It's a Fourth of July Tradition

Come celebrate a Violet Crown Independence Day tradition with a 60-mile ride out to Lytton Springs. The ride will start at Mellow Johnny's Bike Shop and end back at Republic Square Park for some camaraderie over free BBQ catered by IronWorks, beer from Treaty Oaks, and so much more! There will be four groups leaving 10 minutes apart with different pace options starting at 8am.

Group 1: Leaves at 8:10am, 60-miles, 21+ mph FAST!

Group 2: Leaves at 8:20am, 60-miles, 17-18 mph.

Group 3: Leaves at 8:30am, 60-miles, 17-18mph.

The 60 mile riders will head along this route: https://www.strava.com/routes/13814475

If hustling at 17+ mph for 60-miles is not for you, there will also be a short ride option heading to Buda.

Group 4: Leaves at 8:35am, 35-miles, 14-15mph.

***FAIR WARNING: We will endeavor not to lose anyone. However, you must be self sufficient. The ride is not a “no-drop” ride. Familiarize yourself with the route and know how to change your own tires. Bring enough food and water for several hours in the hot Texas sun.
