    My son and I happened upon the ride today. Walnut Creek was our backyard for several years and he was just old enough to start riding the trails when we moved to Mueller in 2009. Since then it has been a hit or miss proposition for even getting him on the bike. Since 2009, we only get to WC 3 or 4 times per year and today was one of those. After exploring the new paved trail, we hit familiar singletrack. We pulled over to let a big group through, and I latched on to the back of the group with the boy in tow. After one of the regrouping points (thanks, ride leader) we learned it was an ARR ride. Before long, the boy (now 14 y.o.) was on the wheel in front of him with me in tow. I have anticipated the moment that my son would be stronger than me on the bike and while he may not be there quite yet, from the pace he rode while hanging on to the ride today, I see that it won't be long. It's funny that he has always been so lazy riding behind his dad, but to see him hang on to the group like he did today, was a thrill! Thanks, ARR, might just have to renew my membership after many years of mostly roadie activity.
    Happy trails!

    Glad you were able to find out about us and that is awesome you ride with your son. We have different level groups so you and your son can ride in one that suites you both (for now :-) ). Later you could ride in different groups . Just check austinridgeriders.com for ride events and cancelations and hope to see you on future rides. Mike
