Tuesday Night North Austin Social Ride
Join North Austin Social Bicycling 7:30 p.m. every Tuesday for a spin around North Austin. We'll be going about 10 miles at a social pace, stopping for a break at a park, and ending at a great bar. We ride rain or shine with wheels down about 8 p.m.
WHERE AND WHEN: We meet at Balcones Community Park (http://austinparks.org/apfweb/park.php?parkId=202)
Get there around 7:30 p.m. for some social time. We take off around 8 p.m. We end the ride at a bar usually around 9:30 p.m. for snacks and drinks.
WHAT TO BRING: Helmet, lights, a good U-Lock, ID, some common sense, a basic knowledge of how to operate a bicycle, and cash if you plan to eat or drink during or after the ride.
Inspired by the way Social Cycling Austin conducts rides, we ride as traffic and not against it. We obey traffic signals/road signs, yield the right of way, let cars pass, and we do not block intersections. We strive to be courteous to both our fellow cyclists and vehicular traffic on the road. Please listen to the ride leaders who are volunteering to help lead the ride safely; they are some nice folks and have your best interest in mind.

REMINDER: The goal is to create a safe environment for all cyclists and reach the destination without injury. We cannot control, nor would we want to, every riders’ behavior. We strongly encourage personal responsibility on all rides; it is up to YOU to maintain safe conduct for yourself and those around you. If you choose to ride with us YOU accept the risks inherent in riding a bicycle in a large group of other cyclists of varying skill levels as well as being in close proximity to vehicular traffic.
