Warning for people going to MotoGP this coming weekend

Just wanted to let everyone know that I would highly recommend leaving Friday if you are going to Austin, Tx for the COTA race. This same weekend the MS150 is going to be going on. It is a 2 day bike ride to Austin. Well there will be thousands and thousands of bicycle riders on the streets of Texas heading to Austin. They will be shutting down some roads., They will be taking up half of the roads and be slowing down traffic quite a bit.

I will be riding in the MS150, Hence the reason I sold my tickets and parking pass. Just want to let the other people going know. So they don't get a nasty surprise by leaving on Saturday and being late. Same thing coming back. There will be LOTS of people in traffic heading back on Sunday. So be prepared for horrid traffic

You'll be fine if you take 290

Then I guess I'd take I-10

Yes I would advise to take I-10. IT will most likely have the least amount a riders and is by far the most dangerous. If there are riders they will be on the feeder. But whatever you do. Don't go up 71 or 77. You will be stuck A LONG time. Probably going to have to go down past and go up 183 which makes the trip long. But go whichever way you choose.

Why not try taking the exact route the MS150 is going. You would average about 16 mph the whole way there!!!! You can call it "Hurricane evacuation nerves preparedness route"
