Joe and I can't usually join Sunday morning breakfast rides so we're planning a breakfast ride this Saturday morning. Meeting at 8:00 a.m. on the Mendez side of the pool, and riding to Paco's Tacos on 51st. Should be back in time for the MNA meeting at 10. Easy ride… hope folks will join us!

Again this year, Mueller is hosting a fun breakfast stop Friday morning, May 16 for Bike to Work Day. The station is named for beloved neighbor Michael F. Adams who helped many in the neighborhood get on their bikes for transportation and fun.

I hope you'll all stop by if you're out biking to work or school. Stop by between 7:00 - 9:30 a.m. for breakfast, beverages and to visit with other bike commuters. We'll be on the Lake Park corner of the roundabout. Windmill Bicycles will be there to provide mechanical support if needed.

Tell anyone you know biking through Mueller to swing by as well... should be a lot of fun! Citywide info at http://biketoworkaustin.org.

If you're not comfortable riding on the streets, here's a great opportunity for some FREE training!

City Cycling Classes at Local Universities
Free to the public
Register at : http://austincycling.org/classes/citycycling

Thanks to a Community Transformation Grant from the City of Austin/Travis County Health and Human Services department with preventative funds from the Affordable Health Care Act, the Austin Cycling Association will be presenting City Cycling classes at five local universities during the month of September. Registration for these classes is free and open to the public.

City Cycling is a three-hour program developed by League Cycling Instructors to
present basic information about riding in an urban setting. It includes techniques to
avoid crashes and enjoy using a bicycle for transportation. One of the basic tenets
of City Cycling is that cyclists fare best when they act and are treated as drivers of
vehicles. This course is compatible with the Texas Transportation Code and City of
Austin ordinances that apply to bicycle use.

Universities taking part in the grant program include Austin Community College, St.
Edwards University, and University of Texas at Austin.
All of the 3-hour classes will be held in September and will accommodate approximately 30 participants each. Participants do not need a bicycle for this class. Additional on-bike training in traffic situations will be provided for up to 60 students, also in September.

Preston Tyree, Education Director for Austin Cycling Association, said, “We are
excited about the opportunity provided by Austin/Travis County Health and Human
Services to reach out to students and explore things that make bicycles so useful.
This will be a fun class with lots of video clips and discussion. Cycling should be fun,
and can be an integral part of our daily lives.”

SATURDAY morning breakfast ride to Le Cafe Crepe at 2nd & San Jacinto. Leaving from Wooten Park at 8:00 a.m.

A few folks have asked about the route I take to commute downtown, and Cafe Crepe was so good a few weeks ago, we're going to ride down Saturday and I can share my route with a Mueller friend at the same time. Will probably go in on Manor and back via Cherrywood/38.5 (some hills). If you want to join us, we'll circle Wooten Park at 8:00 to pick up riders.

In this corner we have Joe's Bakery on E 7th, which has achieved a whopping 4.5 out of 5 stars on Yelp

And in the other corner we have Cisco's on E 6th, which I think someone suggested last week. Although it has not acheived quite as high of a score on Yelp, it "has lines out the door."

Volunteers to help work the station are needed, or just stop by for a bite to eat on the way to work. I'll be there about 6:30 a.m. to set up and the food should be there by 7:00. Hope we have a great turnout!

I have to wait to ride. I am a bit dehydrated.

Joe & I will circle Wooten park at 2:00 pm and then head down to the trail and over to Starbucks. If you're able to join us, jump in as we circle the park. Weather forecast is cloudy and cool (about 47 deg).

Can't make it out this weekend bc family will be in town for one of my children's birthdays but look forward to joining or suggesting a ride in the future.

Yay... our group is growing! I hope y'all will post to the group when you want some company for a ride. Don't wait for me to organize things!

I am really hoping we'll attract some folks who haven't been on their bikes in years and likely need some encouragement. I was thinking about a beginner ride this weekend - maybe to Starbucks via the Mueller trails about 2:00 on Sunday, if the weather is decent. We could visit over coffee about future rides. What do y'all think?

Love to get and ride early Saturday and Sunday mornings - little traffic, especially Sundays. Downtown is lovely Sunday mornings - cyclists own the road!
