Shop ride Sundays: Hills for Hugel

One of the big events of the cycling calendar in Austin is the unofficial Tour das Hugel. If you have not heard of it, it's easily the hardest ride in Austin, a century which is two loops with the hardest hills in town. We won't be endorsing or supporting the ride, after all it's completely unofficial.

However, to get you started, we've scheduled a hills ride for this Sunday(10/9). Tammy Metzger and Tempo Multisport will lead out the ride and ride with you to help you understand how to ride hills better. The No-drop will ride out to 360 and back, with James, Hugo and Elizabeth. There are no real hills on the no-drop, but you will have to change gears.

I'm away again this week, so the Saturday Austin 70.3 course ride will be a pick-up ride. If you want to ride the course, show up ready to ride at 7 a.m., there will be a number of groups and individuals riding, pick someone who you can ride with and follow the yellow arrows.

Enjoy the cooler temps, ride safe! ++Mark.
