Sunday Morning Johnson City Group Ride

Linda will be leading a group ride to Johnson City this Sunday (7/21). Meet up at 8:15am at Thunderbird Coffee (1401 Koenig Lane). The group will leave at 9am. Helmets are required. Gas up before leaving Thunderbird. This ride is for scooters that can maintain at least 55 mph on long hills. Total mileage will be about 130 miles.

From Linda’s ASC Facebook Group post: “This is a variation of Eric’s ride to Johnson City from a few months ago. From Thunderbird we’ll take 2222 west with a possible detour, then get onto 620 and take another detour before we get to Hamilton Pool Road. Depending on the time, we may take a quick butt break at RR12 and 3238. In Johnson City we’ll eat lunch at Pecan Street Brewing and return to Austin via Fitzhugh Road.”

We hope to see you on Sunday morning!
