This Week with TRG – 09/11/2016 Edition

Another week and yes, another ride. Hopefully everyone is recovered from a great Labor Day weekend. As mentioned last week in the newsletter, we will be offering the TRG Original (Black with new artwork mods), The TRG Tribute (Black and Pink a re-do of last year with art mods), and the TRG Summer/CX/MTB kit (Newest of them all, again with art mods). If you have any questions re: fit or colors, please do not hesitate to ask. In years past, if you ordered a kit the previous year or the current year, you were put on the roster for our sponsors. This year, we are changing this. You must order for the current year, which this order qualifies, to be on the TRG roster for discounts applicable to our sponsors. No one will be grandfathered in, so to speak. I will have a current roster after these links close, and the roster will be updated and given to all said sponsors for 2017. I appreciate everyone’s support throughout the years and I look forward to growing, having fun, and seeing everyone out there in the coming year. 2017 looks to be even better then all the rest, with new faces, new focus, and new items on the agenda.

This Week’s proposed route!! Yep, its ugly,, but on the brighter side, the weather is supposed to be a tad bit cooler. https://ridewithgps.com/routes/16451512
There will be an intermediate group with the route being determined by the ride leader. It will be something simple, or so I am told.
Start times are 0700hrs from Walsh Middle School and 0725hrs from The Peddler in Avery Ranch.
Sunday we will be back at it at Walnut Creek Park MTBing. Meet up in the parking lot nearest the pool at 0645hrs with wheels rolling at 0700hrs. This is a fun, casual mtb ride with the goal of 15 miles.
As we all know, riding a bike, especially in Austin, is a dangerous proposition. Other riders, cars, flats, and road debris are all the norm on any given ride. With that in mind, please be careful to ride within your abilities and be on the lookout for any road hazards. WE are all responsible for ourselves and how we ride, so lets make it as safe as possible.
There are lots of rides coming up in October. Almost one every weekend!!
Here is a taste of what’s to come!!
