead which is near the Playscape Picnic area that we've reserved (for kids & non-bikers).

The Times:

10:00 AM:  Everyone needing a rental bike to meet at the Bicycle Sport Shop.
10:30 AM:  All  riders (rental & local) meet at the Zilker Park Playscape Picnic area.
10:45 AM:  Clip-in & ride.
12:45 PM:  Return to Zilker Park Playscape Picnic Area.
12:45 PM - 2:00 PM: Hang out and enjoy friends & family.
2:00PM: Return rental bikes to Bicycle Sport Shop

The Bikes:  If you need to rent a bike, contact the Bicycle Sport Shop located on the Town Lake Hike & Bike Trail.

Bicycle Sport Shop

Austin, TX 78704

Of course you can bring your own bike if you want!  Just meet us at the Playscape Picnic area at 10:30 AM.

The Trail:  Barton Creek Greenbelt

The Basic (Easy) Ride:  Both Zilker Park and Bicycle Sport Shop are located adjacent to the Town Lake Hike and Bike trail.  This is an 11 mile smooth gravel path that runs along both the north and south sides of Town Lake.  There are numerous bridges that allow you to cross over the lake.  Just be aware of the joggers and dogs.
