Half Fast Tuesdays Registration
Jun 19 @ 5:45 pm – 8:30 pm
Half Fast Tuesdays @ Bicycle Sport Shop, Research | Austin | Texas | United States

Meet at 5:45 PM; wheels down at 6 PM. Lights, helmet, hydration, flat repair kit required. We’ll ride approximately 15-miles (about 2.5 hours). This is not a beginner ride. This ride is for intermediate/fast intermediate riders. The route starts and ends at the Research store with 5 miles of mixed hike-a-bike trails, single-track, and pavement to and from Walnut Creek Metropolitan Park. Once at the park we will hit up a few advanced trails. These trails are a mixture of flowing single track, tight turns through the trees with a few rocky sections. We will regroup at the beginning of each section with a brief description of the trail about to be ridden. There will be no water stops for the duration of the ride. In the event of rain, the ride will be canceled.

This ride will repeat every other Tuesday.
