Aug Hill Country Ride

Hey y'all.

I am putting together a ride for the middle of August to go ride some of the Texas hill country SW of Austin. I've mentioned it to a few people who seemed pretty interested, so I figured I'd throw up a thread to see who else would be interested.

It will probably be a whole weekend trip, with a lot of riding, and a couple extra activities to help beat the heat.

If you are interested in going or want more information, drop me a PM with your email address.

Cheers,
Max

Here's a couple pictures of what to expect...

Max,

I am down for sure....I might be able to borrow my buddy's truck so that I might be able to trailer it out there. I have a trailer that will hold 3 bikes and has a huge box on it for storage etc.... Please set dates ASAP so that I can schedule my trip to Chicago for another weekend. Preferably not the weekend of 19th & 20th.

Thanks

ok...for those asking about dates...i am planning on the weekend of August 18-20th.

I am planning on using New Braunfels as the main meeting location, and going out from there.

For those interested...please drop me an email at max.spencer@gmail.com. Its a pain to try and PM everyone...much easier to have everyone on a list and email information.

Here's a small map showing the planned route. Fair warning that we will be covering a lot of ground.
