    October Club Ride @ Muleshoe
    Saturday, October 13, 2012 - 09:00
    It is time to hit the beautiful, shady trails at Muleshoe. Riders love the fast rolling sections in the middle that make the rocky drops and climbs on either end well worth it. More details as to where we we set up for the post-ride lunch.

    As always, we will be breaking into groups based on skill level and then we'll hit the trail with the "No Drop" policy in effect so no one gets left behind.
    ARR will host a post-ride lunch and everyone is encouraged to bring something to share (fruit, sweets, salads, side dishes, chips and dips, etc.)As always, we will break into group based on skill level and how long on participants want to ride.

    You do not have to be a ARR member to participate in this ride but we'd love to have you join up. All riders must sign a waiver and properly where a helmet when on the bike. Bring plenty of water!

    ARR Members in good standing will be reimbursed the gate/day fee so if you have any questions about your membership status, email arrwebsite@gmail.com and we'll let you know your status.

    Please use the Sign Up tab on the website event or email us to let us know you'll be riding. It helps us plan for food and drinks!!

    Directions: Take Highway 71 west past the Pedernales River. Approximately 2 miles past the Pedernales River turn right on Paleface Ranch Road. Continue on Paleface Ranch Rd. (go straight at the 3-way stop) until you get to Co. Rd. 414; this road tees into the road you’re on from the right and there are several fine landmarks to help find it, including a sign on the left for the Exxon/Kountry Kitchen, Windemere, and the George Jones Donkey Farm (no kidding). Turn right on Co. Rd. 414 and this road will end at Muleshoe, about 2.8 miles later. The road really curves a lot, but just stay on it and you’ll get there.

    Trail Description: The Muleshoe trail is a perfect complement to the trails we already enjoy in the Austin area. It is a 7.5-mile loop trail with 95% wooded singletrack with some moderate climbs and descents, a few drop-offs, lots of twists and turns, and a couple of small creek crossings…. oh, yeah and a nice big lake to cool off in after the ride. The fact that it makes a big loop with jeep roads intersecting at 5 points along the trail makes it nice for beginners and families who might not want to complete an entire loop and provides good access to the trailhead/parking area. And for the intermediate/advanced riders, its a trail you can go fast on and have a lot of fun. (Watch out for feral hogs—they’re out there!)
    This trail is a wonderful example of what can happen when mountain bikers work in partnership with land agencies combined with persistence, organization, and of course, a lot of hard work. As usual, a relatively small group of dedicated volunteers have made this trail a reality.

    Fee: $5 entry fee per vehicle.

    We generally set up our picnic camp at the circular end of Tatum Road under the shade of a group of trees and ride up to the main trail head. After you've entered and checked in at the gate, proceed on down the road, stay to the Left at the fork and drive down towards the lake.

    And yes, we are watching the weather for rain tomorrow (October 12) Cross your fingers and think dry.
