Bike Month Map [2012-007]
This service and site were envisioned as a way to enable riders from all over the US (and the world) to both find Bike Month events and how to get to the event on a bike. We provide location and date based indexing, filtering by event categories, free form tags, and date ranges. Once you find an event you want to attend, you can enter your starting address and will receive a visual biking route as well as the associated queue sheet. Local bike shops are mapped in the event you need a gear or a tune up. Bike corrals are even shown. What is a bike corral? It is a new, to Austin, parking facility made just for bikes. No need to search for on sidewalk parking or a poll, just head to the high volume corral.
Bike-To-Eat Week : reward yourself for being awesome! [2012-008]
This is an incentive program for cyclists. The full discount is provided directly to the cyclist by the participating restaurant as a thank you for riding to the restaurant (and in general) rather than a fundraiser for the Ghisallo Foundation.
The discount is only available to cyclists who arrive at the establishment by bicycle. Each cyclist may be required to show they arrived by bike (helmet, bike lock key, or locked up bike) to receive the discount.
Dine in only. Limit one (1) meal per cyclist, per day. The discount is only valid Sunday May 27th, 2012 through Thursday May 31st, 2012 during normal business hours.
10% discount on your meal (food and alcohol). Strong legs and a healthy cardivascular system.
Austin Wide Women’s Racing Team Ride
This ride is participating in the first Annual Cyclo Femme ride event.
A women only Austin Wide Women’s Racing Team Ride and Cyclo Femme event hosted by the various Austin based women’s racing teams (Austin Flyers, Brain and Spine, Ghisallo Foundation Racing Team, Snapple-ATC, University of Texas, Velossimo, 787 and others) and presented by the Ghisallo Foundation. We will meet at Dolce Vita (4222 Duval Street) for coffee around 8am with a 9am (sharp) roll out to Manor and back (~34 miles). Please expect to have averaged 15-16mph by the end of the ride with stretches at higher sustained speeds. There will be a rest/water stop in Manor and you should be back in Austin around noon. This is not a “no-drop” ride, but we will do our best to keep the group together.
You do not need to have a USA Cycling racing license or be on one of the listed teams to participate, but you should be comfortable riding in an organized group (double paceline) and be able to manage the distance comfortably. This is not a no-drop ride but we will do our best to keep the group together. Riders are expected to be on a road bike (no fixed gears, TT bikes, etc), have brought their own food, water, tools, and have the skills to handle most basic mechanicals (flat tires, etc). Helmets are required and headphones are not allowed. Be sure to have you bike aired up and running smoothly the night before the ride.
The return: Manor to Austin (14 miles)
