Cyclebum fan club meeting...AKA Pint night

Hey Andy (room mate) wanna go to Gingerman at 6pm for a Real Ale pint night?

I really hope it is Lost Gold, although it is a little early for its release.

"Lost Gold IPA (summer release) draught only
Massive additions of Cascade, Columbus, Amarillo, and Summit hops make Lost Gold IPA a hop lover's dream. Vienna malt and pale English crystal malt give Lost Gold its rich golden-orange color.
ABV: 6.6%, IBU: 55, OG(plato): 15.0"

This is one of the brews that helped convert me to the ale, and more specifially the IPA, -snob that I am.

Now then,



  1. How far away is Blanco?

    Could there be a ride to the brewery for some beer tasting? Is that too dangerous?

  2. The round trip is a cool century.

    Google maps gives a route on 290 and 281. I have no idea about the shoulders or other safety concerns on those stretches. I have ridden part of 290 to get to Mansfield dam.

  3. you gotta do this:

    i know you said you aren't into lonnnng rides...well you don't have to do the longest ride and then i heard they might even do shuttles back to austin?!

    sold. i'm doing 80.

  4. another idea, that you haven't thought of yet:

    riding 71 does seem sketchy though. there are some side roads that can probably get you there in one peice.
