Re: 2nd Annual Beyond EPIC Labor Day Weekend Extravaganza

I'm a little confused on the Saturday morning meeting place. Is it basically on the corner of 183 and Spicewood Springs Rd (McNeil Dr)?

Re: 2nd Annual Beyond EPIC Labor Day Weekend Extravaganza

The meeting place address is:

7101 Hwy 71 West, Austin, TX.

This is known as the "Y" in Oak Hill, formed by the intersection of Hwy 71 and Hwy 290. Meet in the the parking lot of the former Albertson's Grocery Store, next door to a Jim's Restaurant.


Now that I think about it, I should add - this is the official meeting place. Others may be linking up elsewhere and joining us en-route.

Tom, a few of us are meeting up in Round Rock, near me, at the Jack in the Box on 620 and Great Oaks at 7:30 (well, leaving at 7:30) to ride down and meet up at Richard_'s start. You are welcome to join us if you want.

Otherwise, the Jim's is pretty obvious on the south side of 71 near 290. Basically the light to the west of 290 and 71.

Re: 2nd Annual Beyond EPIC Labor Day Weekend Extravaganza

Hello everyone! I am new guy to this forum. I did the TAR ride in 2008. I have been watching this thread for a while. I even got the room in Junction about a month ago but was not sure if I could make it. Now I can make it. I will meet up at 281/Round Mtn at 9am. Looking forward to meeting everyone.

Re: 2nd Annual Beyond EPIC Labor Day Weekend Extravaganza

I too am new to this but think I'll give it a try. Hope to see everyone bright and early at Jims. I live in Katy and will trailer my bike to the meeting place. Is anyone else leaving from this area and how secure will the truck/trailer be in the parking lot?

Richard, did the route change from the original GPS tracks you put up for download?? I have downloaded them but want to update if they changed.

Re: 2nd Annual Beyond EPIC Labor Day Weekend Extravaganza

Well, finally out of lurk-mode.

I booked a room a 2 weeks ago, hoping to finagle enough 'pass time' to make this ride.

Well I will be there. Looking forward to meeting everybody.

Re: 2nd Annual Beyond EPIC Labor Day Weekend Extravaganza

wedge1,

The Albertson's parking lot is right in the middle of a lot of retail stores. Your truck/trailer will be as safe there as anywhere, I think. But, to be fair, it's not guarded or fenced in any way and the Albertson's is closed (Jim's shares the parking lot and it's always open.) Your other option would be to pay to park at one of the airport parking lots in their fenced lots.

Re: 2nd Annual Beyond EPIC Labor Day Weekend Extravaganza

bsheet2,

I suggested an alternate day 2 route, which from the discussion here may be the one most riders prefer to do. I haven't plotted it out in either Google or GPS yet. I'll try to get it done this evening.

Re: 2nd Annual Beyond EPIC Labor Day Weekend Extravaganza

Ok, thanks. If you get it done that would be great. If not, no worries. I will just follow the leaders.

I will load the original route on my GPS in case I get seperated from everyone.

As a noob rider and with Gripsters on my bike I expect I will be a slow poke. So if I slow things down too much, just let me know and I can hop out on a hiway. Will not hurt my feelings at all.

Sounds like another one for my James River bypass group.

I'll plan on meeting you guys at the main meeting spot so I don't have to drive all the way north to turn around and drive all the way south. I'm sure I'll be getting enough seat time as it is.

I guess we'll be taking the 290 route, unless somebody knows a better route, open for suggestions.
