This Saturday offers yet another crazy amount of cycling goodness in addition to all the other regular rides. You’ve got not one but TWO huge bike swaps going on plus trail work, riding and camping with the Austin Ridge Riders AND the Tour Das Hugel for those who want to ride 14,000 vertical feet around Austin for a t-shirt. Also, don’t forget the League of Bicycling Voters meeting is Tuesday night with officer elections. This is your chance to get more involved in local advocacy.
Here’s a quick run down of recommended events for the coming week from our comprehensive calendar of allcycling events. Thanks to Jason at ATXBS for letting us know about some events we couldn’t find elsewhere. As always, if there is an event you know about that’s not on our calendar contact us, and we’ll add your event on and possibly add it to the weekly round up.

Formerly the Thursday Night Road Ride, this after dark fitness ride returns after a 7 month hiatus. All levels of riders are welcome on this 20-25 mile night ride with stops to regroup. This is a “friendly drop” ride. This means that if we can see your lights, you won’t drop be dropped. Lights are mandatory and helmets strongly recommended. Come early and enjoy drinks and food before and after the ride.
