Shop ride Sundays: Steiner time

As per the schedule, and notwithstanding the recent fires up at Steiner, this is to confirm that this weeks shop ride on Sunday will return to the Steiner Ranch Steakhouse on Sunday, ride strats promptly at 8:30 a.m. We will have the normal ride groups, advanced, Intermediate which will split in two, and no-drop.

This ride, more than any other on our schedule is a great day to try a faster group. If you start with the advanced group and can't keep up, you can fall back and wait for the intermediate, if you start with the intermediate and can't keep up, if you drop back before FM620 can join the no-drop ride, or if after that, you can simply turn around and make your way back, and you'll have the advanced and intermediates and no doubt others to follow along. If you do decide to try a faster group, please ride at the back, it is safer for everyone until you can keep up comfortably.

After the ride, Sid Steiner and the Steakhouse will once again be hosting us for half-price brunch. As always, please be patient with the staff, having a 100+ lycra clad athletes drop-in presents unique challenges and don't forget to thank them appropriately. See y'all Sunday! ++Mark.

p.s. I won't be leading an Austin 70.3 ride this Saturday as I'm racing in the San Marcos Roundtable triathlon. If you are interested in riding the course, be at the Walter E Long Park entrance at 7 a.m. ready for wheels down as soon as it is safe/light.
