Although you can take whatever route you'd like, we have provided a suggested route. This route will be roughly 64 miles. View the route on Ride with GPS.
Starting at Lamar, ride through Rollingwood to connect to 360, and then continue west on 2244 toward the first stop, our new Bee Cave store, located at 12005 Bee Cave Road. Pay close attention so that you don't pass the store. The store is located on the south side of 2244, which requires you to cross 2244. You will most likely need to stop in the shoulder/bike lane before crossing. Signal and call-out as you are slowing so that the cyclists behind you aware that you are stopping. Proceed with caution as vehicles travel at high speeds on this road.
After the first stop, which is about 15 miles in, the route heads back out on 2244 for a moment before cutting behind the Hill Country Galleria on Bee Cave Pkwy to connect to 620. From 620 to Anderson Mill, we make our way to our Parmer store located at 9900 W Parmer Lane for our second stop. There is a difficult left turn off of Anderson Mill onto Pecan Creek Pkwy. Since Anderson Mill is a busy street, you will most likely need to stop in the bike lane and wait for traffic to clear before turning left. Signal and call-out as you are slowing to so that the cyclists behind you aware that you are stopping. Also, there is sand/gravel in portions of the bike lane on Pecan Creek Pkwy. Pay close attention. Do not ride through it. Check for vehicles before pulling out of the bike lane. Point/call out the gravel/sand to the other cyclists.
The second stop is about 37 miles in. The route from the Bee Cave store to Parmer is a long section with climbing and cross-wind. We recommend stopping somewhere in Lakeway or just south of the dam for a water refill if you need it before arriving at Parmer.
Next up, the Research store. Take Parmer south to Amherst, which dead-ends into Duval, and then Duval until it dead-ends into Jollyville. From Jollyville, turn left at Braker. Jollyville is a busy road and hard to cut across, so we recommend turning right, moving into the left lane, and then making a u-turn. After the u-turn, stay in the far left lane on Braker. Ride down Braker in the left lane, underneath 183, and then turn left onto the service road. Stay in the far right lane after turning left. You'll pass a Chick-fil-A and the store's parking lot is immediately after the Public Storage turn-in. The Research store is located at 10947 Research Blvd.
The final stop is at the Guadalupe store before returning to Lamar. At this point, the ride is just over 47 miles in and most of the climbing is behind you. Less than 20 miles to go before returning to the Lamar store. The route from Research takes you south on Mesa and Shoal Creek. When Shoal Creek dead ends into 38th you have two options:, you can either turn left at the intersection onto 38th, or take Shoal Creek Trail underneath the street. Make your way to 34th where you will cross Lamar, and then take a right on Grandview, then a left on 32nd, and follow it to the store located at 3202 Guadalupe St.
Now it's the last stretch to Lamar. From there, take 31st west until it dead-ends into 34th, and take a left. Then make a left at Jefferson to take Westover to Exposition for a few more rollers before heading back into town on the Lance Armstrong Bikeway.
Or, you can just take Guadalupe St back to the Lamar store.
Be careful and watch for pedestrians, strollers, and pups when crossing the Pfluger Bridge. Take Lee Barton to Barton Springs. Use the sidewalk and crosswalk when returning to the store.
Remember, this is a self-supported ride. There will be no signs. The roads will not be marked. There is no SAG support. You will need to be self-sufficient and know safe routes to get from store-to-store.
